For me, with his video GoPro selfies, Alex Chacon, the Adventure Rider, wins the Ultimate Selfie award for 2014! Using his GoPro Hero 3+ on a pole, he shoots 360º video selfies all over the world. The video below is a compilation of some of those. It’s great fun.
Here are just 4 photos from the video. (Click to enlarge)
Lots of places in his video compilation that I would love to visit. Now, I’ve just got to figure out how he stabilized his GoPro when shooting these selfies. That image is rock solid on some seriously unbalanced moving. Hmmm…
Alex Chacon is one clever fellow, turning his fun into his business, and helping people too. Check him out at his website: The Modern Motorcycle Diaries.
By the way, that reminds me:
When Steve and I took a helicopter ride over Sedona, AZ, a teenage girl was also in the chopper. She had decided to spend her vacation money on the helicopter ride, which her parents told her was a complete waste of money. I was impressed that a girl, let alone a teenager, would want to do this. Well, I was impressed until she spent 98% of her time in the helicopter shooting selfies and texting her friends. I laugh about it now. I was horrified by it then!
