This is where people live in Harajuku, Tokyo. (Tokyo is so big it has cities within cities!). It's Really hard to explain Harajuku... maybe this google search will help you! :) https://goo.gl/ehbn47

Here's the third photo from Papua New Guinea... each tribe has its own special decor made from local plants... I have no idea how they make such bright colors!

Here is a Pygmy from Papua New Guinea... what a wild and dangerous place this was... I'm really thinking about going back. It's easily one of the wildest and most unexplored places on Earth. I'd love to go on a trek through uncharted jungles and find tribes that have never been contacted before. Well, there's a high likelihood that I'd be killed immediately, so maybe not. Maybe when I have a robot doppelganger, I'll have it do that. I'll put that high on my robot doppelganger list.

This is one of my favorite streets in Lijiang, China. Not too long after I took this photo, most of the ancient town burned down, which is pretty sad! I don't know if this particular street was in the blaze or not... have not been back but I would like to go see.

I'll be stopping here on the way to our Lisbon, Portugal Photo Adventure workshop at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/lisbon-portugal-photo-adventure/ - come find out more - it's gonna be epic!

How beautiful is Dubai? I love coming here to take photos and explore the city. For this shot, I was invited through the royal family and a friend to get up onto a building that was about half a mile in the air. This allowed me to be able to shoot straight across at the Burj Khalifa. Most photos you see have it leaning inwards because it's so tall and shot with a wide angle upwards... those are cool, but so is this angle!

Here's a shot that uses my textures at https://store.stuckincustoms.com/textures-tutorial-bonus also a nice tutorial in there for you! I see there is an illegal site out there that has 30,000 downloads of my textures... that's no biggie but thanks for those of you that paid! I don't get worried about that stuff...
Today's photo comes from the from the very southern tip of the Americas. It is a bitterly cold place, even in the summer. I believe that the glaciation period is relatively recent, so the peaks are extra jagged and everything feels fresh and raw.
I can't believe there are actually people that climb this thing! It was hard enough getting myself up high enough on a distant peak to take this shot. Then again, I'm not exactly in mountain-climbing shape. I've heard the old answer to the question, "Why do you climb the mountain?" The answer is always, "Because it's there". Funny -- that is my same answer when people ask my why I DON'T want to climb the mountain.
