“If the American people think that just because they voted us into office and pay our salaries, benefits, and pensions, we are somehow obliged to listen to them, they are sorely mistaken.”

Senator McConnel

I have Googled for over an hour hoping to find the proof that this is a prank or a hoax. I was not successful :(

They mean it !

I really enjoy being on G+. I got to see so many beautiful places I probably will never have the chance to see with my own eyes. Yet I could if I jump on a plane. Yet sometimes I ask myself how these places would have been years ago.
So what if our parents would have had social media already? Well obviously they did'nt, yet the photos are out there.
So lets get them out and share a world already gone.

or the power of one Twiiter Pic

Sometimes I am really amused about the constant hunger of media for the next thing on the internet. We had Gangam Style, then came the Harlem shake and now the proclaimed new thing is Hadouken.

Already the buzz is out there:

http://www.petapixel.com/2013/03/29/faking-anime-fight-scenes-is-emerging-as-a-fun-photo-fad-in-japan/

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/29/hadouken-meme_n_2979482.html

yet all started with a single tweet from a kid in Japan 4 day ago, retweeted 8787 times : https://twitter.com/assassin3120/status/316511171349979136

so just one pic, shared enough, makes a new hype ? And reality is, it is not even new !! These fight scene staging photos are around for years already.

Want to have proof ? Below you find a picture +Wanchun Lin shot in the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan, where she travelled with some Koreans. This was taken Summer of last year.

So don't believe the hype. And media ... do a little more background check next time ;)

Tōdai-ji, Nara, Japan

Sometimes a photography cannot grasp the sheer size of the object in front of the lens. So lets give it some background.

Todai-ji Temple complex:
- built between 728 and 751
- houses a 16m (52ft) Buddha statue in the great Buddha hall
- more than 2,6 million people built the hall and the buddha
- Japan nearly bankrupted, because nearly all bronze was used for the statue (500 tons)
- the current Buddha hall (see picture) has been finished in 1709, after fire destroyed the complex twice.
- 57m long and 50 m wide
- biggest wooden building in the world up until 1998
- still biggest roofed wooden building in the world.
- 30% smaller than the initial hall

Osaka Castle, Osaka, Japan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osaka_Castle

I just returned from a 12 day trip to Japan. I have been to a lot of amazing places in the world, but hands down, this trip photographically was a dream come true. I visited Osaka, Nara and Kyoto. These are some of the oldest places in Japan. The city of Kyoto alone has 17 UN heritage sites. I am still in awe of the things I saw. So be prepared for some photos ;) I hope they can transport a little bit the beauty I have witnessed. Defiantly I will come back.

Congrats +Barry Blanchard 

Your post was used by +Mashable to explain the similarities between G+ and the "new" Facebook layout.

Welcome to the big leagues ;)

http://mashable.com/2013/03/07/facebook-google-plus/

Is Facebook the New Google+?

Facebook unveiled today a radical new look for the news feed, but it wasn't the only social network getting major buzz following the design announcement.

I am so excited. We will travel for the first time to Japan next week. I am so looking forward to photography Kyoto, especially at night. Anybody has some inside tips for places to photography away from the usual tourist track ?

If you are in the neighborhood, I would love to meet and shoot together.

My buddy +Bryan Woodward is in town again, and this time he had a very special treat for me. I was fortunate to be able to photograph some rooms in the +Google Taipei  office.

This is the auditorium on the 77th floor or the Taipei 101. Hands down this is the classroom with the best view in the world ;)

If one day +Google+  would decide to do a Nightphotography workshop, this would be the room. No need to step out of class, just turn the lights off !
