I’m a big gear head. Ask anybody who knows me. A few years ago it was drones, but that’s just not enough anymore (at least in terms what my gear can do for me). There’s always going to be the creative intuition that one has to have to separate themselves from competition and at that point EQUIPMENT DOESN’T MATTER. The motivating factor behind getting new gear should be to take advantage of features/capabilities that your current gear can’t provide. Well, absolutely none of my gear could do this! I’m just gonna leave it there and let it speak for itself.
I swear it wasn’t political when I started. And it’s not really now, but given the general political vibe these days my intentions really wouldn’t have mattered – somebody would interpret this differently that what was ever intended. Yeah, yeah – the first amendment is right there so I suppose it is a little political. I just thought it would be a cool idea and I’ve drawn inspiration for the image from several sources that have done it previously. I actually had some political elements in it that I decided were not appropriate – just didn’t want them “junking up” the image.
