Portraits and People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
We also had a huge PhotoWalk ended at this Italian restaurant atop a building in Harajuku. There were over a hundred people inside at the party. I gave a speech about the effects of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints on the Impressionist movement and how this tradition now continues online with Google+.Right after that, I discovered there was a huge balcony out the side door with an amazing view of the city! I went out there with Vic Gundotra, Bradley Horowitz and a few others to grab a shot of the view. - Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
This is a rather unique Quiver tree, on the edge of the largest canyon in Namibia. Every one of these trees is totally unique, and one never looks like another. They feel a bit like humans or words in that way, and how they work in context to one another and the environment is as interesting as their individual shape. One evening, the sky was as clear as still water and everything came out in context behind and through the tree.

Ahhh, beautiful Kyoto! It’s one of my favorite cities in the world, so going back to re-master this one, seven years later, was still as much of a joy as the first time. It was also great to use better tools like Aurora HDR. to give it a better “look.” Before, I think I might have just used the sliders in Photomatix and not even done any touchup in Photoshop. I’ve also learned a lot more about color theory and this sort of thing in the time betwixt.
