Playing Catch-up: YouTube And Flickr

Apparently I had no posts this week…fail! Here’s a double or nothing special. Something from YouTube and something from Flickr.

First a little test video using a HobbyKing ‘Wing Camera’ that I will be using to do some race cam type videos for Living Room Raceway.

And from my Flickr Photostream some of my light painting as I promised a while ago. More light painting to come with as I make some light painting tools.

Flickr Friday – Taiwan Roundabout

Despite the obvious American influences they do have a penchant for roundabouts in Taiwan. This picture is in my Flickr favorites and the photographer is user ‘freedom791003‘.

Flickr Friday – Alana Blanchard’s Bottom Turn

The post title works on at least two levels! But seriously I wanted to go to the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach this year but it didn’t happen. Here’s an interesting picture from when the ASP toured down under this year taken at the Roxy Pro on the Gold Coast.

Flickr Friday – Back In Taiwan

Here is another picture from my last trip to Taiwan. There are paper lanterns everywhere in the lead up to a holiday in Taiwan and the Autumn Moon Festival was right around the corner on my last trip. I found this one hanging in a string of paper lanterns down an alley.

I was messing around with the clarity slider on this photo as I normally turn the clarity up a little, or a lot in some cases. On this image I dropped the clarity right off to -100 because I liked the effect it had.

Flickr Friday – Taiwan Beef Noodle Shop

Here is a picture of mine from a business trip I took last year to Taiwan. I spent most of my time in Tainan towards the south of the Taiwan island on that trip.

This photo was taken outside a beef noodle shop that I was told has the best beef noodles in Tainan and, in the local’s opinion, the best in Taiwan. All the cooking and dishwashing happens outside which seems a little unusual to westerners and perhaps even concerning if you are going to eat there. And I did eat there. The noodles were quite good but apparently I got the wrong ones. The dry noodles are the specialty but I had a noodle soup. No stomach issues afterwards either!

A Flickr Favorite – Taipei 101 by yameme

This is a very cool shot of Taipei 101 taken in the evening by Flickr user yameme. I found this shot while looking at picture of Taiwan on Flickr (I have been their once and enjoyed my time there) and was amazed by the color and vibrancy shown. The body of work from yameme also has many other shots from Taipei, Taiwan and east Asia which are all excellent. Check out his (or her) Flickr photostream for more.
