Thanks to a lovely 3 day weekend last week, Friday has arrived sooner than usual. Joby has been blazing trails for a handful of years now and we were thrilled to find out that our hard work has paid off! Joby came in at #924 in Inc.’s list of the 5,000 fastest growing companies in America ( I like to say we were in the Inc 1,000).
I spotted another lovely view from the top this week with this interesting mix of acrobatics, a Gorillapod and the London Underground. It took me a little bit to figure out that this guy is actually hanging upside down from the ceiling. The combination of the devilish grin and the “time to die nerd-boy!” t-shirt make this photo particularly hilarious.
In a slightly darker frame of mind, this “War of the Worlds” poster, further explores the wonders of Gorillapods and legos. A sweet combination if I ever saw one. The dramatic red background with the ominous silhouette of the camera mounted Gorillapod makes for an amazingly human-like feeling. Too bad it looks like the Gorillapod is just as likely to eat as to talk to the lego.
Joby is pleased to be sponsoring two fantastic photography contests.
The first is the great concept called the Vancouver 12×12 which is a 35mm film photography contest where contests receive marked rolls of film with only 12 exposures. At the top of every hour, for 12 hours, a new theme is randomly drawn. Contest are then charged with finding photos that interpret and capture the theme in one single exposure. Find out more about 12X12.
The second allows you to participate by both entering and voting, so get to it! In it’s first year, Lux’s panel of serious judges help lend professionalism to a great photography contest. With judging in 4 categories; The Natural World, Bodies in Motion, The Urban Landscape and Universal Faces the competition has mass appeal and some top notch images. Entries Deadline is September 30th, so be sure to check it out.
