Semanal Week 12: Snow at Easter

By , 23 March 2008 11:05 pm

All winter my children have been eagerly awaiting some snow to play in, but we didn’t have a single flake. Suddenly, on Easter Sunday we get just about enough snow to make a snowman. It began melting almost immediately, but it was fun while it lasted.

Semanal Week 11: Study

At the moment I am very busy studying for a masters degree with The Open University, so I thought I would reflect that in this week’s Semanal video. Also I have never made a videoblog with my webcam before, so that seemed like a good game, too. This, somewhat hazy, video is the result.

Music is The Pier from 1791 by Mirek Krawczyk, (cc) by-sa.

Semanal Week 10: Pruning our cherry tree

By , 13 March 2008 9:35 pm

I had no time to get out and film anything this past week, so this Semanal piece is another edit of some old footage from 2006.

When I bought my house about 15 years ago, it came with a cherry tree about as tall as my shoulder. Over the years it has grown, and now gives us a lovely crop of juicy red cherries every spring. By August 2006, though it was a bit wild and overgrown, so we hired two men to come and prune it back for us.

This video was partly filmed by me and partly by my daughter Elizabeth.

The music is from Instrumental Works by SaReGaMa, released under a (cc) by-nc-sa licence.

Semanal Week 9: I loved that camera

For the first time in my posts for the Semanal project, a traditional piece-to-camera videoblog. In this case, it’s about my Nisis DV H-10 flash-memory camera
