Thank you, Field Notes

Yesssssss! Another nice package showed up at my door, this time goodies from Field Notes (a DDC/Coudal product). Now let me start off by saying, I am a fairly early adapter in terms of new technologies and gadgets. I twitter from my Blackberry, and I’ve even updated my Facebook status using my Wii (just once, because I could). But there is no better feeling than jotting down ideas in a good old notebook with your favourite pen or pencil. I love it. Field Notes sent me over a stack of little notebooks. Beautifully simple packaging. Blank, lined, graph paper, several styles. Pencils, rubber bands, even a calendar. Thanks you guys, they will be put to good use!

    I find it remarkable that you receive such exciting gifts, it gives a gentleman ideas. I just recently found your very nice site and I’ve been going back over past entries and besides the above I saw the sunglasses recently and the Hush Puppies shoes not too long ago. It really makes me consider starting my own similar website in the hopes that I myself might one day receive such benefits. It would be too hard though, I figure after further thought. I have a different type of website already and that only requires a monthly update and yet still I find difficult there, so keeping on top of a site such as yours is near unimaginable.

    Anyway, to cut all my thoughts short here: your site is really great, you’re surely deserving of the gifts for all your hard work, and these Field Notes items are very nice looking, particularly the calendar.

  • oh snap, these really neat. hmm i might have to look into it.. reminds me i got to go pick up some new note books loosing space in paper…

  • Congrats on more free shiz!

  • Field notes would be great if they weren’t graph paper.

  • ^ they’re not all graph paper – they come in blank sheets, lined, or graph

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”
