Morning Sun on Naples

Very early in the morning I got lucky and caught the sun before it rose above that heavy cloud layer. For only a few minutes, it brightly illuminated all of Naples across the bay. The rest of the time I was there, this area was fairly hazy and poorly lit. For this one, I recommend you click here to see the “Large on Black” version.

The Southpark Guys in Amsterdam

Here are a few more shots for my Portraits Series. These were taken during the Reason event in Amsterdam last week, when Trey Parker and Matt Stone were giving a keynote speech. They were a riot, as usual. These guys are my comedic heroes just barely ahead of Bob Saget. A selection of pictures below are from the press conference that was held the next day when a bunch of non-Reason related “journalists” came in to interview Matt and Trey. It was unfortunate that the quality of questions was so dismal. I was sitting there with a bunch of really cutting questions that they would have appreicated more than, “Why did you move your animation team to Korea?” That question was, like the others, based on the reporter not really knowing his countries or his cartoons.
This is Trey

This is Trey.

Trey’s dream is be a movie producer and sit in a trailer with Matt while complaining about the first class service on their last flight.

Trey is currently emotionally drained by half-wit reporters that are asking him inane and poorly-researched questions.

This is Matt

This is Matt.

Matt’s dream is to someday marry Andrew Sullivan and raise a brood of Scientologists.

Matt is currently in Amsterdam at the Reason conference. He has just finished describing how Michael Moore grossly misrepresnted him in Bowling for Columbine. His tone is of slight disgust but not malice.

(btw Matt, I have the “other” pictures ready too… And don’t forget to call your fellow Libertarian to make you a “movie-game-that-doesn’t-suck”)

Druggie Cafe

Well in Amsterdam it is hard to tell the difference between who is high and who is not high, since everyone is pretty laid back anyway. As you can see in this canal-side cafe, everyone is pretty relaxed. This was taken with the new camera, and if you have the bandwidth, there is nice detail on the HUGE version.

Ancient Roman Golden Arches

This was taken around midnight in the Ancient Roman Forum. These are the natural colors that came about from the exposure length and from the HDR effect.

Tall and Skinny

Here is an HDR of the one of the thousands of quaint scenes around Amsterdam.

Windmill at Dusk

This was taken just after the sunset of the previous picture on the lake.

More Churches of Holland

Here is a collection of churches in Amsterdam.

The End of the Church

I could not help but notice that the stain on the glass here was distinctly different than the glass stains in the nearby red light district.

Canal Cruise

We took a cruise around the canals one of the evenings there. This one was taken around sunset.

Farewell Holland

This was taken my final evening in Holland. I found a remote pastoral area with several olde world windmills. I was the only one around… I got fairly cold waiting for sunset, but I think it was worth it.
