An Open Air Lounge in Kuala Lumpur

    Newer Older

    If you want to see how I made this photo, you can visit the HDR Tutorial. It may show you some new tricks!

    Isn't this place awesome? It's a bar on top of a roof of the Trader's Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. It looks out across the new skyline at the Petronas Towers. Malaysia is a pretty hot and humid country, so sometimes it's not quite so comfy to sit outside. I don't like to sit outside in muggy conditions... I just don't. I remember that I played indoor soccer there in Kuala Lumpur on another night and it was one of my top 10 sweaty nights. Afterward, the only way to cool off was to drink about 128 oz of iced carrot-milk. That doesn't sound very good, but it is.

    Also, I've gotten a few questions about how to make those videos. I use Screenflow, and I I have a little review there along with a video. It's a great program -- only for the Mac, I'm afraid... but very cool and fun to use.

    In completely unrelated news (if you follow my Twitter, you already get these little life-tidbits), my 3-year old daughter Isabella will no longer sleep alone because she is scared of the Burger King after she saw this commercial. BTW, I try to keep my tweets about 33% inspirational art finds from other artists, 34% interesting life tid-bits (and no, I don't tweet when I am standing in line at a coffee shop), and 33% links to new works/projects of my own.
