Bozeman

It is right there on the horizon. Lovely town of Bozeman Montana. It is probably hell cold in the winter, but it was very lovely in the middle of the summer

Dead End

Do you think they put that sign to indicate the road condition or something else?

In this case it very well could be indicating the whole situation on this specific block. The entire area have seen better times and when we were there if didn’t show any sign of business activity. The big Mill in the back was closed and will either be demolished or potentially converted into something else. It is sad to see places falling apart and and no longer functioning, but at the same time it provides some good opportunities for photography and whatever else happens around it. Cycle of life.

Friday Mystery Photo

Google Glass for Travel Bloggers?

Google is trying to position their upcoming eyewear gadget as something fashionable and for everyday and everyone use. They even going to show it in Vogue September edition on super models. I’ve been thinking about it and trying to figure out if it is something I can use in my life. As of right now the only potential use that I can see with this gadget is when I’m traveling and shooting photos – I can potentially use it to shoot some videos of where I am and what I’m doing. Of course it remains to be seen on the quality of the video, that tiny little camera will hardly produce a good quality videos, especially in potentially harsh lightning conditions. Even then I have reservations about it. While I might shoot the videos with it or some low quality photos, I might not ever use it. See, last year I bought GoPro Hero3 camera, it is small and easy to use, so I shoot a lot of little time lapses and videos with it – but I have yet to make anything out off all that shooting, I just don’t have time to do it. So if I had a Google Glass, I fear it would end up in the same bucket, I might record with it, but never end up doing anything with it. So why bother? I truly do not see myself using it for search or directions or any other nonsense stuff they want it to be used. Got other great tools with much better surface to do it.

Would you find a practical use with it? Would you care that you’d look somewhat like a dork with both of your eyes looking up in the sky when you try to look with your right eye?

Today’s Photo

I don’t think I should provide you with any clues, as it is already there. Easy one this week. Where is it?

I’ll update the post with correct location and mention anyone who got it right. Happy hunting!

Sunday update: Yep, it was an easy one. Just put “Stockyard Café” in your favorite search program and it will show that it is indeed in Bozeman Montana. Thanks for stopping by guys!

Friday Mystery Photo

I’m currently on business trip in Seattle and last night after all work was done decided to go for a “little” hike. Someone recommended to me that hike at the Mount Si has pretty awesome views. The thing I didn’t pay attention to was the length of the hike, it is four miles, straight up the mountain. My knees are still hurting. It took me two and half hours to get up there, I just made by around 8PM and had about one hour to chill and observe the scenery before sunset. Seattle was all in the clouds and I could not see it at all, but Mount Rainier was nicely visible. Some photos might be available later, not sure how it looks yet.

Anywho, today is the Friday and we have another photo, not tagged with location till sometime later. Anyone knows where this one is located?

Sunday Update: No one got this one either. This is the second photo from Bozeman Montana. Sounds like not very visited town by any of my readers.

Friday Mystery Photo

It seams like it is almost none stop raining on the East coast, but at the same time most of the West part of the country is under sever drought, not just now, but for quite some time. This week I saw some photos in the USA Today from somewhere in Texas, one from 2003, one from this year. In 2003 it showed a lake near some restaurant with bunch of people drinking right next to their big yachts, in the water. This year it showed an empty space, with no drop of water whatsoever.

I don’t think that this part (the photo below) of the country is under as big drought as down in Texas, but I think they are experiencing it too. Right under that big agricultural thingy, which I think does not actually used for its purpose anymore, is an awesome restaurant and brewery where we had some fantastic food and drinks. So what is the name of that restaurant?

btw, in case you were wondering, I took this photo from very far away place, it was taken at 400mm focal length, with Nikon 80-400 lens. This lens costs about $3,000+ if someone wants to own it. I paid a fraction of that to rent it. You can too, check out BorrowLenses on the right side, you might find there something useful as well.

Update: Looks like none of my visitors have been to Bozeman Montana and had a chance to eat at Ale Works.
