Venetians Hate This Calatrava Bridge

Bag Awards!

What’s in my bag and what’s the Best Bag? I just voted, and I voted for the Peak Design Everyday Messenger that I helped design. There’s a Vote going on over on Carryology about your favorite bag. Seems to be a good voting thing because they don’t want your email or FB registration or anything. I guess they do it by IP address or something.

This video below shows my bag and what’s inside of it! You can see a full listing of what is in my bag right here.

More on Calatrava

My dad first introduced me to this radical architect… and even though what I say below is pretty critical, if you look at this Google Search on his designs, well you can see they are pretty badass!

Daily Photo – Venetians Hate This Calatrava Bridge

Yeah, I can't tell you how many people I talked to in Venice that just don't have a single good word to say about this somewhat famous (infamous?) bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava. It's pretty, yes, as you can see. But most of it is glass, and you walk on glass to get over. The glass isn't even see-through. It's just slippery as hell. And I can definitely see how it is slippery in the rain, but it must be a nightmare when it freezes. There's also countless stories of people losing control of themselves and tumbling over the side into the Venice canals!

    On the topic of bags, how do you transport your quads? I’ve taken to stuffing the phantom 3 in the top of a F-stop tilopa, its not pretty, but it works (just). Any recommendations for bags for the phantom and camera gear?

    beautiful! But I bet it is a danger 🙂

    New Yorkers aren’t too thrilled with Oculus either.

  • I have yet to come across a camera bag that I like since my bags and backpacks do double duty as both a place to put my camera gear as well as camping/EDC/”survival” type equipment. Right now when I go out my main DSLR body is packed snugly against my “Solo stove” cooker and various fire making implements.

    Currently my “go to” bag is my Condor Day Pack but it weighs several pounds empty.

  • Interesting @randydietmeyer:disqus I’ll look at that bag! 🙂

  • hmm haven’t heard of that!

  • I’m using that DJI Hard Shell backpack! 🙂
