So I got a Phantom 2 for Christmas...
Santa must have mixed up his lists and decided I was good last year.
As a photographer and a pilot, I've been intrigued by these DJI drones for a while now as a way of getting into aerial photography, at least for fun if nothing else.
I'm not going to write a review of the Phantom 2, there are like a million of those online already. My setuo is pretty basic, I got the model with the Zenmuse gimbal to which I attach my GoPro Hero+3. No FPV system yet, though after playing around with this thing I am DEFINITELY looking at upgrading to an FPV system in the future!
So below is a video I shot flying around our house here in Sweden. We live in the little house featured prominently in the vid, not in the giant mansion! The buildings in the background are stables and a riding school. My wife loves horses and used to ride Dressage, so she has found pretty much the PERFECT house for her. If I can get them to install an airstrip too, we may never leave!
This is a re-posting of an article written by Henry Rollins, Musician, Writer, Journalist, Actor, Publisher, Activist and Spoken Word Artist....all in all he's a pretty busy guy!
I first read this years ago. I don't remember where exactly, but I do remember these words leaving a lasting impression.
I believe that the definition of definition is reinvention.
To not be like you parents.
To not be like your friends.
To be yourself.
Hello all. Today’s post is about something that we found out about our son that can have a major impact on his life. Turns out Henry has a pretty strong allergy to nuts, particularly peanuts.
When I first found out I was pretty freaked out by the news. I mean, I didn’t know much about this type of allergy other than it can be fatal. I’ll be honest….it scared the crap out of me!!
My wife decided to have him tested after he came up in quite a severe rash and swelling around his mouth and eyes while trying out new foods. The doctor ran a comprehensive allergy test panel on him and it turns out he’s very allergic to peanuts, and also has allergies to a few other things as well.
So basically this sucks. My poor little man is never going to get to enjoy Peanut Butter. Or Snickers. Or chicken satay. I mean, I guess in the grand scheme of things these aren't that important, but still!!
My brand new blog
Hello there Interwebs!
This is going to be my new experiment into the world of blogging. I've tried blogging before, but I got into it for all the wrong reasons, and as you can expect it didn't go so great. One thing I did learn from that not so successful blog is that I actually ENJOY writing, so I figured I'd have another go.
This will be my personal blog, a place where I can write about the things that are happening in my life, the things that I find interesting (and maybe others will find interesting too.), and a place where I can keep in touch with my nearest and dearest without having to post to Facebook.....urgh, Facebook!
There have been some pretty major changes in my life recently, so I figured this was the right time to start a new blog and document all the things going on in my world.
So if you're reading this blog (and you're not my mum) and you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you. Leave a comment, or hit the contact buttons...which I haven't set up yet but I will soon!
My name is Ryan, and this is my website.
