Aaron Draplin Takes On a Logo Design Challenge from lynda.com on Vimeo.
This video has been making the rounds and I love this guy so here it is.
I’ve been following Aaron Draplin for a while now, less because of his company Draplin Design, more because he designed Field Notes with Jim Coudal and because he’s my kind of guy: sensitive to minute details of design and a collector of objects as idea place markers.
I like his process and the way he shares it.
Here’s an early video I saw of him doing his thing: Aaron Draplin and the Art of the Side Hustle Part 1 and Aaron Draplin and the Art of the Side Hustle Part 2.
Flickr member aynstayn took this picture of an orange Mercedes Unimog truck in a brightly painted alley in Germany with his Sony RX100. Even if the color is amped up, the result makes the toy-like Unimog look even more toy-like and I love it.
A piece of me would love a truck like that for carrying firewood out of deep woods. My truck does the job but this would be so much cooler.
Andre D. Wagner, Photographer from abstractElements on Vimeo.
This is a very nicely done video on Brooklyn, NY based street photographer Andre D. Wagner.
This is the kind of guy I hope goes very far: he’s got all the right ideas and his work reflects both a great handle on process and a lot of trial, error, and learning. To do all of this with a wet process shows both great dedication to craft and, as he says in the film, a love of slowing things down.
I’m not a street photographer but if I ever got into it, Andre is the kind of street photographer I’d like to be.
My flickr contact James Beard took these great dusk shots at the National Theater complex in London, UK with his Canon 6D.
My flickr contact Marser posted these amazing image taken from inside Murin-an garden in Kyoto, Japan with his Ricoh GR. He’s got some of the best autumn color imagery from Japan I’ve ever seen and amazingly, it’s done with the little Ricoh GR. This is a tough exposure, looking from inside an unlit room to a bright outside.
My flickr contact eyes moto took this outstanding night/rain shot in Tokyo, Japan with a Canon 5D Mark II. Brilliant shot.
Looking north, 2014
Appalachian Trail, southwest Massachusetts.
Loren, Dave and I hiked down into Sage’s Ravine, then up onto the south ridge of Mt. Race in about four inches of snow. This is a section of the AT I maintain so we cut some downed branches blocking the trail and made a list of work we need to do in the spring.
Loren is pointing toward Sheffield, Massachusetts down in the valley where there is no snow.
No snowshoes or spikes needed and it was a perfect day. This is looking north up toward the top of Race and you can see where this picture is taken from if you check out this similar shot from last year looking the opposite way down the trail. The last white bump on the ridge is where we are in the above photograph.
Looking south, 2013
Dave even has on the same bright orange knit hat so you can’t miss him.
My Flickr contact Kevin Bjorke shot this in San Francisco with a Fuji X-T1. Fantastic.
Flickr member John Sonderman posted this great wide angle shot of the Supertree Grove in the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore with his Sony RX100 III.
Flickr member suspiciously conspicuous took this excellent landscape on the Klang River in the Doi Inthanon National Park, Thailand with his Sony RX100 III.
