    Re: Various Interesting Videos

    Reminds me of the well-known Fred Dibnah, the steeple-jack whose series on TV a few years ago made him into a star. I loved watching it, he was quite a character.

      Re: Various Interesting Videos

      I didn’t really know where to post this, but stopped short of starting a “Blog”!

      It could all too easily intrude in pakarang’s Trondheim thread or Autumn assignment thread. As it’s about the weather, it could even go in chit chat zone because isn’t the weather a subject everyone chats about? Or as it’s something about videos, perhaps it belongs in this section. Maybe not with the far-out “Amazing or Unbelievable Videos” (though it is amazing), so I seem to have ended up here in “Various Interesting Videos”.

      The videos in question happen to have been made by pakarang…so I hope he will not mind that I grabbed some screen shot frames to illustrate what is SO fascinating to me that I wanted to share it with you all. At least he will see that someone spends time, a LOT of time, looking at what he has taken.

      At the end of October one year ago, pakarang made a remarkable video of an “Autumn Drive” around Trondheim with his Hero Pro camera attached to his car. This year, though somewhat earlier in the month, he has made another “Autumn Drive” along the same route. (There is a third shorter drive taken closer in date to the first, but in the first snowfall of this year that is a different story!)

      If like me you delight in pouring over maps to see exactly where places are, or have ever clicked on Google’s street view when quickly checking a location and been so hooked that hours have passed and even a mug of coffee forgotten and gone cold, then you will understand the time I spent looking at pakarang’s videos. Initially I was interested to see the route, to see where I had been myself –how a driver’s route differs from buses and walking, and the very many changes that have taken place with road works and new building construction.

      Then I got virtually lost.

      I had to return to the last known clear correlation between both videos and proceed much more slowly. It was the weather that had misled me –the contrast between trees clinging to their last leaves and somewhat melancholy greyness of 2011 and the blue sky, sunshine and glorious autumn colours of 2012. So, I’m back to musing about sense of place and a fascination with trees.

      Here are the two screen shots of the same place. Amazing isn’t it?

                  That video climbing the tower gave me the "willies". Long, long, long ago a group of us would climb buildings, towers & monuments for the thrill. Now I can barely stand to watch a video without my stomach turning. I'm not sure what that says about me now. Good or bad?

                      It probably say that you are about to be grown up.

                        The grown up came a while ago but "old" has started sending me messages. I've just gotten my first pair of bifocals. Apparently my arms are getting shorter as I age.

                          Couldn’t see a suitable place to post this in the photography section, so here it is, illustrating a Swedish photographer’s contribution to one of Adobe’s “Creative Days” events in Stockholm.
                          Imagine being so creative and so fast! The bus would have arrived and departed long before I’d come up with anything!

                            I think this "prank" is well planned in advance... the background files they have are done in advance and ready. But it is neverthless a very nice "prank" - extremely creative.
