With Christmas looming Three Legged Thing started to receive hundreds of emails about potential stocking fillers. So, after a little discussion there in the Chicken Shed, they’ve decided to slash the prices of their Compact System Tripods, Keith and Tim, and two of their AirHeds – the AH0 and AH2. WHILE STOCKS LAST!
What is a Travel Tripod?
A travel tripod is designed to be portable, lightweight, compact and as strong as it possibly can be, taking into consideration the constraints of the nature of their design. Three Legged Thing travel tripod systems all have counterfolding legs, that fold back on themselves through a 180 degree arc, to minimize the folded length. They have been measured against airline regulations for hand luggage, and conform to the dimensions of these to enable them for air travel.

Well folks it’s been one whole year since I began this blog. When I started SpeedDemon2 I had a vague notion of where it would lead but just like riding my motorcycle the whole thing was not about the destination; the whole purpose was the journey. When I started the blog I wanted to share my images with a wider audience and connect to other like minded folks. I didn’t know how it would happen but I knew that if I gave it a shot it would all work out.
The past twelve months have been rewarding in so many ways. I discovered other artists and photographers who shared with me their thoughts and criticism, challenged myself to become a better writer, have taken my photography to an entirely new level, gained access to photo opportunities, the list goes on.
When I start out on a motorcycle ride whether it is a month of travel across the country to a specific place, or a short ride into the city, there are so many possible routes to take that will lead to new discoveries yet still get you to the destination. Along the way I discover new vistas, see features and things that I’ve never seen before, make new friends and all the while I feel connected to the life force that surrounds me. Blogging has done that for me as well, exposing me to others who care about many of the same things I do and broadening my experience as an artist.
I have no idea where the next twelve months will take me but I am sure the journey will be filled with discovery. There will be new influences on my photography, new tools that spark new ideas, new destinations to explore, new projects to immerse myself in and most important of all there will be the journey. I hope you, my readers, will stick around and join me on this journey; I don’t know the destination yet but I am confident it will be worth the effort.
My friend Murph just posted an excellent article on his blog that I felt I should share with my readers. He is on an around the world trip on his BMW motorcycle side car rig. Murph has already been to the north pole in winter among many other feats of endurance.
His photography is both artistic and documentary and well worth exploring. I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did. If you want to help him make sure to read the last part where you can order postcards and stickers to help him with the costs of this magnificent adventure.
Think Tank Photo’s New Mirrorless Mover™ Camera Bag Collection
The folks at Think Tank Photo just announced their first camera bag collection for Mirrorless cameras, the Mirrorless Movers™. The Mirrorless Movers come in four sizes that range in size from the Mirrorless Mover 5, which fits one small size mirrorless body with a small telephoto or pancake lens attached, up to the Mirrorless Mover 30i, which fits one medium to large size mirrorless body plus two to four lenses and an iPad.
As is their design philosophy, Think Tank placed a premium on quality. The new bags utilize metal hardware instead of plastic buckles, and only high quality fabrics, YKK zippers and a new, magnetic closure. In the words of their president and lead designer Doug Murdoch, “The Mirrorless Movers offer photographers quality in their camera bags worthy of their investment in these sophisticated, expensive camera systems.”
