And the next trip is to…

…Las vegas. All flights and hotels are booked, passports are up to date and conference booked. So next month we are on our way!

Here is a small teaser from our previous trip.

Looking down the strip. On the left is the “Brooklyn Bridge”, and Paris and the Eiffel Tower on the right. The next shot is from the top of the tower.

Looking down the strip from the top of “the Eiffel Tower”. On the right is New York New York, with Excalubur and the Luxor in the behind it, and Mandalay Bay (the gold building) behind it.

Live music on the strip.

The Strip at night; Madame Tussauds on the left and the Venetian on the right, complete with the Rialto Bridge and St Marks Square.

Here be Dragons

Bingo the Dragon

My niece Cameron has a rather strange pet (well I think it is). It is a bearded dragon, probably about 15″ long, including the tail. His name is Bingo. Yes, Bingo! It reminds me of the horse that death rides, who we all know is called Binky.

Bingo does not live in Cape Town, he has a heated little house in Cameron’s room in Johannesburg, and his favourite food is silkworms.

Here are a few more pics.

Side canal in Venice

Side canel in Venice – this is one from the archives. I just found this photo from a recent trip to Venice, and it had somehow avoided being posted in the past. I think that it is worth sharing, so please enjoy.

Photoshop textures experiment, your input please

Here are a couple of old shots that I have been using to play with textures. The first is of the Colosseum in Rome, and the second of the Pantheon. Please let me know which versions you prefer; the “before” or “after” shots (just leave a comment).
