A cool sketch I found from my High School years. Let me know if you have an interpretation of it, as I don't even understand it yet.

I think this is a statement all people of the world should take to heart. We are all caught in an arms race for fear of outside forces. What if nations used all that money invested in defense for gifts to the contries that appear as potential threats. What if Love and diplomacy could overcome differnces and obsticles. We would all be thriving in ways we cant imagine.

Discovered this instrumental Gem today Tracks 2 and
7 and 12 are my personal favorites. I don't normally share my music on google plus, but I absolutely had to share this, the world needs music like this. It's inspiring, tribal, other worldly, and transcendent.

The World Trade Center is back in all its 1776 foot glory!
1 World Trade reaches its final height of a symbolic 1776 feet

I was just in New York last week and I have to say, it's a pretty tall building. In fact, it's now the tallest in the western hemisphere. The design of it has definitely grown on me and I'm excited to see it completed.

Good work America :)

Glorious Real time lapse footage of our earth as seen from the International Space Station! Breathtaking! 
Flying Over the Earth at Night
Video Credit: Gateway to Astronaut Photography, +NASA; Compilation: David Peterson (+YouTube); Music: Freedom Fighters (Two Steps from Hell)

Many wonders are visible when flying over the Earth at night. A compilation of such visual spectacles was captured recently from the International Space Station (ISS) and set to rousing music. Passing below are white clouds, orange city lights, lightning flashes in thunderstorms, and dark blue seas. On the horizon is the golden haze of Earth's thin atmosphere, frequently decorated by dancing auroras as the video progresses. The green parts of auroras typically remain below the space station, but the station flies right through the red and purple auroral peaks. Solar panels of the ISS are seen around the frame edges. The ominous wave of approaching brightness at the end of each sequence is just the dawn of the sunlit half of Earth, a dawn that occurs every 90 minutes.

The water underneath the Bahamas is one place you don’t expect the traffic to be bad...

SUB Bahamas is Nassau's newest underwater activity, where visitors can have an incredible ‘scuba’ experience without the complicated training and equipment.

It’s almost as easy as riding a bike...

The best script writing I've seen in a video game Dreamfall is visually stunning, containing quality voice acting, engaging characters, paired with a beautifully memorable soundtrack, and intuitive interaction.

Would love to visit this place
Under The Supertrees || Singapore

You really gotta hand it to Singapore as they’re quickly developing a world reputation for unique and extravagant architecture. The Supertree Grove is the latest addition and all along The Gardens By The Bay, there are 18 of these supertrees, ranging from 25 to 50 meters tall. During the day they provide a nice shady canopy to sit under and at night, they come alive with a display of light and sound. 

Saying that, I’d also like to add that these things are ridiculously strange to see in person. The first time I walked through here in October with my good friends from The Landscape Hunters, I had a hard time keeping the WTF look off my face. I mean look at them, they’re giant metal trees! Really?! 

They are also very fun to photograph. :)

Technical Mumbo Jumbo

Camera: Nikon D800
Lens: 14-24 f/2.8 (Shot at 14 mm)
Tripod: RRS TVC-33 / BH-55 Ballhead / RRS L-Plate
ISO: 100 at f/8
5 Exposure Brackets (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2)

Location: Shot in Singapore - November 2012, and post-processed in Siem Reap, Cambodia - December 2012.

Hardware: 15” 2011 Macbook Pro, Wacom Intuos5 Small Tablet

Software: Lightroom, Photoshop, NIK HDR Efex Pro 2, NIK Color Efex Pro 4

Technique and Details: HDR Processing & Dynamic Blending

First, using NIK HDR Efex Pro, I blending all 5 exposure brackets together and brought the result into Photoshop. From there, I also blended in portions of a few different exposures with the HDR result to give it a more natural feel. Since there were many people in the scene, I spent a good amount of time painting them out by hand. It's during those times when I'm extra happy to own a Wacom Tablet. 

Espresso: Lavazza Rossa (I’m almost out of coffee... Scary thought)
