A Smoke for the Road
Buenos Aires, AR

Buenos Aires is just full of motorcycles, like many other big cities.  However, the number of people riding around smoking and riding at the same time seems to be a higher ration there.

Came back home from a week long away mission to find that a mocking bird now has some cute little fledglings in her nest now.

The Fun Always Ends

I have to give this guy props; it was not a short walk back from this beach.  At least half a mile, uphill and carrying two surf boards.

Old Prague at Night
Prague, CZ

Just returned from a week and a half in Prague, CZ.  I love that city.  I have many pictures to process and cull, and this is an unfinished work (part of a much bigger cityscape) but thought I'd throw this copy out there early.  If you ever get to Prague, do make sure you wander around at night.

Thanks +Matt Thomson.  It definitely should be on the top of your visit list.  There is no one thing that says visit me, but you leave feeling very relaxed and "that was awesome" without quite knowing how to put your finger on it.  Unless you like beer, in which case you exactly where to put your finger.

Man, these things are everywhere.  Taking pictures of you.   I figured it must be fair game to take pictures back!

The Approach
Buenos Aires, AR

While walking around in Argentina the other day, I stumbled into a beautiful church.  From the outside of the building I had no idea the inside was going to be this extravagant.  I'm so glad I stepped through the doorway!  Remember, when doors open in life, always see where they lead as you may be surprised.

A Snapshot Of Time
Twin Bridges, CA, US

While walking around the other day, I came across a for-sale, boarded-up  storefront with a metal grating over the window.  Looking inside I surprised to see a couple of old cars hanging out inside.  I have to wonder: are the old cars being sold with the building??

I just had two iris pictures arrive on my doorstep yesterday, framed and beautiful so I thought I'd celebrate how awesome they look by posting another iris picture.

Story
Tagline
A photographer trapped in the body of a computer scientist. With a LOT of hobbies (amateur (ham) radio (WS6Z), geocaching, programming, and typing things in parentheses)
Introduction
Hi.  My name is Wes Hardaker, and I'm addicted to light.

I'm the owner and photographer of Captured On Earth Photography.  I'm happiest and most content when wandering the planet taking pictures of everything that my path crosses, and my photographic work reflects this: I shoot everything that moves.  And doesn't.  Feel free to browse my Google+ post history, or visit my galleries on Captured On Earth (including my most recent pictures) to see the pictures I've taken.  I generally post one a day to G+, so if you like my work please circle me and enjoy my work!

I've also been heavily involved with open source software for ages and will continue to be for ages in the future.  I spent much of desk-job time working on and promoting secured internet standards. I only wish I had endless time to accomplish all the good things I want to do that I can't find anyone to pay me to implement.

My public posts are generally photography related.  If you're interested in any of my other hobbies (ham radio, geocaching and general geekiness), please let me know so I can put you in a circle that will let you see see my posts about those topics.
