NoLA Rising // IYTI Holiday Art Submissions

NoLA Rising // IYTI Holiday Art Submissions

These were the recipients of my art submissions to Rex Dingler's "NoLA Rising" // "It's Yours Take It" art project held in New Orleans. The premise behind the project was simple. Someone brings a brand new toy in a box to donate to children and they get to take a piece of art with them. The toys are then donated to programs for the annual holiday distribution.

A Comforatble Kayak!! - Jackson Kayaks Coosa Angler Kayak

380 Comfortable Kayak

I stopped kayaking about four years ago due to it becoming increasingly uncomfortable. Sitting in a kayak just wasn't pleasant anymore. I was only able to paddle for about an hour before I would start cramping. So kayaking was done for me. Well through the years I've researched different kayak models hoping to find one that would possibly be more comfortable. Unfortunately kayaks are basically the same. You either sit in them or sit on top. Neither option was comfortable for me. However this past Fall I found some video clips on youtube about the Coosa Angler Kayak. It was a kayak that allowed fishermen to stand and fish, plus it had an adjustable seat that could be lowered and raised. Since the seat could be raised it appeared as though you could sit in a much more normal position than what a kayak usually allows. I immediately ordered the kayak (shown) and have had it since March. Unfortunately, the seat, albeit much more comfortable than all other kayaks was still uncomfortable (for me). So on a whim, I thought I'd try replacing the seat with a video game chair. To my surprise it fit perfectly and was completely stable. I have to admit the seat is way more comfortable than my living room sofa. Thanks to Jackson Kayak (and a simple modification) I can enjoy kayaking again. Needless to say I love the Coosa Kayak.

Slow-Motion Video Experiments with the Casio EX-FH100

30 seconds of rain drops

One minute of waves

Unfortunately it's been way too cold, rainy and windy to take the boat out so I figured the next best thing was to experiment with some slow motion video.

Videos shot at 320 frames per second with a Casio EX-FH100 Camera.
