Ride behind me… Say Cheese! Saturday Morning Die Hards…. POV with a new view!

 

Another NYCC ride, when it should be 15° out and snowing, here in NYC this January we got 44°F instead.  Left behind the tights, balaclava and winter gloves, instead went for leg warmers, beanie and lighter gloves, none of that you will see in the video, at least not me.  Thanks again to the Harry & Co. for getting me out of bed 7am to tie on 80 mi and cross the state line four times.

Once again, the POV camera tagged along for a new view.  This week I designed a mounting bracket to hang onto my seat bag so we get faces instead of backsides.  Don’t mind the debris and water coming off my tire.  I’d considered a fender but that would have meant taking off the seat bag… and a different bracket.  Next time, I’ll just put in for a sunny day in the 70’s?  More likely, next week will be more the same but I’ll go for the helmet mount.  Without further adieu, 2.5 hours of the ride in 3 minutes, starting from Rockland Lake.

Saturday Morning Die Hards, the return: Rockland Lake back to Manhattan

    I think I love photography as much for the gadgets as the art.  Playing with open source and free 3d design and manufacturing has enabled me to play engineer and make some simple problem solvers that in the past I might have used standard grip gear for.  Of course there is no substitute for a magic arm, mafer, superclamp or cardinelli when you’re hanging a seven thousand dollar camera on something but when your camera costs just over a hundred, why not hang it on your own prototypes.

    Once again, the technical part.
