The Doo Dah Video

Because I’m awesome, I shot video and stills at the same time at this weekend’s Doo Dah Parade. My favorite shot is the swing dancers. There was a pickup truck leading them and playing music, so I jumped on it and shot video with my GoPro from the moving truck.

The audio is OC ReMix #2736: Donkey Kong Country ‘Percussion Hijinx’ [DK Island] by Acadia Percussion Ensemble
by David Wise, Eveline Novakovic, and Robin Beanland.  If you like it, you can also find it here: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02736

It’s some great music, so be sure to show them some love.

The Path Less Traveled

There’s a path about 200 yards from my house, and I always take the left fork to go towards town. But today, for the first time, Karen and I took the path to the right toward Ravenna. Not that it wasn’t beautiful, but the lack of landmarks means fewer interesting photos.

First Ride

FINALLY! The weather has warmed up enough that I can creep from hibernation and go biking again. And, what’s an inaugural ride without a GoPro to shoot all of the photos I can’t be bothered to stop and take myself? In retrospect, it was probably counter-intuitive to convert all of photos of the glorious, spring ride into black and white, but I feel like I had to do something to set them apart from all of the other biking pictures I post.

I’ve set a personal goal to bike 1,000 miles this year, and today’s 20 mile trek was my first step.I just hope I can keep up the momentum,
