Hand View

Here’s the view of my physical desktop from my right hands perspective:

btw: Happy Halloween from my office window…

Steph and I do holiday treats for my bus kids every year. I buy the parts, she creates them and then I give them out. For this Halloween I’ve been holding on to thirty treats she put together a while back, and today I brought them on-board.

The girls got hold of them first so we staged a little video before the boys got on. Thirteen treats are now out the door, and the rest are on their way tomorrow.

I’ve been playing around with a video service called Magisto. You throw some photos and videos at it, and you get a tricked out video result in return. Interesting…

Contrail X

I was coming down Main street today at 1230, transporting the young lady who’s first name begins with “C” (that’s how we refer to clients over the radio now :-) out to Bates, when I spotted this double contrail. The clouds had parted perfectly to reveal this anomaly. I pointed it out to “C” and pulled over to take these shots from my window.

My sister spotted a UFO hiding in a cloud over the Grand last week. Maybe this contrail was not intended to have been seen?


Update: What the hell is that? Looks Reptillion to me…

Suite Tools

I picked up a nice suite of tools yesterday from a company called AVS. I’m running them through their paces today and I’ll throw new stuff here on the wall as the day progresses.

Here’s something I just whipped up with the Video Editor and the Audio Recorder:

A dark scene from Squirrel, Idaho:

Leaf Bust

Steph’s been complaining that the leaves are falling off the trees faster than our perfect Fall weather, with no wind, would dictate. So, I set up a hidden security camera on the deck before I headed off to do a photo-shoot of Squirrel, ID today.

Sure enough, I caught my neighbor Pete shaking the leaves off our big mama! I didn’t realize he had a yard superiority thing, poor guy. He even disguised himself as me!

Later on in the evening I was warming my small buns on our Rinnai heater when I noticed some cool lighting coming in from the westward sunset.

Little Dragon

Steph’s boss brought his son into the propane office to show off the costume she made for him. Apparently, he really loves it and want’s to wear it all the time now. She offered to hem up the bottoms but they’re just going to roll them up.

There’s a costume contest happening next week on Halloween eve at Kings. I think this boy, and Steph’s creation, could do very well.

Pond Walk

This is my first Strap the GoPro to my Tilley Hat video, shot at 960p x 60fps. I revisited one of my recent favorite spots today, (Pond Drive), and used my new Hero3+ Head Strap on a short nature walk down the non-existent Pond Drive in Victor.

Eclectic Forest

As each month dies down I gather up the various media folders that have accumulated on my desktop, and archive them. Since my new content creativity is apparently languishing in what seems to be a perpetual bad mood, probably due to oncoming snow, I’ve cruised through the folders and grabbed a few shots before archiving them to the infinite darkness of my hard drive(s).

First is a painting of an accidental shot, the others just weird remnants from the month.

Dragon Costume

Steph whipped up this Halloween Dragon Costume for her bosses young son this weekend. Very nice job! There’s an abundance of creative talent around this log home in the Rockies, and as far as points with the boss goes, well, (ding, ding, ding! :-)
