This is a nice HDR shot I grabbed of a Buddhist temple in Thailand. I would have called this “Heaven Opening”, but I don’t think that makes sense over a Buddhist temple. If you squint, closely at the sun rays, you can see your other lives.
Daily Photo: Stuck in Customs in Space
This shot is decidedly not Russian, not secret, not a bunker, but maybe it has held a few cosmonauts. Anyway, this place was just way too cool not to photograph.
I was burning hot, sweating like a nearby migrant worker, but I just had to stop to take this HDR, since Buddha asked me to and all… you don’t want to ignore that guy.
Over the weekend we hung pictures up at the gallery. Everything looks pretty sharp and those of you are coming to the gallery opening should see something a bit different, perhaps. I don’t know… impossible to be objective, but I do know it is different than what is usually shown there at Halcyon.
I’ll be showing about 45 pieces. Here is a sampling of the ones at the show. You will notice the first three are exceptionally pointy.

Here is a bright and gilded temple I came upon in Thailand. These temples are surrounded by scammers that tell you the temple is closed and no tourists are allowed. They try to get you to go to their little store a few blocks away to buy wooden figurines and plastic buddhas to hang from your tuk-tuk mirror.
The water is disgusting. At one point, I was trying to take a picture of an interesting bit, and there was a big while plastic-bag thing floating into my frame. I was thinking, “Stupid dirty Bangkok!” and then I pulled down the camera to look and it was actually a dead bloated dog.
