Portraits and People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
Ancient Nikko I have a bunch of these textured shots (See my Textures Tutorial) that I will be posting over the next few weeks. I showed this one to Jack this evening when he came over, and he seems to like the look as much as I do!This is my first shot from Nikko, Japan. Nikko is famous for all the incredible temples from the Edo period. I woke up early (violently early, let us say) to go out and visit all the sites before the tourists came. You guys know I don't like tourists in the shots... Actually, to tell the truth, I don't like them around at all. I like to listen to my strange music and roam around these ancient places by myself, stopping to take photos when I am ready.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
One Night in Bangkok I arrived into Thailand this weekend and have been in content-creation mode non stop. I did take a chance back at the hotel to process this one picture I thought y'all would enjoy.(and yes that sun picture is real... it was burning through the bottom while still streaming light over the top).This picture is of Wat Arun, a famous Buddhist temple in Thailand. I took it from a really cool little Italian restaurant across the way that is attached to a boutique hotel named "Arun Residence". I will stay at this place next time - be sure to get the balcony room at the top if you come... it's just over $100 a night and is the best (and only) view of this temple in Bangkok.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Modern Techno Life in Tokyo What happens in hyper-techno places like Japan and Korea seem to be the techno-canaries in the coal mine for the future of technology and behavior in the west. Several years ago, almost everyone walked around their ultra modern-cities with their heads buried in their mobile phones.- Trey RatcliffRead more of this entry, including the announcement of a new print, at the blog at Stuck in Customs.
