Road trip. Darwin, Northern Territory. Pretty much as far north as we can go.

Although this is not how I would render it, the image makes me remember Francis Cabrel's "Repondez-Moi" (here, originally recorded in 1981):

But the last of the fairies seeks her magic wand
My friend, the stream sleeps in a plastic bottle
The seasons have stopped at the feet of synthetic trees
There’s no one but me

"Petermann Island" for +Artistic Google's March Break theme, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Inspired by +Chryssa Kotsanidou who is checking out Svalbard, I headed the other way to Petermann Island, Antarctica. After the coldest February on record and meters of snow all up the East Coast, I am sure there are, nevertheless, photographers who want to pack up their gear and shoot (in the nicest way) penguins. With a wink at those photographers, I inserted a little HDR processing in this at the outset, but then I went painterly, thinking of those scratchboards we played with as kids. This rough treatment, thanks to Topaz Impression, reminds me just a bit of Anselm Kiefer's paintings. You may have to look at the original to make out the photographer with his big lens and the wee penguins.

Doing some research for a textured acrylic painting, I came across the Toronto Stencil Archive - Martin Reis' fun album on Flickr. He has been documenting wall art since 1999.

"Take me to the river"  for +Artistic Google's tour of rivers of the world, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Went looking for Varanasi on Google Street View, but came across this. Bangladesh is starting to get good GSV coverage. This is the River Milik in Dhaka. Looks like a destination for these rickshaws...

Musical accompaniment by Talking Heads: "Take me to the river" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anjT71N4PGM
