A hot night in Dallas!

MORE Photo Walks?

I was thinking maybe Europe or Asia for the next set of photo walks… I’m not sure because we still missed a lot of cities in the USA I wanted to visit, especially in the Pacific Northwest. Decisions, decisions… Well, in the meantime, check out our USA Tour Highlights Page! :)

Daily Photo – A hot night in Dallas!

It was another crazy photo walk where unexpected things happened. At the end of the photo walk, we all gathered here when suddenly all these fire dancers appeared by surprise… with hundreds of photographers, we decided to have a huge field day with it!

A beautiful chapel in Bali from Above

A Favorite Feynman Video

I share these with my kids a lot… I’ve read about three of his books and I love the way he talks about things. Like, for example, did you know trees don’t grow out of the ground? Trees mostly grow out of the air.

See that amazing white chapel down there? It's hard to tell from this angle, but the whole front part of it is glass and opens up onto the Balinese ocean. It was just remarkable inside! I only got in once to take photos, but I thought this perspective was especially interesting. I got this while I was with the Ritz-Carlton in Bali and taking a group of orphans around.

Sedona Storm

More Videos Coming

We’re getting into a groove a little bit when it comes to creating and editing videos… be sure to subscribe to the Stuck In Customs YouTube Channel to see all the latest ones!

Daily Photo – Sedona Storm

Wow I almost got stuck in a torrential downpour here! You don't want to be hiking around when these things hit… the clay on these mountains in Sedona gets super-slippery and it's a great recipe for going ass-over-teakettle. There's a little house up there on top of that mountain —don't know if you can see it or not, but it looks like the universe is about to suck up the house!

Intense Canterbury

Trello

I have a hot tip for you if you work with small (or big!) teams to help keep track of all the projects. We use “Trello” here at Stuck In Customs to figure out what projects are happening where! It’s a web app, and it’s pretty fun. I’ve actually never been so organized! :)

Daily Photo – Intense Canterbury

This is a rather intense and colorful photo today, eh? I tell ya, it was a pretty golden light there… it was so unusual that I pulled over on the way to Tekapo to take this photo… and I was an even more colorful mood when I processed it!

Rainbow over Bryce Canyon

Back to Utah

Okay after three days of this, I’ve decided I gotta get back to Utah! :)

Daily Photo – Rainbow over Bryce Canyon

And then after the storm I was treated with this. How lucky! Whenever I see a rainbow I still get excited like a little girl. I know they just don’t last too long so I snap away while the magic is happening!

The Mirrored Tea Room in Venice

The Grand Prize Winner!

We’ve been doing an amazing photo contest over at Viewbug that collected about 20,000 photos. There were so many good ones… it was pretty much impossible to figure one out! Quite tortuous, really!

The winner gets to come to New Zealand to spend a week at our Photo Workshop Adventures — it’s gonna be so epic! Thanks again to the amazing Ritz-Carlton for helping out with this prize!

And here’s the amazing winning photo. Now this is my kinda shot… it’s got it all, a beautiful sky with a perfectly composed landscape. The colors and the fantasy-wonder of it all is right up my alley. I love it when these photos are somewhere between fantasy and reality. I also really like the soft bowl of the grasses in the bottom of the photo; it has a very welcoming and inviting feel. The whole thing is just a pleasure to look at! Great job Amanda Hughes!

Amazing Runner Up Number 1!

This guy is insane! Man those are some of the best star photos that I’ve ever seen in my entire life… and I’ve seen oooooodles! And then I went to his website (which has the awesome name AstroPhotoBear.com) and was even more amazing. That photo on his front page just blows me away… it reminds me I have to get out there more to take night photos. Very inspirational!

Amazing Runner Up Number 2!

Now this gal (Lisa Holloway) is amaze-maze! I’ve actually followed her work for years. I actually just was sitting here wondering if she’s won many awards on Viewbug, and I saw she has won OVER 21,000 AWARDS! Are you kidding me… wow she deserves it. What a talent. I want her to come take pictures of me running through a field!

Yesterday’s Photo Mystery

By the way, if you could not figure out yesterday’s photo, just look at it upside down… and then it will be easier to figure out. No photoshop magic or anything… just cheeky cropping.

Daily Photo – The Mirrored Tea Room in Venice

This place is actually very easy to find but I didn’t find it till the end! It’s right off Saint Mark’s square, so it’s definitely worth a stop, either for photography or for tea and cake! I felt in a bit of a rush, so I didn’t really get to sit down and take some time to myself, which is a shame… but sometimes that’s the way your day works out!
