One belated BlackRapid DR-1 strap giveaway coming up….right now!

The DR-1 Double Strap is a killer two-camera strap I use constantly!

On May 26th I reviewed the DR-1 Double Strap, a killer camera strapped I used on my recent trip to Ethiopia. As part of my review, my friends and sponsor, BlackRapid, agreed to give away one of these straps to one random (and lucky!) winner.

I was supposed to announce the winner on Friday but I totally spaced it! I have been traveling a lot and sometimes when I am on the road I seem to lose track of space and time, which was what happened to me last week.

Anyway, a winner has been chosen at random and the winner is (drum roll please)…..Tim Cowley! I am confident Tim will love this strap as much as I do if not more!

I want to say thanks again to my friends at BlackRapid for not only making amazing photography gear but also being willing to be bless my readers with free gear every once in a while!

February 2012 Wallpaper and a Thinktank Photo Streetwalker giveaway!

I have been meaning to get this wallpaper up for a couple of weeks, but have felt more inclined to write about other things. Nevertheless, I finally decided to just bite the bullet, so here it is.

I made this image early one morning in Varanasi, India while I was teaching the NGO staff I was working with to single out simple frames amidst the constant chaos and complexity of places like Varanasi, India. Enjoy!
