What a beautiful day.
I took this last night in Humboldt Park while playing kickball with friends. What a beautiful sky we've been having lately.
Instagram released an interesting new app the other day called Hyperlapse. It's a clean app, with only one button to record. I hooked up my Joby Gorillapod for iPhone to my Surly's handlebars and hoped for the best after hitting play. While the ride was very bumpy, Hyperlapse performed admirably. I chose to have it play back the video at 10x normal play speed to compress the nearly 30 minutes of video into approximately two minutes. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.
You can also get a great overview of Hyperlapse from Instagram's blog here.
Happy New Year!
I rode out to the lakefront with my buddy Jeff on Monday, June 17, 2013 and we hung out to watch the weird weather. We encountered a lot of awesome sights that day, rolling lightning clouds, rains surrounding us to the north and south but just missing us, huge waves of sand being blown in the wind and most impressively, a double rainbow. I had my iPhone 5 with me and experimented with some time lapse video using my GorillaPod, Glif+ and an app called iLapse. I also had a lot of photos taken. Check it out below.

This photo was taken on my iPhone and edited on my iPad in Snapseed (which is currently on sale for free in the App Store). It was shot from Olive Park just north of Navy Pier. Did you know Olive Park is named after Pfc. Milton L. Olive, III, the first African American to receive the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War? According to Wikipedia: "At the age of 18, Olive sacrificed his life to save others by smothering a live grenade." Terrifying.

The Tokyo International Exhibition Center (popularly called Tokyo Big Sight) is an awesome structure of four inverted pyramids raised up above Odaiba in Tokyo Bay. Really quite the structure. It towers above everything around it.
