Study Group  - 
 
Hey All,

This is a great project! But there don't appear to be any study groups at the moment. If you are going through the Ruby Programing part of the curriculum I'd love to pair with you!
I'm in Chiang Mai, Thailand (UTC + 7).

If you reside in:
Europe - I can pair with you in your mornings.
South\North America - I can pair with you in the evenings. 
Asia\Oceania - I can pair with you any time.

I may even start a study group if there are a few people interested around one time-zone. 

 Apparently I'm what the odin project calls an  "advanced beginner". So.. who's interested?

Hey +William Wilson thanks for the response. I've requested access to that facebook group now.  if you could invite me along to your rails study session that would be great! Let me know what time it is and I'll see if I can make it work. I've already built a few rails apps (reddit & twitter clones) following tutorials so hopefully I can contribute to the group.

I was lucky enough to spend New Years at Yosemite wth a bunch of amazing photographers including,
+Thomas Hawk , +Karen Hutton , +Trey Ratcliff , +Scott Kublin , +Scott Jarvie , +Robert Scoble , +Tony Payne, +Peter Adams +Tina Ratcliff, +shirley lo and a bunch of other great people.

It was wonderful to experience the staggeringly beauty of Yosemite for the first time with such a talented and friendly group.

This shot was taken near from Glacier Point just after sunrise on the first day of 2012. It was a great start the new year!

The architectural and astronomical alignment at Chichen-Itza make it one of the great myseries of the ancient world.
Only on the summer & winter equinox, the sunlight will strike the temple steps in just the right way to create a special shadow.
This shadows slowly slithers down each step stopping at the snake head that resides at the base. Behold! The great serpent awakes from its slumber to show the astranomical and architectural mastery of the mayan civilization.

Thanks +Wendy Walker Cushing I'm glad you like it. Yes it's really hot there! Luckily I found a good way to cool off at the end of my time at this site.. diving into the cool waters of a near-bye grotto. There are plenty around there.

The alleys around the mission are a smorgasboard of street art. 'Mace' is cooking up another piece in the background.

So I moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina this week and spent the weekend exploring her charms.

San Telmo market is a microcosm which embodies everything I dreamed Buenos Aires would be.  Dancers sway deftly across cobbled streets while the sweet smell of bubbling chocolate treats mix deliciously with the sultry sounds of tango.

After +Tony Payne and I had a great night shooting 'Stars on Ice' NYE (that shot coming) I was keen to get out and try some more star trails. I had the Tunnel View Vista all to myself on this perfect night.

Stunning use of star trails!  Maybe bring up shadow detail with a graduated filter adjustment for the bottom half with a little purple shadow split toning warm highlight split tone with added clarity.

Lake Tahoe. Such an amazing place. I am hoping it will snow more up there soon as I can't wait to go snowboarding up there again. I might take a few shots too.

It's a hazardous and arduous journey when the snow is dumping down. Especially as I slide up in my overpowered, rear-wheel drive mustang. When the roads ice up, the snow falls and the crowds hit the slopes - the four hour journey can quickly morph into a 12 hour marathon.. But the harrowing journey fades away in the morning when I see the sun peak over the mountains and light up the lake.

Superb sunset. Not often you see one like this with snow in the foreground AND background. Love it.

Perched on a cliff on the central California coast, the 115-foot Pigeon Point Lighthouse has guided mariners since 1872.

When I woke up this morning I had absolutely no idea I'd be jumping out of a plane at 18'000 feet.

With an openness to throw plans away at a moments notice and a few crazy friends;there are a multitude of ways any particular day can unfold.
