There’s the easy way, and then there’s the Mast Brothers way. We decided to have our beans, from point of origin, from the Dominican Republic, from Brazil, we’re going to have them brought here by sail.
Ten years ago, Rob Forbes, the founder of Design Within Reach, visited Amsterdam. After days spent wandering the cobblestone streets, he was left with one prevailing observation: The city was dominated by bicycles.
A reported 120,000 SF residents (16 percent) regularly commute on bicycle—paltry compared to Dutch numbers. Forbes aims to change that with his newest venture, PUBLIC Bikes.
One thing to keep in mind: The Netherlands is FLAT. (3 comments)
Personally I think 2 lens kit’s are so “early” 21st century. I personally would use 4 Pentax KX’s. One in Blue, Black, White, and Red. 4 Primes, 15mm Limited(on the blue body), 21mm Limited (On the white body), 40mm Limited(on the black body), 77mm Limited(on the red body). The four bodies cost less then 1 D700 and weigh only slightly more then 1 D700 with grip. The 4 lenses weigh less then the 24-70 AFS. Need a wide shot, grab the blue one, want to walk around, grab the white or black. Portraits, grab the red body. Going for a job, well all 4 fit perfectly in a Think Tank Urban Disguise 40.
I’ve used the 35mm macro on my K-7 exclusively (for almost a year now), and though I originally thought I wanted to complement it with the 15mm, lately I’ve been thinking the 21mm is probably more my optimal focal length for APS-C (and is lighter to boot). Or another way of thinking about it: 35mm for indoors, 21mm for outdoors. (0 comments)
Looking forward to visiting 3 Fish Studios at my earliest convenience, and probably buying a print, and probably taking a class… (0 comments)
