Big Cities and Little 'uns
This is one of the most famous bridges where lovers go to secure a padlock as a symbol of their undying love. I've never done this and I don't know the actual ritual. But, I would assume that they would lock it and then throw the key into the Seine river below. That seems like it would be romantic. Anyway, apparently, the sheer mass of the locks turns out to be a bit of a hazard to the bridge. I never understood this, as I would think the bridge could easily handle the physics of that situation. Either way, officials come by on occasion to cut off the locks. But I wonder if anyone has ever gone down to the bottom of the river to see how many keys are down there on the bottom.
When I stayed at Phulay Bay in Krabi, I spent almost every night skulking around the resort and taking photos. The architecture around here is so interesting and beautiful that you really can't take a bad photo anywhere. So I made a little game every night where I would take 100 photos and always try to improve on getting fresh angles and composing objects in different ways. This night was particularly good because the moon came out to play with the clouds.

On my first day in Moscow I was treated with some amazing clouds. This has been a city I've always wanted to visit, but it turns out to be a pretty difficult place to visit. It's not really a hot-spot for tourists, but there are so many interesting photo spots all over the place. The Kremlin here is perhaps the most iconic spot in Russia with all of these unusual onion-shaped domes. I wanted to end up back here to take some night photos, but Moscow is such a craze place that I ended up becoming distracted by all sorts of strange parties.
