Watching Sea Lions

Watching Sea Lions

Watching people watching Sea Lions. This image was shot on one of the many stops the Stray Bus made on my tour of New Zealand. Below the observation deck are many sea lions hanging out on the rocks doing what sea lions do.

If you are thinking of visiting New Zealand I suggest doing the Stray Bus tour. It’s a hop on hop off bus so you can get off anytime if you want to stay longer in a specific place. When I did the tour I extended my time in Queenstown to 6 nights to better enjoy what that city has to offer. If you are interested in doing the bus tour let me know and I can give you a promo code to use. Due to terms with Stray Bus I can’t post the promo code directly in this article.

Coming up soon I am going to start posting some videos of me showing how I edit the images I work on. Stay tuned.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
