A Curious Seagull

This was taken early one morning on a sunrise photowalk with Marcus. It was so early I almost slept in and had to hurry to catch up with him!

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 and guessed a long exposure might work better than an instant of time frozen by a brazen flash in the dark!

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 light is amazing and the people I was with were great.

Lots more photos to follow, but in the meantime, check out photos by Kevin, John, Krista, Marcus and Beau and when I find more I’ll link to them from here!
