Trivia (XXXIII) - Spring camera porn (i)

Gordon Coale is the gordy at gordy's camera straps. I don't know him personally but I have a great deal of respect for someone with his kind of skills and knowledge. It is craftsmanship and attention to detail which makes the difference.

I plan on showing here the two straps I bought him until now.

First one is a nice wrist strap I bought on Feb 19, 2011 for $18 including shipping. A real sweet strap. I've chosen red for both the wrapping cord and the attaching cord.

Wrist strap string
Size: Regular , Leather color: Black leather , Wrapping cord color: Red wrapping cord , Attaching cord color: Red attaching cord

Gordon Coale blog can be reached at http://gordoncoale.tumblr.com/. Gordy's camera straps are for sale here at http://gordyscamerastraps.com/ and http://gordyscamerastraps.tumblr.com/ is the place where he publishes his customer's cameras with their gordy straps.

There is even a Flickr group where gordy strap owners can put up their own pictures: Gordy Camera Strap Owners Club (here at http://www.flickr.com/groups/gordystraps/).

Fazes bem - acho os straps do Gordy de muito boa qualidade e de preco adequado - para alem deste wrist strap tenho tb um neck strap porreiro - embora possa deixar marcas em especial em camisas brancas, por ser feito de couro.

Sim, pq eu ainda nao me decidi completamente entre um e outro tipo de straps... ultimamente e' mais pescoco, mas tem dias...
