Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3

This is a test of 2 types - first it's testing to see how blogger presents video and secondly the video itself is a test. 

I viewed a video a couple years ago and was inspired by it, it was scenes of Venice set to music.  Each was a mini-video clip of a beautiful scene with a little motion in it.  I decided I wanted to try the same thing. So when we were on Kauai last year I took a number of short videos of some pretty scenes with a small amount of movement in them - a bobbing ship, crashing waves, palm fronds blowing in the tradewinds.  I finally put them all together with some peaceful slack key Hawaiian music.  

Being that the camera was not of the standard that the Venice video was shot using, the video is slightly substandard.  But as I said:

This is only a test...

The first scene is twice as long as the rest, and there's one with a guy rowing a canoe (approx 2:45) that is only a couple secs long, otherwise I think it's very nice. Almost like it needs commentary for a "visit Kauai" commercial. :-D

I could see your beautiful video ok on the blog but get a message on the link that says I don't have some Active X such and such, don't remember. But the blog link worked just fine but I wasn't able to open full page and think that was one of the Active X problems. I love the video and think you're nuts if you think you need a better camera, you don't. The quality is just great.

I really like it... I agree with Rach the first scene is a little long compared to rest but wow! Totally awesome... some of the grass/flower scenes where there is just tiny movement were awesome!!

About Me

My photo
After 2 unsuccessful marriages I spent 12 years as a divorcee, only to fall prey to another man's wiles. We had a fun 5 years together and then he decided he wanted more freedom so once again I'm single.

So I'm freshly divorced at 57 and have 5 great kids and now 7 grandkids. My kids are still a major part of my life but I'm busy helping my aging parents on Kauai.

I've lived in California, Hawaii and Oklahoma before finally settling here in Washington. I love Washington and come back to visit family, friends and take care of my garden often but will be temporarily a resident of Kauai.

I've moved 30 times in my life (no, my parents weren't in the service, at least not since I was about 2) and finally planted roots when I got my little house that I've owned since '91.

My family are Jehovah's Witnesses, I've been one since '72.
