GREAT DEAL FOR A GREAT CAMERA
I usually don't post this sort of stuff but I saw this posted on Canon Rumors website.
B&H is currently offering the Canon t4i with it's 18-55mm IS kit lens for only $599.00. That is a pretty amazing deal for a camera of this ability. For anyone looking to start off in photography or even HDR photography I would highly recommend this camera. Not only is it awesome at shooting stills but it also has some really nice video features. Like continuous focusing while recording.

While in Bali my entourage and I were hanging out in a coffee shop having some beer and coffee. The whole coffee shop was open to the outside world so you could see everything that was going on. We also had a great view of this shrine. We were sitting about five feet from where this photo was taken, which my wife took this time. My feet hurt to bad to get up after the miles of hiking we did in our sandals. She's a little trooper though.
Off in the distance we were hearing drums and bells marching towards us. It eventually walked past the coffee shop and up into the shrine. We asked one of the women that worked there what was going on. She told us it was a post cremation ceremony. It's basically part of the Hindu Death Ritual which are many and confusing. I'm not really sure what exactly was going on but it was a nice cultural experience and made a great photo.
