Photo: The Lonely Rock Island

Here is a new photo from a moody day here in Big Sur.  The sand was very soft and when I put my tripod down, it sank down a bit.  I would twist and turn the legs so they sank a little deeper and was more stable.   #holykaw

After hour THREE of the mega-photowalk, we came across this gal.  She said her name was "Jane Fondle," which I thought was kind of strange.  And I thought it was even more strange when she gave me a brochure and it said that she does live performances in front of children so they stay in shape.  Jane Fondle!  hehe...

Anyway, this was a tough shot... as you can probably tell...  getting HDR with movement is especially tricky -- and double-tricky when playing with light trails!   #MelbournePhotoWalk2013

Photo: Photos in Nepal for Charity - Let’s do it!

Firstly, I will say straight away that I’m paying my own way on this Nepalese adventure with +Patrick Rothfuss, and I won’t use any of the charity’s money.  100% of the money raised goes to the Heifer International!

This year, the goal is $500,000.  Last year, it hit $310,000, but this year we can blast through that!  Your $20 or $120 is quickly multiplied thanks to sweet sweet social media! :)  Donate a Flock o’ Chickens at http://goo.gl/8RXm0 

Now, who is this enigmatic +Patrick Rothfuss?  I’ve told many of you that upon reading his book “The Name of The Wind” you automatically level up as my friend.  Some of you are level 1, others are level 2.  Some are even level 3.  (But seriously, every week I get dozens of emails from people profusely thanking me for introducing them to that book.  Rothfuss is teaching us all…)

And insofar as Rothfuss is teaching us all, he is the man behind the brilliant Worldbuilders, which is a really fun way to raise money for Heifer International.  By donating, you also have the chance to win incredible prizes, especially if you are a geek.  And, if you’re not a geek, I hope you have a few geeks in your life.  We’re everywhere now, since, finally, geeks rule much of the world.  Anyway, see all the incredible prizes and more on blog’o’Rothfuss at http://blog.patrickrothfuss.com/2012/11/worldbuilders-2012/ 

There is a bonus charity auction as well, full of all kinds of geeky-goodness! http://tinyurl.com/aw85xbh 

So, when I’m in Nepal with Patrick, we’ll be taking all kinds of photos of the families you’ve affected so you can see what your money has done.  I’ll do hangouts and answer questions and take special requests!  Want to see me milk a yak?
