One of my hobbies is photography of fungi. Here is a selection taken this November.
A comparison of two videos of the same pond. One from June 2008, and one from November 2012
This evening I went out for a meal and a drink with some colleagues. During the evening there were two birthday cakes presented to other tables, One such incident led to an anecdote.
I’m away from home at the moment, and also away from my usual video editing setup. So here’s another short video from my phone. This one is a (wobbly) “Lumiere” looking out through the bedroom window, through the conservatory to my Mum’s garden.
After driving for over four hours to get there, we spent the evening at Burseldon Brickworks where my sister-in-law was having a birthday party. One of the highlights was a local amateur Elvis.
I tried to post the video direct from my phone, but the cell coverage was so poor that it used all my phone battery and had still not finished uploading. I completed the upload the following morning, but I’m still counting it as my day 23 for Vlomo 2012.
Yesterday, my daughter Katherine watched my recent “It’s Tough” video. Here’s how she helped out!
I haven’t done a cooking video in ages, so I thought I’d give one a go for Vlomo. As I’m working on customer premises at the moment, I don’t really have time to come home and cook in the evenings, so I make use of our “crock pot” slow cooker to leave the dinner simmering for nine hours. Shame you can’t smell the aroma when I open it at the end, though. Nom!
The music is from the 2004 “Wired Creative Commons CD” – cool re-usable music!
Choosing a rose for Smokey. A sad day.
This year I’m finding it tough to find time and situations to record stuff, so here’s a bit of talking head to explain it.
For this video I borrowed my daughter’s USB microscope and recorded what it sees of some of the things to be found around my desk. Can you work out what they are?
