We are a big fan of the Canadian photographer Chris Luckhardt and we got our hands on a new awesome urban exploring series by Chris.

Nara Dreamland is an abandoned theme park near Nara, Japan. It was built in 1961 as a carbon copy of Disneyland in California. The theme park was permanently close on August 31, 2006.

This metal sculpture – known as the "W'eel Turtle" – was "erected as a novelty" in 1982 by George Gottbreht (he owns Dale's Thrift Barn which is next door). The sculpture was welded together using more than 2,000 steel wheel rims. Gottbreht claims the sculpture is the world's largest man-made turtle. The head is reported to weigh more than a ton and can be moved up and down on a pivot.

An interview I did last week with +OPIN Software about the upcoming release of Drupal 8. The interview also includes quotes from that +Dries Buytaert guy ;) and a mention about the inaugural Drupal North Regional Summit (drupalnorth.org) on June 25-28th in Toronto.

#Drupal #Drupal8 #DrupalNorth  
Curious about Drupal 8? So are we!! The release of the greatly-anticipated Drupal 8 has long been the source of curiosity, excitement and, with a spate of delays, some frustration.

"Standing at the top of the rotting roller coaster, Chris Luckhardt leans perilously out over the edge, almost 100 feet above the ground. Skeletal tracks and beams plunge away into the gloom, part of the bones of the abandoned theme park that stretches out below. Fog hangs in the air around the explorer, and the mouldering wood is treacherous beneath his feet. Still, undeterred and with camera in hand, Luckhardt inclines that little bit further, determined to capture the perfect shot."

Urban explorer Chris Luckhardt and two friends donned gas masks and stole into abandoned Japanese theme park Nara Dreamland to scale its roller coaster and see its other crumbling former attractions.

Scrolling through that article was painful. I think there were more ads than sentences coupled with an ad bar at the top and a social sharing bar at the bottom and there was very little room for actual content.

"One night, shortly after the events of 9/11, I asked my father about the potential lasting effects of the terrorist attack. We had a long, wide-ranging conversation touching on the topics of war, politics, economics, and even our immediate and extended family history. As the conversation came to a close, I commented about its depth and how much I felt I learned from him. He summarized the conversation by stating, 'You can’t know your future without knowing your past.'”

Exploring the abandoned Nara Dreamland theme park in Japan on an April morning, in extremely foggy and damp conditions, before sunrise. I was climbing to the top of the extremely slippery 98.4ft roller coaster when I got this shot.

Honoured to be a featured guest on Sean Howard's (+passitalong) show Taking the Leap!.

Sean asks me about reconnecting with lost passions, exploring abandoned theme parks around the world, ending up on ABC News, becoming timeless, embracing silence, and how to live long and prosper.

This week I am speaking with musician, web developer and urban exploration photographer extraordinaire, Chris Luckhardt. We are talking about slowing down, finding lost passions and dealing with interests that grow beyond being hobbies. Chris outs himself in two surprising ways in this episode.
