Sandy Carson is crowdfunding a new commuter backpack ( with Betabrand) for cyclists, photographers, and beer entusiasts.

“I consider this the ultimate bag for a cycling photographer, city commuter, or all-terrain weekend warrior. It serves the photographer, the commuter and those who want to be adventurous and get lost or party in the woods far away from the civilized world. Most professional photographers own two or three camera bags, but most of us want a bag that can easily hold a basic film or digital SLR, laptop, some personal belongings, and a few accessories. Finding a bag that is comfortable to ride with is the main issue and this bag is meant to solve that problem.”

I can’t stop laughing at the photo above. I’m currently that guy in a coffee shop laughing by himself in the corner.

Q&A : Sandy Carson / Paradise Has Relocated

Sandy Carson has put together a book documenting the aftermath of Hurricane Ike in Galveston, TX. The project was roughly 2 years in the making, and the resulting photographs are as eye-opening/shocking/wild as you can imagine. You can preview and buy the book HERE.

In addition, there will also be an art show at Okay Mountain on October 23rd, in Austin, TX. Hit that up if you can.

This project sounded interesting to me, so I threw Sandy some questions about it. Click below to check that out.
