    NASCAR's doing a Pit Stop Tour this week in Manhattan. There are over a half-dozen cars spread around midtown-ish for your viewing, picture-taking, and listening pleasure. Every once-in-awhile, they fire one up and rev the engine. omg -LOUD!

    I used my new gorillapod to shoot this early this morning.

    Maps & info available here.

      They were actually the slowest cars on the street (parked). The taxis are whizzing by (25 second exposure).

      How do you like the gorillapod so far? Do you trust it to secure your camera to a tree or pole? I was thinking of picking one up.

    6. Pro-Zak 98 months ago | reply

      Tree or pole, well .... maybe. Wrapping all three legs around just the right size of vertical pole/tree can almost work, but I don't trust it. Too 'iffy'. But if you wrap two top legs around a pole/tree and use the third one as a support, it'll work fine.

      I find now that I'm using it exclusively as an extemely versatile mini-tripod, and not as some crazy hanging device.

      btw - I was in B&H last week and saw that Sunpak is re-branding the Joby.
