Contest at Matador Travel

One of my friends over at Matador just emailed me and said they are having a travel photography and writing contest for students which you can see here.

He emailed me from Buenos Aires, where I have never been. Since I like to post a picture with every entry… I will do the closest thing I have to South America, which is still quite far away in Central America. This is the volcano at Arenal in Costa Rica.

Shrooms in the Lounge

The lounge area of the Breakers in Palm Beach has some very cool light-based sculptures. I’ve never seen anything quite like them. The hotel staff eyed me suspiciously as I went around with my tripod to get pictures. They kept looking at one another with a "I’m sure he got permission to do that" kinda look…

The Entrance to Work

This is the lower floor of the office building in Kharkov, Ukraine. The building holds many companies and Program Ace is on the top floors. Once you are actually into the offices themselves, they are perfectly nice and they have sweet broadband… but the entrance area down below could use a coat of paint or two…

The Calm After the Storm

A few days ago I posted a picture of the storm at the airport here in Palm Beach. I was contemplating flying into the heart of the storm instead of sitting in a room full of attorneys for the day. Today I chose the latter and it was about as much fun as it sounds. It was my first time through this particular experience and it wasn’t what I would call a rockin’ good time. I wish I could have said, “Your honor, the witness (me) is being badgered” but there was no judge, just a bunch of lawyers quoting rules and regulations I’ve never heard of. I think, technically, lawyers have formed a sovereign nation who have created a set of rules that abstract them and all behavior from regular society. That’s another pseudo-sociological concept I am working on, but is a rather empty thing to really think about unless you are on a break in one of those badgering-sessions.

After the session, I headed out to get some pictures around Palm Beach. I twisted my ankle in an effort to get this one… that dock is even more uneven than it looks!

The Blue of Lamma Island

Lamma Island is one of the many tiny islands surrounding Hong Kong. It has some great fish restaurants… needless to say.

A Storm at the Airport

This always causes mild panic that I will be delayed in the airport. This was taken in Palm Beach, where I will be for a few days to meet with some attorneys. I don’t know if I would rather be in a plane in that storm or in a room full of attorneys… tough choice, really.
