On the upper left corner you can see the Skywalk platform, and Grand Canyon on the background, and Colorado River flowing (with abysmal amounts of water) at the bottom.
We were driving somewhat aimlessly and enjoying the sights when we ended up here at the "Skywalk" !
It seemed like an interesting concept, so we got our tickets and went there ... it ended up being a very dull and unimpressive experience to be honest but the surrounding areas were great. Sitting on the edge of the canyon was WAY more exciting than going on that platform.
The people who ran the establishment also banned ANY device that could possibly take a picture including phones or even Google Glasses on the platform.
They stated that they are concerned with people dropping their cell phones or cameras and breaking the glass, they even had a metal detector gate so you won’t hide anything! Then again they were completely okay with me taking my utility knife and tripod wrench on the platform which could do MUCH more damage than say a 43gram (1.51oz) Google Glass could ever do !
If you look closely there is the guy in red on the platform with a camera, taking pictures of people so they can buy the prints later. But what if I didn’t want a picture of myself, and wanted to take a picture of the view ?! I know it's a crappy yet common practice in their industry but I only wished they won't lie about the reason they disallowed cameras on the platform instead of inconsistent and made up safety concerns, just say we are banning anything that can take a picture because if you can take a selfie yourself, you wouldn’t buy one from us !
Please forgive me for my long rant, and enjoy the view !

This is pretty much an exact replica of my bedroom (except for the posters of course). Is there anything I could change to make it better?
Just about the only time you get a break from the smog is after a good rain. I’m sure all that nonsense just ends up down on the ground and soaks slowly into the groundwater.
Anyhoo, this is the CBD (Central Business District) of Beijing. And yes, I took this with the Sony NEX-7. I’m working on that other piece I mentioned above and will put it up on the blog soon!

I Google Glass: la storia di un Flop via www.diggita.it/v.php?id=1577861
Here’s another night scene from China a few weeks ago. I’m always a sucker for these Chinese lanterns. They just always seem so authentic, even though I am sure that most of the time they are just strange anachronisms and no longer the most efficient way to light up the area. But, as far as anachronisms go, it’s one of my favorites!

A chip alternative to a rather pricy 'Google Glass' :)

Sagoy! I was walking around during a photowalk and saw this traditionally-dressed girl. She was fascinated by the Glass, so I gave her a go… it was really fun to watch her, so took a few photos along the way!

The capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) is the largest rodent in the world, and I got to meet her at BlogPaws a couple of months ago.
This was one of my first attempts at filming using the Google Glass, and I hope to film a full rescue with one of these soon... it frees up my other hand, and it may be a cool view through my eyes :-)
We'll see how it goes.
A few snaps from my trip to pick up google Glass in NYC. Leaving on my flight back to Chicago the plane banked hard which allowed me to capture this shot of City Island.
Wouldn't it be great when you could plugin directly into the internet?

One of the most obvious benefits of Google Glass is that it frees up your hands to go about your everyday tasks, but still gives you instant access to your mobile life. It’s without a doubt the most innovative piece of wearable tech on the market right now.
