I wasn’t going to even bother posting this video but I put it together and my mate Bob said.
“What’s wrong with that. It is streets ahead of the Wildcam Badger footage. That was crap.”
Last night I set the Whatever, Trailcam, Dorrcam mine is the latter. I put nuts on the floor on the Badger run and all I got was a Crow eating peanuts. If I’d known all I was going to attract was a Crow I’d have used bread. Peanuts are expensive. Posh bread is cheap at 50p a loaf. Most supermarkets sell ‘Sell By’ bread for fifty pence a loaf and if you are lucky it is Hovis Wholemeal. Nothing wrong with it as far as I can tell.
I hope you find this video amusing. I found it embarrassing. Hard as it may be for you to believe, I have aspirations to be a sophisticate. I do my best whilst narrating to use my posh voice. Then I forget the camera is running and start chatting to folk wandering past. If I ever find out how to talk whilst a video is in edit mode I’ll do a posh commentary. Really posh, like the Royals? Our Queen has an appalling voice…..Prince Charles does too…Perhaps I won’t. Happen mine is okay but listening to me, I feel, a little, no, I feel a lot demeaned. I’ll just have to get used to what I sound like. I sound better than Queeny, Miiliband and Dithery. I know I do.
I had no bother at Tees Cottage, folk are interested in posh cameras not interested in relieving me of them. I spent ages explaining what I was trying to do with the Speedlite, flash, strobe. They could see the difference in the images with and without flash and I enjoy treating folk to the benefit of my ignorance. It’s a different story if I hit the middle of town. Little sods would take your shoes and socks given a quarter of a chance.
Enough procrastination Adrian. Just load the bloody video. Fine. Here it is. Have a tiddle first, I’m not responsible for laundry.
Tomorrow it’s fancy cars and Saturday I’ve borrowed a microlite flexy wing for some looky down views through the rain. I’m hopeless as a bird man so a proper bird man is taking me for a ride…Is he. He wants £95.00p/hour. Wanting and getting are disparate objectives. We will see.
The Pocket Wizards are all synced up and are working like a dream so tomorrows car shoot will be like a walk in the park. I seem to recall having heard that before.
