Here's a new photo I just finished working on from a road trip here in New Zealand. I've been working on some NZ photos lately because I'm excited that I've finally become a citizen! Well, kinda. I got the email that says I've been approved and now just waiting on the ceremony. They give me a little tree I can take back and plant in the garden... It's all very exciting! Now I'll have two passports so I feel like a spy. A lot of people ask if I'm going to give up my US Passport. No... I'm not. I'm not anti-US or anything. I would prefer if 100% of my taxes went to NZ, where I actually live. The whole tax thing is a big mess, I tell ya. I did look into it and the US Government will add up all my assets and charge me 50% for the "right" to give up my passport. It's one of those things that is completely stupid and makes me lose almost all faith in amoral governments and the way they treat their citizens.
