It is a pretty rare event that we get some snow in the mountains here. My brother and I made plans to head up to the hills after he got off work this evening. We made it about half way up Gibralter before we were turned around by the police. Said we would get stuck. Only in Santa Barbara…
During the day I had scouted out a place which I thought would be a good sunset view of the city. But stupid me, I forgot to actually check when the sunset was, so when I returned about 1.5 hours too early ( I thought the walk would take longer than it did) I was left sitting on top of this hill on the most uncomfortable crappy little bench that can possibly be constructed while waiting for the light to fade. And of course Wellington is a city that isn’t short on its gusty winds, so I had to resort to aerobics every few minutes to try and keep warm, with people passing by from time to time giving me slightly funny looks for my apparent eccentricities.
If I could speak Czech (though it almost looks like Latin?), perhaps it would help in my deciphering of this cool painting. It was on some old wall in the super cool town of Cesky Krumlov.
It was a busy two weeks in Japan and China. Gotta run (litterally), only a couple pics for now.
To use my usual saying: Took a stroll down to the Santa Barbara harbor to take a few pics…
Maybe a few more words: Been working on some new ways of shooting panos, or at least new to me. I’ve got a few more ideas in the works, which should come out pretty cool if I can find the right conditions/subject.

Been shooting more than ever in the last few weeks, maybe 3-4 thousand pics. I think I’ll be stuck on my computer for the next 10 years trying to edit everything.
Took a little walk along the shore of the river Warnow and decided to climb into the sky…
