Daily Photo – Incredible Mount Aspiring
I had an incredible day up with Aspiring Helicopters right before my trip to the USA. We first went up to an amazing cabin way up in the mountains for a wine and cheese party, then we took off again to circle around this mountain at sunset. It was like a dream! I put on my earphones underneath my heli-big-boy-earphones and listened to all kinds of strange music as we flew around. It was very dreamy!
I got some news that our photo walk finale in Dallas was featured in Modern Luxury Dallas — that was the final shot we got right before going back to have the after-party at the Ritz-Carlton where a dozen feet-masseuses awaited us! What a treat!
Daily Photo – Trees in Namibia
I've forgotten the names of these sorts of trees, but they were everywhere in the desert and canyon areas of Namibia. One of the most striking things about them is how unique each one was. You never saw two that had a similar branch or leaf patterns… I'm really not much of a tree guy (obviously), but I did find myself drawn to each and every one and how they were so different! You may even remember this kind of tree from one of my favorite star photos from Namibia. Oh yes, I just remembered! Quiver trees. That's what they're called… funny how memory works and doesn't work!
One thing that surprised me the most about seeing all the different tribes in Papua New Guinea was how the females were as richly adorned as the men. And they all followed the same pattern in the tribe, whether or not they were male or female. There was a little variation here and there. I had to look close to see the differences, but I am sure that between the tribe the differences were quite unique.
I went to a new temple inside The Forbidden City where I had never visited before. Inside, there must have been at least FIFTY couples getting their wedding photos made there. It was quite a scene! No one wears the kind of wedding outfits we've come to know in the west. The girls have lavish amazing dresses, often red in color rather than white. And the guys… boy howdy is that a scene! They basically dress like the Harry and Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber that time they put on those crazy suits for the charity event. I got a ton of photos… need to share more of them!
But I’ve also updated a few reviews for the Phantom and Inspire. My reviews were woefully out of date… sorry about that but now they are up-to-speed! DJI Phantom Review DJI Inspire Review
Daily Photo – Another Central Otago Pond
Well, there seem to be no less than 10,000 of these ponds all over the South Island of New Zealand. And they're always surrounded with really beautiful objects that reflect like a painting. It's almost as if some guy was making a perfect video game map and just sprinkled ponds and trees and rocks around in perfect formations… and it's like I'm driving around finding these little secret spots in the New Zealand Video Game. I think it actually might be true, especially if what some people say is true, and we're living in a projection. This is the projection I'd like to live in without apriori knowledge!
You guys may notice by now that I’m posting a Papua New Guinea shot every three days! Is that a good pace? I’ve never really done anything like that… just experimenting and mixing things up… so tell me what you think!
Daily Photo – People of Papua New Guinea Part 15
You don't want to mess with these women. I generally notice that my life goes better when I listen to the women in my life, and this was no exception. MOST of the time, they are not holding guns, but I find it's a pretty good idea to listen to women whether or not they happen to be holding a weapon.
This year we did kind of an experiment with the Trey’s Lightroom Presets and decided to make a new pack each month. It went great and people loved it. We’re gonna do something different in 2016… you’ll see!
We’ve planned something secret and exciting for when we go to Venice for our Upcoming Photo Adventure, all I can say for now is that it involves fancy costumes….yes, there will be loads of photos I can share
Daily Photo – Late for Dinner in Venice
How can you be late for dinner in Italy? It's impossible I think… It's Italy, everything is fine! And yes, I was EXTRA late for dinner this night because I got so distracted taking photos during the blue hour. Every direction was a new photo and I was actually being pulled (for some reason) away from the direction of the restaurant rather than towards it. I'd be taking a photo of one thing… then my eye would wander then I'd think, okay I gotta hurry over THERE next. Haha… at one point I almost decided not to show up for dinner at all!
Daily Photo – Morning at my Room at the Ritz-Carlton Bali
Wow — what a place to wake up in! And that water was so warm I could just slip into it anytime… watch the sunrise or sunset… just amazing all around! My very first morning here it was stormy, but after that every morning had an equally beautiful sunrise. And I hope you enjoyed the little video above!
I just got one of the new Devialet Phantom Speakers— the Bluetooth version. I really love it… I can watch that thing all day. I’ve never seen a speaker like it in my life… and the sound is crazy! I like it so much; I’m gonna buy another one I think!
Daily Photo – People of Papua New Guinea Part 14
Here come the mud men of Asaro! These guys were creepy dot com. When I got back from Papua New Guinea, I shared all these photos with my family, and the girls were most scared of these dudes. I almost brought home one of the mud men masks that I tried to buy, but now I am glad I didn't… I find that little girls don't like to be scared, and they don't like the kinds of jokes that scare them! Haha… boys are a bit easier in that dept!
