Daily Photo – The Impossible Bridge

I took this photo out the window of the train I was on – the same train you can see in the photo!  This is the Glacier Express, a crazy-awesome train that goes through the Alps and connects Zermatt and St. Moritz.  It was recommended by many nice people here on the blog, and here I am re-recommending it! :)

Daily Photo – Zurich at Night

It was a cool night — one of those nights when I was glad I lugged around a jacket all day.

These dark waters that run through old European cities at night set an interesting mood. I can’t quite put my finger on it… heavy and deep and dark… but strange and light and reflective on top. I think some of these things you can’t quite see end up in the photo, somehow.

Zurich at Sunset

Thanks again!

Several months ago I asked for recommendations about places to visit in Switzerland, so I wanted to thank you again for your input… it really helped us to have a great trip!

Daily Photo – Zurich at Sunset

We had a great evening in Zurich. We found a lovely little Italian food restaurant and everything was wonderful. Our meal finished just as sunset sprang upon us, so we had a nice walk through the city to find this spot to watch the sunset.

The Secret Google Chilling Vat

Thanks again Google Zurich

I do have a funny little story from the Zurich offices. We did a Google+ hangout from one of their special conference rooms. It was called “SkyNet”, and halfway through the hangout, the windows shades started to automatically close. It was really eerie and I made a joke about SkyNet, and there was nervous laughter behind me.

Daily Photo – The Secret Google Chilling Vat

On the tour around the cool Zurich offices, Brian White took me into this watery oasis. It is where euro-Googlers come to nap when they need a brain-break. I don’t know for sure, but I imagine them slinking around in here while wearing trendy euro-clubbing clothes.

There were soft water-sounds wafting about, and everything was very zen. You can choose whatever sleeping arrangement you like: the porcelain tub filled with red foam cubes, the leathery massage chair that doesn’t ask questions, or many more..

Soft Zurich at Night

Slowly getting through the Switzerland shots!

This batch is taking me a long time… plus there has been a lot of trouble along with a Drobo problem that gave me the blues… that slowed me down… and made me drop my faith in the Drobos one notch… I’m still using them, but I hold my breath a little more to be honest.

Daily Photo – Soft Zurich at Night

These slow-moving huge rivers make for some very nice reflections.

With HDR there is a problem of “ghosting” which is when the various frames show different things. I usually leave the water alone when it gets ghosted because it has sort of an impressionistic feel to it, I think. In a sense, it gives the “impression” of water, which is somewhere between a photo and our memory.
