Deck & Pond

a little piece made to practice some time lapse and play with my (then new) Atlas slider from Cinevate.



Red Letter Day - March 1st is St. David's Day

Flag of Wales

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi (St David's Day) is tomorrow (Saturday March 1st )
It's the national Holiday of Wales,  sort of like Canada Day,  or I guess Wales Day. 

Wiki link with history and current info
Link to Recipes for St David's Day   
I was going to link to some Welsh  beer at the LCBO but couldn't find any.

Below are Daffodils & Leeks & symbols of wales,  & 'Cawl'  a type of welsh soup or stew.

March will have quite a few more Red Letter Day's, so stay tuned.

Pic Of the Day - Snowed In

Today we have a bit of a tourist photo. It's taken from River Road (Niagara Falls Ontario) looking down to the bottom of the gorge on the lower Niagara River (the river AFTER it goes over the falls). Being in a 56M gorge more snow & ice accumulate than above and give you geat views like this even when the streets are clean and the sun is out "up top".

Pic Of te Day - Shed


Another photo I've been hanging onto since fall. 
I like the texture on the roof and the patterens on the paint,  the combination of light & shadow doesn't hurt either.

Finally! - The next part of TnT's Wedding Video


We have finally posted the (1st real section) of Tiffany & Tylers wedding rehearsal.   It's got a stylized 8mm film or 'Home movie' look. 

I'm working on the post production of the actual ceremony section that will have a more traditional/romantic wedding look to it.

I'd like to say it will be up very soon... but it will be up as soon as it is finished. 

Here are the Links.

Graphiti (another old video)

This one is even older than the last one.  It's one of the first things I ever
