My first one came by mail quite unexpectedly, crossing the Atlantic in one of those foam envelopes. There was no special occasion to warrant it. Rather it was one of those “I was just thinking of you” gifts that was absolutely perfect for me.
It has been seven years since my first gorilla pod. The original “perfect gift” one did not survive the constant use (but lasted longer than the relationship). I’m on my fourth gorilla pod now and it is still as necessary an accessory as my camera’s battery. For my final project, I want to storify the many uses of a gorilla pod.
