chrome_industries One of my favorite images from my visit to Alaska. To see the northern lights in person was one of the most amazing things I have witnessed in person. Thank you to Chrome for allowing me to take over their Instagram and to share some of my photos with all of you this past couple of weeks! -Van Styles

Winners for this week's #STREETSOFCHROME photo contest will be announced this afternoon.

chrome_industries While shooting in San Francisco's Chinatown last weekend I captured this mans portrait and it made me think how much a person's stare can tell you about how much they've lived.
Since this is my last week of taking over Chrome's IG, let's run another Streets Of Chrome contest this week. Post your best street photos and tag them with #STREETSOFCHROME between now and Friday morning and I'll pick three winners to receive camera bags from Chrome on Friday afternoon. Get shooting! -Van Styles

chrome_industries Shooting film is a process I still love doing. The fact it slows you down and forces you to use your imagination when taking a photo. No way to instantly check the result. This was captured in Downtown L.A. I loved how the light was falling on this lady waiting for her bus. To me this is timeless. -Van Styles

Remember to keep your posts going with the #STREETSOFCHROME hashtag today and tomorrow for a chance to win a camera bag.
If you live in SF, there's still a couple more slots available to sign up for the street photography clinic with Van Styles at the Chrome Hub in SoMa this Saturday. You must sign-up in store so get down to 4th Street ASAP.

  •   chrome_industries @all_shall_perish We make a ton of stuff in the US. We also make stuff other places. We're pretty damn candid about it. Not leading anyone anywhere. 2w
  •   cderivan33 I just got my new shoes in the mail today and I'll just say this, the quality is ridiculous! You can even feel it in the laces...just dope!! @chrome_industries fuck this dude^^ 2w
  •   chrome_industries Glad you like em! @cderivan33 Everyone is always entitled to make whatever purchasing decisions they want, we just want them to be informed. When we source, best in class quality is always our primary objective. If we can achieve the level of quality we hold standard in the States, we will...if not, we go elsewhere. We've always been honest about that. 2w

  •   kirkcol If you care so much, become an engineer. 2w
  •   philmachi @kirkcol the act of educating the masses is not in any way less valuable than the direct approach. In some cases, it's worth more. 2w
  •   kirkcol @philmachi if you mean educating the masses as in getting a degree from an institution with specialists in heat transfer and energy production, yes that is valuable. Reposting going green slogans without understanding clearly the drawbacks of different alternative forms of generation is decidedly less valuable by several orders of magnitude. If it really mattered to people we would study the topics and build solutions. But posting on social media is so much more convenient. 2w
  •   philmachi @kirkcol I see your point, honest. I just think starting discussions and reaching the masses to encourage awareness and conversations (like this one, wink wink) has a place too. Instead of shooting them down why don't we make those supposed wastes of time a place for open dialogue? That was my point. 2w

chrome_industries The days of the 6th Street Bridge in LA are numbered. During one of the final Lowrider meets there I noticed these 2 kids just hanging out & having fun. With the city scape in the background I was glad to have my camera on me to capture this moment.
Starting today, post photos on Instagram with the #STREETSOFCHROME hashtag. On Friday, I'm going to select my favorite street photos from this week and award the top three people with camera bags from Chrome. -Van Styles

chrome_industries Page,Arizona has been on my radar as a destination point for the past few years. Rather then sit back and keep acting like I'm too busy to go see it in person my friend Evidence and I decided to take a 3 day road trip out there from LA. It reminded me about the experience of just getting out and living life. -Van Styles 3w
