NB – THIS HAS NO SOUND
I said it before, I’ll say it again. I hate technology. I’m thinking of going Amish.
I’ve tried to upload this twice yesterday/today.
I’ve been away from the internet this weekend. Shocking, but true. Just testing out the Amish thing.
Anyway, here it is. I shot it in Canada in August, in the woods along Long Beach on Vancouver Island (map/satphoto). I usually shoot a lot of still photos on holiday. This time, I shot a lot of moving snapshots, only one or two of which I’ve published so far. Basically, I just experimented with keeping the camera still and shooting a movie instead of a still. Slightly different compositions from what I’d choose for photos, but you see what I mean. I was frequently surprised by what would unfold within the frame in the minute or so I kept the camera running – plus you get the extra dimensions of moving light, and sound (though not here). Futuristic holiday snaps.
This isn’t a Lumiere, strictly speaking, because it’s not under 60 seconds long, but I’ve muted it anyway because (in this case) I wanted to leave space for you to imagine the sound of a forest on the edge of the Pacific, and to imagine what’s being said and thought.

Beautiful shadows/patches of light.
Amy really seemed to be talking to “something” ….very nice moment
Wonderful light playing against the forest floor. The eye of an artist dances in your visions Rupert. Beautiful.
That was precious. And beautiful. The light was amazing.
loved it! seemed like an old super 8mm silent movie. very nice colors and everything. very good.
this has a very artsy feel to it. I like it.
