My brother-in-law Jan, my sister Amanda, my nephew Vijay and their dog Finnigan. And Amy. On Long Beach in Tofino, on the wild Pacific coast of Vancouver Island. This is just what I need to watch at the moment – takes me right back there. Amazing place, amazing holiday.

They didn’t know I was filming. If you quietly set up a static frame and press record, invariably it fills with beautiful movement, purely by chance. Moving snapshots.¬¨¬®‚Äö?тĆ I shot a lot of pictures like this, while I was away, instead of taking stills.¬¨¬®‚Äö?тĆ Inspired by Lumiere rules videos, but different – I like to keep the sound, to give whole new levels of atmosphere, and I like to be able to press start/stop whenever I want to rather than have to cut it off at 1 minute.

  1. Such beauty. Absolutely enchanting. A wondrous, soothing mix of visual poetics.

    Loved the silhouetted ballet, the roar of the ocean, the tender sound-scape of children playing. And of course, Finnigan’s regal pose to camera. *Sigh*
