Family Errands

I am sure cramming three or more people on a motorcycle looks surprising, but, surprisingly, my surprise began to subside after just a few days. I think the MOST I saw on a motorcycle was 6 people… a mom and dad and 4 kids squnched in between. I never got a great shot of that…

…as I was walking around Jogjakarta, I did find this young mom and her two kids off on their daily errands.

The Sulfur Runoff at Mammoth

This is the Mammoth area of Yellowstone. It’s in the north, up near the Montana Wyoming border.  The whole area is very alien with that acrid smell and the crystallizing trees…

An Ancient Tapestry

We’re here for the tapestries! I’ve always wanted to do an improv like that to talk my way into a German castle, but the opportunity has yet to present itself. I’ve got it in my back pocket, just in case.

This place could not be further from Germany… this is a temple a few hours from Siem Reap in Cambodia… it is quite deep in the jungle and it was quite a thrill to explore it!

Shanghai Surprise…

I figured now that the election is over, everyone will be ready for a little Shanghai Surprise… so here are a couple of my favorites from there…

The Secret Underground of Iceland

It was about 5 in the morning in Reykjavik and I was colder than any human is supposed to be, but I had my coffee and tripod and was on a mission to catch the sunrise. While en route, I passed the icy city hall while the dawn light was breaking to capture this.

The Streetside Store with the Magical Creatures

Isn’t this just the sort of thing you expect to see in a small streetside window in France? Well it’s exactly what I saw so I had to grab a shot… Yes – I know it’s busy… but that’s kinda the point 🙂

The Taj, Framed

I recently gave a few talks here in Austin (one at UT and one at ACC) about photography, this technique, and various other meandering topics on the brain and perception that I hope did not bore the crowd! This is one of the photos that we worked on during the class, so I thought I would upload to share with everyone!

I also provided a link to my tutorial in the class… here it is for those of you that are interested!

Isabella the Princess on Halloween

We just finished yet another Halloween. We have this fun little neighborhood picnic at the top of our street before the festivities begin. I asked Isabella if she wanted to act like a princess for the camera, and guess what?
