It was a chilly evening on North Island of New Zealand. While I was on set for the upcoming Hobbiton movie, I took the above photo of Bilbo’s home. The day was falling away — and the warm lights turned on. I was transfixed. I’d spent the entire day there, starting at 5 a.m., running late into the night and beyond. We experienced a few little rainstorms all that day, and they dropped fresh, glowing rain all over the 40-plus Hobbit hole homes the production team built there. I spent some time inside Bilbo’s hole at Bag End during those times. I watched the rain fall across Hobbiton from Bilbo’s.

Jamie, it depends on where you live. I try to meet fans everywhere I go and keep folders for cities to look them up. (via +Steve Wozniak on Google+)
that man is so freakin’ COOL !
That’s Steve for you. Always kind. Just the best. When we were working on iWOZ together he’d make friends with everyone and we always had fun. And my son, then a toddler, loved his “Uncle Steve.” Still does. And Steve has good taste in photos! : )
