I went for a run this morning and ended up with a pretty slow pace because I kept stopping to take pictures of the beautiful scenery around Stockholm. Here’s some of the snaps from that run and afterward. Amazingly, all of those photos are from an iPhone 6+. It blows me away the images you can capture with it.
I’m at the North Sea Jazz festival and it’s been really amazing seeing everyone from Robert Glasper (go Houston!) to meeting Derrick Hodge, Dr Lonnie Smith (72), Benny Golson (85!), Jason Moran (Houston!), and Jonathan Blake. Took a break today and visited the amazing restaurant De Librije from chef Jonnie Boer. Here are some pictures from that trip:
Chris Young of Chefsteps took me up in a glider while I was in Seattle and it was an amazing experience. There are some great organizations dedicated to it like the Soaring Society, and I’m planning on taking some lessons this summer, probably in the Tahoe area. The acrobatics were a blast, but my favorite was just the elegance of the more gentle flight, catching thermals and floating over the world with no engine and super-panoramic views. After gliding I met some fellow Automatticians for drinks, and Sam from Audrey.
Got to see a few of the talks including Harry Shum, Quddus Philippe, and Tony Hsieh, and got a few good pictures of Janelle Monae before my camera broke. Guest photographer: Matthew Spindler.
At the Life is Beautiful music festival in downtown Las Vegas, got to see Knocked Up Kids, Imagine Dragons, Childish Gambino, and San Francisco tech band Cover Flow.
A beautiful ceremony in the wine country, and ran into Ryan Vance and Miriam’s wedding afterward.
