Good attempt Htmb - at least you know how to do it. I'm sure your next one will slow down a bit....just leaning back in my chair till the room stops spinning You know I'm pulling your leg right? The music was just right for the abstract experience! Pleas do another one.
The setting on my camera yields about 7 seconds of video for every 60 seconds that you take. But Windows Movie Maker also has setting to speed up or slow down. And YouTube sometimes delicately mentions when you upload material "we have detected some instability in certain images; would you like us to correct the problem?" Well at least that's the translation of what YouTube tells me in French. I don't know if the English version is more direct.
I'm afraid that video will give me nightmares tonight. But the rest of the thread has given me a new insight into a different New York, most of which I had no idea existed. Thankyou for an entertaining thread and a bold try at the video, which is something I can't master.
Man is not lost, only temporarily uncertain of his position
Thank you for your sacrifice, Htmb. I too hate dept. stores, so can only imagine one that big and crowded to boot had to be jangling.
But the exterior photos! All of us here know how hard it can be to capture tall or long buildings effectively, especially when trying to combine them into a cohesive cityscape. But you have not only succeeded, you've really captured the vibrancy of the fabulous architecture of NY. Cannot tell you how much I'm enjoying this.
Looks like S will have a nice view in the Spring & summer, or even in the snowy winters.
Thanks, Bixa. I appreciate your kind words very much.
Even more photos and info which make me long to go back. I too am guilty as charged re Staten Island ferry-ie hopping on for the views and then catching the next one back. I was last there 6 years ago so now want to go back and look at my photos to see if the coastguard presence was as obvious, I certainly remember seeing them.
I had to look twice at the girls to see what they were wearing on their heads ( Staten Is pics) and then had a chuckle.
That video is great and a hoot to boot but I see what you mean about the ending, however far better than anything else I have managed.
Loving seeing it all with you- your daughter has achieved so much and I guess you are very proud of her.
I loved riding on the outside/back of the ferry (stern?). It was a perfect place for some of the pictures I took. During the first half of the ride we were inside, and it was crowded and hard to take photos.
I have improved on the video a bit.....slowed it down, polished up the ending .......but it's not enough of an improvement to warrant posting. I suspect much of my problem was in the filming, but it was fun to attempt. Maybe I'll film some of the wildlife at Paynes Prairie in the future.
I've been looking through this thread again to remind myself what I saw last spring. I'm not sure yet what I'll be doing on this next trip, but think it's safe to say I should see much more green in the city.
