Why It’s Still Worth Shooting With Film – Outside Online
Having as of late gotten into film photography interestingly since I was a youngster, this post echoes a great deal of my contemplations about close to home photography. Advanced photography is extraordinary, it makes such an extensive amount our reality conceivable (like the entirety of the photographs on HODINKEE, for instance), but at the same time it’s an altogether unique thing from film. Film is a home-prepared feast, a manual transmission, a fire produced using scratch. Certainly, film is an errand, however the outcomes appear to be quite a lot more enchanting than advanced and I love that I want to alter or correct the picture as it was caught. This piece from Outside Online works really hard of featuring the reasons that film stays accessible as well as altogether advantageous. Moderate down, build up your eye, and casing the great stuff. Long live film.

When We Were Knights – Vimeo
“You either carry on with a real life or you don’t,” says BASE jumper Matt Blank. “Our real life was one loaded up with hazard so that is the one we lived.” We’ve all likely seen YouTube clasps of BASE jumpers and their high-octane stunts, however the short film When We Were Knights provides an uncommon look into the lives these people lead while on the ground. You’ll be attracted to the energy of the BASE bouncing, yet you’ll remain for this unimaginable tale about danger, misfortune, and love.

Toulouse Becomes A Labyrinth For La Machine’s Giant Spider And Minotaur – The Atlantic
About a month prior, I had the incredible advantage of going to the city of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, with our break video group close by Mr. Jack Forster to deliver some more phenomenal content for you (coming soon). In the event that you had followed HODINKEE’s Instagram stories at that point, you perceived how we required a nearby roadtrip and archived Jaquet Droz’s robots at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire. Having never seen a real simple robot face to face, I left with the sensation of sheer interest and interest (and a dreadful vibe too). I can’t get away from the permanent impression in my psyche of a machine made as far back as the 1770’s. Quick forward to introduce day – the city of Toulouse is doing it on another level – think genuine Mad Max. The city is changed into a presentation space for an automated 50-ton minotaur just as an enormous insect to threaten and entrance its 600,000 spectators. It looks bananas. Notwithstanding the photographs, you can see them in real life here . Enjoy!

Why A Group Of Hippos Is Called A Bloat – BBC Travel
Have you at any point wondered why gatherings of creatures have such clever and relevant names? Perhaps you’ve pondered to whom’s beautiful permit we can ascribe why gatherings of lions step in prides, while geese join gaggles, and a crew of hippos make up a swell. No? Me not one or the other. I should say I actually discovered this to be a pleasant perused though.
