I had some free time on my hands yesterday so I made a fun little animated .gif! Can’t get much shorter than a 5 second animation!
A couple of weeks ago I was burned out and wanted to get away. So, I traveled up the interstate.
The sun and light were nice enough that it was just one of those pull over and grab the tripod moments.
And of course it’s not a trip to anywhere in Washington if you don’t stop by an overcast beach.
Working and learning seem to consume the vast majority of my life lately. Thankfully, a mate invited me to visit the corn maze with his family. Of course this mostly involved me wandering about with my camera.
In addition to the maze, there was also a pumpkin patch.
The brave leader and navigator for our trek through the maze was Conner the Mapholder.
Across the whole day, the most interesting thing was how people interacted with the maze and each other. From the group (in their 30′s) loudly complaining from the center of the maze that it was to easy or the family laughing every time they walked in a circle, almost everyone interacted differently.
In many cases people had begun husking the corn while in the maze, only to stop and leave it half exposed soon as they realized that it had hairs or was’t ripe. With the kernels ripe for picking the crows or other birds would swoop in an finish what people had left.
I love my roommate and his girlfriend. They always smile and run along with whatever every time I get a wild hair up my butt and want to make something!
We just beat a huge thunder and lightning down pour as well!
Life has gotten busy. There aren’t enough hours in the day to be able to create enough material of the type that I like to put up here. But! I actively doodle almost everyday as I’m at work. Here’s a neat fact about me. I’m left handed, but I draw on the computer with my right hand. So most days at work I’ll have my mouse in my right hand and a pen to take notes and draw in my left. With all this in mind, I decided to create a dumping ground for doodles. So for here I’ll introduce,
So in short, most likely every day, I’ll be able to just dump doodles from where ever I am to there!
I’ll still post here as much as possible as well, hopefully more than I have been able to lately certainly!
Hokay! Ta ta for now!
Here’s the first of many fun nuggets of joy from last weekends backpacking trip. We covered about 17 miles in three days. On Saturday I wandered off alone all day to see where it would take me. One of the places I wound up was in a huge field of flowers, ferns, blueberries, and huckleberries. The oddity being that it was on a 45 degree slope. When in this situation on the decent there are two ways to get hike down it. You can look for difficult footing and make your way carefully, OOooorrrr you can slide on your butt like a madman!
is what this little fish would say if it could talk and knew English.
Just on a lighter note.
Keeping track of time is difficult. It feels like the last couple of months have gone by in just a couple of days.
I’ve been fond of time lapse for a long time, but I’m seeing so many other ways to portray the passing of time. As it becomes harder to keep track of time, it’s also becoming more interesting on how it can be portrayed.
I’m coming to the close of my first weekend in a couple months. After so much time of being so busy every day, I was looking forward to having time to relax. Turns out, I just get antsy and start working on things.
I’ve been busy, but I’ve gained some new tricks and skills. Super busy. 7 days and 70 some hours a week busy.
The upside is now I have a solid working knowledge of tracking 3d into video! Plus all sorts of other useful stuff!
I’ll have video’s with fun 3d integration up in the next week, also a 30 second cartoon called “detective dog,” as well as some photos I’ve been sitting on for awhile.
The last month and a half in a nutshell for the curious, I got picked up by a production company to do design full time, still working weekends at the bicycle shop, and still working with all of my freelance clients to make sure they’re all covered. Out of the last 40 some days, I’ve had 2 off, the 4th of July, and the saturday following, mostly because I had to locate my stolen phone. All in all it’s been a lovely, if a little hectic time. Though, I did just put in my two weeks at the bike shop so soon I’ll be able to work on my personal projects (see: anything posted here) while the sun is still up! Cheers
On the 4th of July I set my camera up to shoot time lapse at 7:30am. It looked out across the bay taking in much of the scene. A few batteries later, I was tearing it down and going to bed. This is my 4th in a 90 second nutshell.
