"Grado Labs in Unthinkable" - Podcast Guest

Jay Acunzo and his podcast, Unthinkable, visited Grado and we had a nice chat.

They donโ€™t advertise, not one cent. They donโ€™t upgrade much, using the same old equipment in the same old building. And they even make their headphones by hand.

So why are they such a success in the digital age?

Itโ€™s Unthinkable.

A Tough One

Grado Epoch Cartridge

It's easier to go a week without pizza than it is to get a photograph of one of our Epoch cartridges. The light needs to be just right to show the contrast between the weed and the engraving. You do what you have to do though, and after two days I got something I could live with. Back to pizza.

Stockholm, Paris, Copenhagen, and Food

Paris Day 1 Eiffel Tower Long Exposure

Though the weather might have been all over the place and we may or may not have lost our house on the outskirts of Copenhagen at 3am (long story), it was nice to have a trip just be a trip without the work prefix. Food was the deciding factor for most of the daily plans, and I'd go back to Copenhagen 5 minutes ago if I could. 

Sweden, France, and Denmark are below in no particular order.

Mentioned in Chicago Tribune Story

...Jonathan is quite an accomplished photographer. He uses an X-T2 and you can see some of his images at jonathangrado.com. As you will see, in the hands of a skilled photographer the X-T2 can create exquisite images.
— Chicago Tribune

I was just emailed a heads-up that I was included in this Chicago Tribune story on Fuji cameras and photography. I've been using a Fuji X-T1/X-T2 for the past few years for everything. While seeing some friends 50 megapixel photos blown up makes me a little envious, I've been addicted to to the nimbleness and color reproduction of my X-T2.

Update: Seems like the Tribune link has been changed a few times but this one hasn't so I'll just leave it here.
