Jeruslam Israel Hotel Cribs Edition

Jared Polin June 13, 2014 Comments Off

It seems that everywhere I travel I like to do a CRIBS style room tour. On my recent trip to Israel there were some interesting things about the room at the Dan Boutique that I thought I should share with you. Most of those interesting things happened in the bathroom but I had to share them with you.

First off the room was much larger than the ones I stayed in in Europe. It wasn’t completely new but it did seem like it had a recent upgrade. But I am sure room tours may not be of the most interest that is why I will focus on telling you about the location.

The location was fantastic, you are a short cab ride or a 15 minute walk down to the old city. It was well worth the walk down the hill to get into the old markets and get to the western wall. It is always nice staying somewhere that is clean, modern, nice and close to the center of attention.

Now lets take a look at the bathroom. It had a nice shower cap and some strange bag for the ladies that I have never seen before. It had a half door that swung open for getting in and out of the shower which kind of made no sense. And finally, it had the largest tray for soap I have ever seen!!!

I did stay at one other place which was in Tela viv which I wish I made a tour of because it was like a little apartment. This hotel I considered to be a Rock and Roll modern place called The Diaghilev Live Art Boutique Hotel. Now this room was fantastic. A huge king sized bed, nice big modern sofas, beautiful view of the city and very very new.

Below you will be able to find some of my past cribs style edition videos. Thanks to Vibe Israel and Kinetis for making this trip happen.

How To Jump To A SPECIFIC Time On YouTube In The Description Or Comment

Jared Polin June 9, 2014 Comments Off

I could not figure out how to create timed links in my YouTube description that would allow readers to quickly jump right to that time. I thought I had to add the full link along with the time to jump to but that was taking to much time and didn’t work properly.

I did a quick search with not to much luck until I found one random video that solved my problem. I was thinking way to hard about this and it is as simple as leaving the time you want to jump to in a comment or description.

For example let’s jump to 1:12 and BOOM, it takes you right there.

If you are leaving a comment about something happening in the video at 0:59 you would just type that in and bam, you’re done.

Pretty simple stuff that I was over complicating. I hope this helps you out in your own videos and comments.

OMG! These photographers are floating on air!

I went on an incredible trip to Israel with a group of amazing photographers thanks to “Vibe Israel” and Kinetis. Each photographer was handpicked from New York to Australia and in-between, including me! Beside my buddy Jared Polin, aka FroKnowsPhoto, we were with Mike Kelley, Simon Pollock, Rebecca Litchfield and Benjamin Von Wong. Each of these folks are amazing photographers and have very unique styles and specialities. I can say that I learned so much from all of them and felt incredibly inspired by their work.

FroKnowsMovies: Please give it a shot!!!

Jared Polin June 8, 2014 Comments Off

Welcome to FroKnowsMovies staring Jared Polin (the FRO) and Todd Wolfe (the Todd). where our goal is to just say it like it is when it comes to new movies, old movies and future movies, trailers and more. Fun is the name of the game and we hope you enjoy the show.

Each week we will be reviewing a different movie either one that is in the theaters or one that is new at home. There will be different segments from “home flickr” to “coming soon” and much much more.

All I ask is that you give it a shot, if you enjoy movies I think you just might enjoy the show.

We really have a great time making these videos. To be honest it is a great way for me to relax my mind and give it a break from the Photo World. I have found that these movie episodes have helped me focus on the photo side even more.
