Eden Muse at Burning Man

Organic Matter

I’ve made about 100 Plotagraphs now… I’ve started to experiment more with a “hair in the wind” effect.

Here’s the latest Plotagraph of a random morning when I ran into this model, Eden Muse at sunrise. A nice encounter… and a natural poser, like my little girls! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – Crossing the wooden bridge in Venice

There are three huge bridges that cross the grand canal in Venice, and this is one of the most famous views. I'm always impressed at these feats of engineering… I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall during the original construction in the olden days. It occurs to me I don't even really have any idea how bridges are even built! I kind of have an idea, but I don't think I could actually build one, or, at least, not one I was willing to walk on myself.

On top of the World in New Zealand

Fun Social Media Day

This is one of the photos from “International Social Media Day” β€” which was an absolute blast! πŸ™‚ It started with the dog derby then ended down at a sheep station… great to meet so many people! πŸ™‚

Daily Photo – On top of the World in New Zealand

There are so many incredible mountains here in the southern alps around Queenstown. I think this one is Mount Alfred and it's quite majestic! You can climb up it without too much trouble (well, there's no cliffs or anything), but that may take you 3-4 hours. In this case, we decided to fly up here with Over the Top Helicopters!

Daily Photo – Dining Al Fresco in Denver

One night a year, they shut down one of the main squares and everyone eats outside. Each restaurant gets a block of about 20-30 tables and patrons eat under the lights in the summer air. The weather was just perfect this night… I was a bit worried because the Denver days were quite hot β€” not what I expected.

JFK Memorial

Treadmill Pain

We brought this treadmill all the way to New Zealand, and now we can’t get it to work. So Ethan and I spent like 3 hours taking it apart and getting it back out of the bedroom. I can tell you that it is, BY FAR, the heaviest thing I’ve ever carried. It’s really incredible how heavy it actually is! I don’t think I’ll ever get over it.

Daily Photo – JFK Memorial

A few weeks ago I was back in Dallas for some family stuff, but I took a day off to go out shooting with my friend Gino. Wow did we have a fun time, tooling around and taking photos. Gino had the bright idea of using the quadcopter to follow the path of the “magic bullet.” At one point, a cop came up behind him and said, “You know, you should watch out for cops.” Gino said, “Yeah whatever pal,” and then turned around to notice it was a cop.
