Bruton Stroube Studios: “Last week we hosted an open house– part of The St. Louis Egotist’s Kegs With Legs (a traveling happy hour for ad industry folk). We wanted to take the opportunity to make this into something memorable, so we brought in a Phantom Miro and let folks run wild with it cranking away at 1500fps. The following is a compilation of what those folks got into in about 5 hours with the booth… Oh, and we had 11 kegs of beer to fuel the mayhem.”

I think this bridge fire along the Colorado River in Lampass County, Texas, was a deliberate, controlled burn. Love the domino effect and the hanging rails.
Found this great article full of wonderful photos about how Victorian women managed to carry around various daily necessities without the benefit of pockets or large purses. (This was before either was common for women’s attire.) Women would pin a “chatelaine” to their bodices, and this beautiful, practical, totally customizable device would carry all the tiny useful accessories she may need.
Items might include a knife, scissors, tiny notebook with pen, sewing supplies like a needle case, thimble, pincushion, safety pins, and tape measure, or a thermometer, whistle, coinpurse, vinaigrette (holds smelling salts), perfume bottle, pocketwatch, or keys.
I actually have a much less beautiful but equally practical “chatelaine,” but I don’t pin it to my hip. It lives in my purse, and you’d be surprised how often some of these items come in handy. Others are more for those “you never know” moments.
On right, clockwise from top: measuring tape (3′), mini eyeglass screwdrivers (regular and Phillips), bat-shaped bottle opener (sure, there’s one on the Swiss Army knife, but it’s a BAT!), nail clippers with my blood bank gallon club medal, Swiss Army knife with all its awesomeness, handcuff key (cuz you never know), and a very loud British police whistle.
On the left is a separate ring for car keys, house keys, and water company key. That way if I leave the house to run pumps, I can take either car, and I don’t need to haul my purse with.
Gavin Heffernan created this gorgeous Death Valley timelapse. ”The pink aurora first makes an appearance during the star trails shot at 1:36 and later in more detail at 2:22. Since we didn’t even know auroras were POSSIBLE this far south, we did some research and learned there was a CME (Coronal Mass Eruption) solar event that night (March 17th) which likely triggered what we see.”
