Garden Musings In Motion
Modern technology is absolutely incredible, isn't it? Who would have thought, 40 years ago at the beginning of the computer age, that a slim device in my pocket would become more versatile than any camera in existence at that time, would replace our entire stacks of records and tapes, would carry all our databases and records, and would manage all our communications in ways that we could never have imagined? Each of these videos captures between 1 and 2 minutes of actual time, a time span roughly equivalent to my attention span and ability to hold the camera still with only moderate fidgeting. Make sure you click on the pictures to view them in full size and majesty.
There's a second part of the experiment of course. I was going to put the still photo on this entry first, but then thought, "Hey, who not lead off with a video?" Besides learning if the videos would play in the blog, I also wanted to see what happens to the "preview" image created when some of you link my blog to yours. Will it show motion as well?
(Postscript addition; The "preview images" in links in other blogs DO show motion. Yay!)
