Sometimes . . .

a voice will speak up out of the mire of confusion and dissonance in which you find yourself surrounded. This editorial worked that way for me. For those who don't agree, I am surely going to hell for linking this; for those who do agree, grab on friend - here is a friendly life raft for awhile.

Sunset Cuttings Wharf Area - South Napa

Still rough beginnings. Cuts have noises that I don't want there, but can't quite avoid.

This video has first attempt with Garageband which was scary and hard and, oddly, kinda easy too. Made me feel good because Art couldn't tell I had pieced it together from Garageband pieces - that's something at least.

Not sure it fits the subject well enough . . . but it is a beginning.

Highlights of Napa Valley - Fall Colors

This weekend's new attempt with my new camera. Monopod is a lot steadier than simply hand-holding, but I've got to learn not to pan - or at least pan less.

Halloween Highlights of Napa

Early attempt with my new camera, a Sanyo Xacti HD2000. I like the idea of the pistol grip, but I'm not sure if I like the handling of it yet. I'll be posting a bunch of tests with tripods/monopods over the next few weeks. As for the Halloween video . . .

you know how 40 is the new 30?

It looks like Halloween is the new Christmas.
