Friend and great photographer, Sarah Renard has launch an amazing line of bags, Le Renard. Each bag is handmade in Los Angeles of individually dyed linen with all the right details, in all the right places. From the site:
Le Renard is based on a journey to the satisfaction and individuality of making something with your hands, creating a product that is intrinsically unique and ages with grace to become a better version of itself.
Each Le Renard bag is made in Los Angeles, using only natural Indigo to dye and is one-of-a-kind.
Pick one up for yourself, or that favorite person in your life.
Jay Diebel is one those photographers that I always anticipate seeing new work from. His style is honest and genuine and it always comes through in his photos. Luckily for you and me, Jay started posting his work regularly. And recently he shot the Fall 11 lookbook for Ezekiel Clothing.
A good friend of mine from Long Beach, there aren’t too many people I’d rather share some cold suds and a laugh with than Jay. His photography is an extension of his personality, honest and genuine. In other words, he’s a good guy, doing good things and that’s something I’ll always cosign to.
Stay on the up & up with his work…
On Friday, Element’s Trio video launched with it’s first part from Chad Tim Tim. What was planned to be a part for the now defunct Sole video, the footage and project were briefly shelved while a new plan and project were developed. Which evolved into Trio, three video parts, from three of Element’s best, released once a week over three weeks.
From the inception, this project saw many twists. From the original intent of the video project, to the theme, name and riders involved. There were meetings, there were talks, there were changes. And in when the whole thing was a sitting duck, Ricki “The Dude” Bedenbaugh, who was never going to give up on the project came through with the intro you see here.
It was all over after that. The project was renamed and revamped. And now here we are, 2 parts away from an amazing video.
Got to tip my hat to everyone involved.
Dammit Nike, you did it again. Another amazing commercial.
Thanks to Ryan for the tip.

Filmer extraordinaire and all time date keeper (you would not believe how this guy can recall dates of events), Ricki “The Dude” brought to my attention something which I had completely over looked when I posted this.
A few years ago, DVS had a series of commercials that are very similar this Nike spot. The series was called Echo.
