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 […]

Waves crash on the beach in front of the hotel in Santa Cruz where Automattic recently held a company meetup.

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 […]

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 […]

Beautiful Evening in San Diego

Just a beautiful evening in San Diego

I arrived in San Diego a few hours ago and the first thing I noticed when I got into my hotel room was the amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. This doesn’t do it justice as the foreground is a little too dark but I wanted to get it uploaded with minimum fuss so here […]

Behind the scenes of the Thieving Duck

Long time readers will remember the thieving duck photo that I made in 2005. Scratch that, many people who use email, Facebook, Twitter or other social media website will be familiar with this photo. A recent post on Reddit showed me just how tired some people are of it as a meme! I would dearly […]

The Truman House

The Truman House

The Truman Show was filmed in the town of Seaside in Florida way back in 1998. Feeling old now? This is the house where they filmed interior shots of Truman’s home. You’ll recognise scenes from the film if you visit the town, but trees and bushes are a bit more overgrown now. Anyway, Automattic went […]
