*"Ditching the Cage" *

Are you inside, or outside? 

Created by a metal artist in #Portland that I met at a street market. Looking forward to being back in quirky #Portlandia this July.

"A Picture Worth a Thousand Words"

It's not often that I'm completely blown away on my travels, but this was one of those times.

The story is so insane, I won't ruin it here.  But I'll put up the photo story this week.

Monday: #Antarctica

"Deception Island"

Oddly enough, one of the safest harbors in Antarctica is inside an active volcano.  People have been coming here for nearly 200 years now, and setting up camps and bases for the last 100.

When you look at what's left at this settlement, maybe building inside an active #volcano is a poor idea.

Sunday: #Africa

"Through the Mist"

The weather had taken a turn for the worse during our last 36 hours on Mt Meru in #Tanzania.  After a brutal but successful summit, we continued down to the bottom the following day.  

Almost at the end of our journey on the mountain, the fog was so thick in the meadows that sometimes we nearly stumbled upon giraffes only meters away.  Without a guide, there would have been no way we would have made it out.

"Long Days, Long Shadows"

I've never been big on beaches, but then there's New Zealand.  Sure, the water is bitterly cold, but I braved it (and the wind) to walk up and down this beach near #Opitiki a few nights in a row.

"Suomenlinna Skies"

Suomenlinna, the "Gibraltar of the North" is a short ferry ride away from Helsinki, #Finland.  Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 for its unique European Architecture, this great sea fortress was originally built in the mid 18th century by the Swedish.

And now, an easy ferry ride from #Helsinki.

I want to be in Grenada shooting this next year.
 
Hello Semana Santa!
It's holy week in Spain and for the next 7 days there will be processions like this in all the city of Granada.
It's interesting to see how freaked out Americans are when they see these guys, but at the same time it's so normal and it's a pride in Spain.
I guess they have different associations.

Taken with a #nexus5 and edited in #snapseed.

"Bike in the Courtyard"

I did a lot of wandering around the streets of Buenos Aires while calling it home in 2010/2011.  

On this day, I wandered into a little courtyard dotted with small residences.  The first lady who saw me and my camera was very sweet (particularly when it came to my poor Spanish).  Shortly afterward, another lady wasn't so keen, and used her angry Spanish to scare me away.

"Surreal Globes"
 
The theme I approached my first trip to Costa Brava in the northern part of Spain was "#surreal."  I had been inspired by the work of #Dali, and wanted to find my own way with it.

So I dove in with my tools.  This shot is in false IR color straight from my modified camera, with a lens bent to blur.

Horrible sound system. Any musician / act who cares what their fans hear should make sure their management never books this place.

A great place to stay for absurdly expensive internet access and squeaky dorm beds.
