5,000 miles and 3,000 photos later and nearly 1,000 new pals… this photomotion quest will have you reaching for your camera.

BENJAMIN JENKS LOVES PEOPLE, and with his red, white and blue headband he set out on an adventure across America to prove it. If grabbing strangers and acting cheesy are requisites for making kick ass travel videos then you can count me in. This video kicks ass and has racked up over 100,000 views in a week! on Youtube

The simplicity of the process, to take one picture at a time, makes the scale of these types of projects attainable to anybody with patience and a good idea. It only takes a second to snap a photo, but the pictures pile up pretty quickly. Before you know it you have thousands of pictures to work with. This video sets a new bar for cool photomotion antics, love that headband!

Nice work Benjamin.
