Tarted up with Funny Photo Maker.
The basic image is from Mount Keira Road looking towards Mount Keira in the recent 40C+ heat.
On a hot summer morning. Renderings as water colour and oils by FotoSketcher.
A calendar for the month, AND a view of Wollongong City Beach a few days back. Today is a little duller, but…
Mount Keira Road this morning.
Effects by FotoSketcher.
From the first sequence, 18 minutes of video clips. This still is of North Wollongong Beach.
And that may be the cover. The whole thing in three sections runs to 90 minutes. Using my raw HD footage led to a 4Gig monster which took three to four hours to “cook” one copy. Practicality has led me to back off HD and downsize to avi files. These look not too bad, even on a big screen, and the sound track doesn’t suffer.
Meanwhile, another self-portrait. BTW, I don’t appear at all in the above vid until right near the end. After all, it’s about what I have seen and heard during the year, rather than about me. The Gong looks even more fantastic and fun-filled than it really is, seeing I removed all the pics of grass growing or paint drying! And you will be pleased to know that views from my window are minimal this time…
And that is really to tell you about the book, which is one of life’s joys at the moment. More about that on Neil’s Final Decade later on. This blog and that will stop mirroring each other now my great dvd project is done.
West Wollongong looking towards Mount Kembla, 1 November. Now to fiddle…
