Some fun video and photography this weeks in Friday finds. Plus, an awesome write-up in the Chicago Tribune. I mean, who doesn’t want a little bit of “portable sunshine” with the Gorillatorch Flare?
Bike Riding Through La Defense
I love the carefree feeling of this take on a biking with a Gorillapod heading through the outskirts of Paris.
Gorillapod as Cover Girl
The Gorillapod in the background looks like it is about to slink into something a little more comfortable.
A New Take on the Holiday Roadtrip
John vs. the Minivan exhibits amazing feats of strength. I particularly like the need for somebody to survey the situation from below – or just take a minivan on the head.
What’s inside your bag?
Summing up the end of a 365/ 365 (365 photos in 365 days) flickr photographer Aaron Miller shows off his stuff. Here’s what he had to say about his stash:
My workhorse camera was the Canon 50D and I’d highly recommend it to anyone thinking about getting one. Definitely did the job for me. But the camera that I think made the difference for me was the Canon S90, which I have mounted on a little Joby tripod to the right. I carried that thing with me EVERYWHERE (along with that little tripod) and it just does a great job of taking fully manual little pics. I can’t say enough about it.
