A Child in a New Hutong
Hutongs are older, family, communal areas in China. There are thousands of them scattered all around Beijing, for example. Most are old and classical, but some of them have gone through modern renovations and are now a mix between the old and the new. This one had some trendy furniture stores, a theater, and a little coffee shop on one half while the other half was still old-school and classical. I saw this child resting on top of a ramp to a theater.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post on the Stuck in Customs blog.

B&W Foto
Here is one of the many interesting streets nearby the old medieval part of Ibiza Town. At first I was a little bummed out it was raining, but then I got excited because I knew it would add a certain texture to the photos. The only painful part is trying to carry around an umbrella and a camera system at the same time… a major drag!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this entry at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Walking Through the Parks in Paris
I love this park! I end up walking through it a lot because it is centrally located. It’s the Tuileries Garden and it’s located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concord. During the photowalk, I decided to set up for a shot almost straight up that considered the classically shaped light poles and the trees.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this entry at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Alien Surface
I saw this amazing place in Stuck On Earth and I simply had to visit! I mapped out my whole trip to Utah and was sure to include this. It was unclear if it was right by the side of the road or if I needed to walk. You never really know unless you read the description, and sometimes (okay, often) I am lazy. Like when I went to visit the Delicate Arch, I had no idea I had to hike for an hour in the burning summer sun to see it. That’s two hours round-trip for those of you scoring at home. Anyway, I was happy to find that this remarkable structure below was plainly visible by the side of the road… and it looked great from the from and the rear.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Mighty Walls of the Glacier
This Alaskan was a very pretty glacier to see after seeing the rather dirty glacier near Mount Cook in New Zealand! I mean, the NZ glacier was awesome because we were out in a zodiac and pretty close, but this one was so clean and blue… just exactly how you would imagine a glacier to be!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

NEX in China
Here’s another photo I took while in China when in the middle of my Sony NEX experimentation. We went to an older area in the middle of Beihei to see this ancient scene, like time had stopped hundreds of years ago… - Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

The Fields Along the Lake in Queenstown
I’m excited for everyone to come into Queenstown for the big event! This is the first place I took Curtis, Karen, and Scott after we arrived. It’s along Jack’s Point right down by the lake. It was actually one of the first time I took my truck a little bit off road too!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post on the Stuck in Customs blog.

Clouds Pulled Like Taffy
I stood on the edge of the ship as we weaved in and out of the great Alaskan fjords. This is my first time ever sailing through fjords like this (other than just one fjord in New Zealand), so it was really cool to see not only the landscape, but how the steep mountains moved and pulled the clouds into different shapes.

The Valleys on the Way to Milford Sound
There are approximately 4,000 places to stop on the drive from Te Anau to Milford, and this is one of them. It’s kind of a must-stop! The scene is crazy-powerful, and it changes throughout the day. I’ve noticed sometimes in the morning it is foggy and hard to see, but it’s still interesting even then. When planning car-trips in New Zealand, it’s best just to add a few extra hours into the experience!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Across Central Otago
One evening I was in Tekapo and considering waiting on the sunset there. I decided to drive to Pukaki to check it out, but I stopped halfway when I saw this aqua fog roll in across the fields. I ended up spending my time in this field all the way through the darkness. The fog was very deceptive because it seemed like it was moving slowly, but it did change form and shape quite a bit.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Fishing at Fuji
What’s more scenic than fishing with that amazing mountain in the background? It’s so cinematic and dramatic all the time. I can just picture these guys pulling fish out of the water and everything is in slow motion and majestic.

Another Ruined Church in Christchurch
Walking around the streets of Christchurch at night was so creepy! It was cool, because I felt totally safe, but still…so strange. There are ruined buildings everywhere and hardly anyone is around. You do absolutely feel like you are on the set of a zombie movie!I look forward to going back and getting more photos. There’s still plenty of life in the city — many pockets of lively and interesting activity, made even more lively by the weirdness of the whole scene. - Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Alone on 18
I always have weird and surreal experiences on this golf course. Firstly, of course I take my camera ll over the place along with my clubs. There is rarely anyone else on the course. Some days they have tournaments and it fills up… but it’s mostly just empty and surreal. I also listen to strange music while I roll around, taking photos, and the stopping occasionally for some golf. When I finished here on 18 one evening, I was actually the last person even around… even that awesome clubhouse there in the distance was empty…- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Karen Hutton in New Zealand
Here’s Karen taking photos in a big field near my house one evening. If you saw the landscape video tutorial on the page here, then you’ll recognize her here from this scene! It was cool to have her and Scott and so many other people on the scene… just was a perfect night of photography!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
