    Mega-Photowalk During SXSW?
    Yes, I am thinking about putting one together based on a series of very enthusiastic requests! I don't have anything formally planned yet, but some pieces are coming together. I know we have people coming to Austin for SXSW from all over the world. If we hold it, it will be around sunset on Sunday evening, March 14. Pencil that in...
    Daily Photo - The Beautiful Airport in Kuala Lumpur
    Ahhhh... Asian airports. I really love them. They all remind me, for some reason, of these clean-white scenes from the beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The architecture in these places is inspired and the textures are impeccably chosen. I literally cannot help myself from taking photos. Whenever I walk through them and I compose a scene with my eyes, I am compelled to get out my camera and tripod and shoot away.

    And yes -- this is a common question I get on Twitter and all over the place. I always carry my tripod on the plane. I've never had a problem except for one international flight, when they told me it was a few inches too long. Now, this might have been a fluke because I have a big tripod. I'm just sayin'.

      Look for a band called the Melismatics, who are playing SXSW this year. They are from Minneapolis and they are terrific.

      Excellent image as always!

      I've opted to dissasemble and pack my tripod. The National Guard in Madrid always gives me problems! I'm 5'3" 115 lbs and they say I could use it as a weapon, hahaha! Thanks! I guess...
