Wooden Cities

0

James McNabb is a furniture maker, he uses a bandsaw to make these intricate city skylines out of discarded, and unusable scraps of wood.  I really like the above table.  Especially using the taller buildings as the legs.  It’s not practical for sitting around, or putting stuff under, but it does look cool. While these … Continued

Falling Sand

Here’s a cool except from my trip to Kobuk Valley National Park.  Yes, it’s been over 2 months since I’ve gotten back, but I still feel the need to share these things with you. Playing in the #sand in #kobukvalley after we #hiked up one of the #sanddunes, we rested. Some people slid down them, … Continued

Daily 360

0

The New York Times is doing one of those 365 photo projects.  Except it’s video, and it’s 360° video.  And it’s pretty cool. I am a believer in 360°, I think it will be the future.  However, we need to get the bitrate compression better for the videos.  Everything looks like crap. You can check … Continued

Planet Earth II

I never saw the first one, but this looks good.  I’m pretty amazed at some of the footage they were able to capture.  Either they had drones, or super high resolution cameras and then cropped it in very far.  It looks like a good couple of hours to waste when it premiers sometime this year … Continued

European Time-Lapse

0

Paul Richardson, a photographer from Manchester, UK took this beautifully edited series of time-lapses around Europe.  The music really adds to the experience.  I’ve seen (and made) time-lapses before, and adding music to them makes all the difference.  Adding motion to the time-lapse is another great thing.  I’m just getting started with that, it’s quite a … Continued

New Moon

The above video shows a really neat interactive art installation made of welded steel, light bulbs, and LEDs.  The purpose is to allow people to see all the phases of the moon at once.  Turning the knob below the moon turns a mirror inside the light bulb moon which in turn changes the shadow effect … Continued

Katmai

We’re at the last of my National Park’s for the Alaska trip, Katmai.  Famous for it’s bears and Brooks Falls.  However, we didn’t go to Brooks Falls though, we spent the time in the backcountry of the park looking for bears up Funnel Creek.  Unfortunately it was late in the year for that particular salmon … Continued

Colorful Coral: Time-Lapse

0

25,000 individual images shot over a year make up this beautiful time-lapse of coral moving in a way that humans couldn’t see normally.  Part of this project is to bring to light the plight that the Great Barrier Reef is undergoing due to changing climates and industrialization of the world. It’s pretty spectacular solely because … Continued

Re-creating Top Gun

0

There’s a scene in Top Gun where the jets are inverted and pictures are taken.  Naturally, it was a hit scene and people wanted to re-create it in real life.  Using the help of the Patriots Jet Team, photographer Blair Bunting fulfilled that goal. I think it’s super dangerous, but, let’s be honest, so are … Continued

Alaska Video

0

I don’t think I shared this video with y’all.  I think it’s pretty neat.  Yes it’s 5 minutes long, but there’s alot there.  And damnit, I spent more time than I should have getting the music to sync up with the video well.  So you’ll watch it, and you’ll like it, and you’ll comment on … Continued
