So, I've been obviously slacking on this blog, but it will be back soon. I've been distracted for the past month by a recent purchase of a school bus that I've been renovating and am soon moving in to. At the moment I'm visiting with family and friends in Maryland, so I have a bit of time.
Breaking the monotony of my parent's house, I went for a walk to main street in my hometown via the old, now abandoned, train tracks and train yard that I used to walk through to buy candy and go fishing as a kid.
I've been thinking about videos as an alternative art form. Specifically videos that are just a fraction or a single second or so long. Sometimes when I take a photos with my point and shoot I accidently slide the dial to video and get a couple seconds of video until I realize my mistake. Looking back on those, I've come to appreciate them a lot. With no illusion of superiority, the video clip at least offers a different way to communicate a moment than the still photograph. It seems like a medium definitely worth exploring.
Anyway, here's a couple photos.
