OMG! This is huge. I told +Spider Holster ages ago that they needed to make one of these and finally! I'll be kickstartering this as soon as it's available. I need 2!
The SpiderLight Hand Strap. Help us fund our groundbreaking new hand strap for mirrorless cameras! Wait, don't you guys already make a hand strap? Yes, you're thinking of our SpiderPro Hand Strap which was specifically designed for heavier professional DSLR cameras. Our new SpiderLight Hand ...

Have you guys seen this Kickstarter?
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/le-glue/le-glue-the-water-soluble-adhesive-for-lego-blocks

I was the first to jump in! He's since added a level where you can get 6 pots of this block adhesive. I'm not affiliated. Just excited. Lee, Tripp's dad emailed me to let me know that it is thin enough to use with a brush. You may see a picture in the Kickstarter media that shows Tripp dipping the block. It's not that messy.

I love the back story

"How it began 

Thank you for viewing my project. My name is Tripp Phillips. As an aspiring inventor I started building with LEGO® blocks as far back as I can remember. Building blocks allowed me to be creative and make all kinds of silly contraptions (like inspector gadget). The only problem was my stuff always fell apart. The coolest of spaceships, moon landers, you name it, I built it. They looked really great, but I couldn’t play with them; wings would fall off, wheels rolled away, it simply drove me nuts. Super Glue or Krazy Glue® wasn’t an option as it ruined my bricks forever and bricks aren’t cheap. This was the problem of every kid in the world (and adult kids too.) I was determined to figure out a solution to overcome this problem and stop those messy breakups. My invention, Le-Glue® is the answer."

Thanks +Rajeev Cr. It was taken with an Olympus OM-D EM-10 with a 60mm macro lens. Using an off-camera wireless flash and diffusing reflector I can get some awesome results. That image is with very little editing.

Yesterday we shared a case study that covered the entire process of finding a manufacturer in China and building an online business from scratch. In just over a month, the store generated over $2,400 in revenue, sold to customers worldwide, and grew a small team of affiliates to help promote the business. Now, we’re giving that business away to one lucky entrepreneur, along with a whole bunch of extras in partnership with Shippo to help propel yo...

Just a reminder, Lego People!
This Kickstarter only has a couple days left to be successful.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/le-glue/le-glue-the-water-soluble-adhesive-for-lego-blocks

If you have models that you are especially proud of, this glue will keep them together in the best possible way!

DO IT!

It's not a bad BW shot though. Nice contrasts.

What are you doing for #WorldPhotographyDay? I'm selling my Panasonic GX7 so I can trade up to the Olympus OM-D EM5 MKII (i think) to go with my EM10.
I caught the 2-body bug this summer! No More Changing Lenses!!!

Great food and surroundings! Rooftop bar and restaurant is always busy. If you want a seat in the restaurant make sure to get to the reservation desk well in advance. They will call or text you when your seat is read an hour or two later.

Went for an exchange and while I did get my exchange I had to practically beg for it. It was an LED light bulb, marked Ikea, was current stock and not a bulb that could be bought anywhere else, they wanted a receipt. Really? Then they proceeded to tell me they would do this as a favour to me. Gee thanks. Who trained you people?
