Braving Warm Waters at Seaside

Seaside, the town where The Truman Show was filmed is in Florida. Automattic held a Grand Meetup there in 2010. It was so warm and humid during the day that I rarely went out. We went for a photowalk at 7:30am one morning before the heat got unbearable. By the time we finished an hour […]

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

Fire Dancers in Santa Cruz

One from a few months back. Automattic held their annual grand meetup in California this year and we split our time between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. On our final night in Santa Cruz there was a small party for everyone and fire dancers appeared to entertain us. I was across the poll from them […]

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

Early morning Santa Cruz Wharf

This was the view from my hotel room at The Dream Inn, Santa Cruz last week. Seems like a million miles away now, but in fact it’s only about, oh, maybe six thousand miles. Anyway, I was there with the almost all of Automattic for our annual meetup. It’s a fabulous location, the early morning […]

Red Heart

Red Heart

A model walks down a catwalk in Union Square, San Francisco, July 27th 2007. I was in the city with Automattic and we stayed in a nearby hotel so Union Square was a good spot to get photos. Can’t remember what occasion this fashion show was on for. I think it may have been some […]

The Camel Riders

The Camel Riders

Here’s Lenny, Kevin and Eoin (l-r) of Polldaddy fame riding on camels in Marrakesh, Morocco a few weeks ago. The ride was through wasteland adjoining a rich neighbourhood of Marrakesh where celebrities have their homes. When you hear that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in town they’re not staying in the Medina, that’s for […]

Marrakesh Rooftops

Marrakesh Rooftop City

A view of some nearby rooftops and a stunning sunset over Marrakesh, Morocco. In black and white I know, but I have a few more shots of the same sky coming! This was shot from Riad O2 in the city where Polldaddy recently stayed. In the Medina many (most?) of the houses are jam packed […]

Traffic in Marrakesh

Four legged Traffic in Marrakesh

I’m here in Marrakesh, Morocco with the rest of Polldaddy for a week. This photo of a man on a donkey and cart was taken on the streets of the medina during a lull in traffic. After driving here I’m quite certain you could handle driving anywhere as buses, cars, vans, motorbikes and bicycles jostle […]

Roadster Wheel

Detail from the wheel of a VW Beetle parked in an iron smith’s yard in Oracle, Arizona. This was taken in 2008 when Automattic visited there and I have quite a few other photos from that visit to show you, if I ever get around to working on them that is! This was taken with […]

The Old Green Car

The Old Green Car

Not an old car but ye olde styled as was the fashion a couple of years ago. Stands out against more modern vehicles of course. Aperture ƒ/16 Camera Canon EOS 40D Focal length 48mm ISO 400 Shutter speed 1/400s
