Oh April….

April has been a busy, interesting, eye-opening, frustrating, educational and a few other adjectives that I really don’t want to share on the web kind of month.

Going On A Heist, A VW Art Heist

Remember few months back there was a VW Jetta GLI commercial that was made using both a motion and a long exposure stills camera? Well, the good people at VW used the pictures from this innovative commercial and came up with a fun social experiment called the “VW Art Heist”.
