How amazing is it that Simon Ensor asks me for the view from my long commute to work, and then later i discover the #phonar first pre-assignment (or whatever) is to do just that!
I was wondering if Jonathan Worth meant literally the journey to work, or figuratively, but i assumed that since #phonar is about photo narrative, it was literal. I did this assignment for Simon, to be honest 🙂 but it just so happened that i was asking about #phonar today and Jonathan said it starts Oct 1st, so 🙂 lucky, synergistic me (and apologies to Mark McGuire who introduced me to #phonar what feeels like ages ago and i did not heed his advice to join!)
Btw, i rarely look at the window on my commute: i am either glued to my iPad, phone or a book if in the car, or talking to someone if on the bus. Today was an exception for me.
So here is the flipagram of the iPad photos I took (too lazy to save as YouTube + worried about copyright for the music – one of my dad’s fave Paul Mauriat pieces… Eh, Simon, French composer :). [P.S. thanks to Simon Ensor for showing me that I could embed Flipagram – couldn’t do it from iPad but managed it on PC]
I wanted to actually super-impose the sound from yday’s #ds106 daily create, which is this “noises from my balcony” (it captures the street sounds better than video from the car coz the car is air-conditioned and so street noise is minimal.
Ideally, I would save the flipagram to youtube, download the soundcloud then replace the sound… But i’m too lazy 🙂 Anyone know a more efficient way? Hehe
And that’s your tourist post of the month 🙂
Oh, sthg funny. I noticed lots of police on the street today and plainclothes police (u can tell: standing on the bridge using walkie talkies?) – and i got a bit paranoid (were they worried about my photo-taking? Was I being watched? Could i get arrested? Hehe I am reading Little Brother (not finishing it fast enough, i know) – but it turns out the bridge was getting cleared so someone important could pass (guess who? There is a hint in the vid) – which made what is normally a 90-min commute at that time a 50-min breeze 🙂
