A model poses for the camera. She was dressed warmly but I still remember it was a roasting day. How she kept her cool is beyond me! Another shot from the same day is Red Heart.

Braving Warm Waters at Seaside

2010-09-14-0404-m

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 later it was just getting too uncomfortable.

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!

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 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!

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 fashion school or something!
