One day  I was driving into the town of Cambridge when I notice a humming field of flowers and insects.  I stopped and took some video noticing the butterflies, because they stood out the most.  I wasn’t sure how I’d us the video, but today I had the idea to make a video of shifting color and texture.

I found, when I started working on it, what I had in mind didn’t happen.  Instead I noticed there were some smooth transitions that I hadn’t been able to get before.  So I moved things around, deleted some images and added others.  Suddenly the video was about waiting, and making decisions, with some smooth transitions from one frame to the next.

I can still see the color and texture video in my mind, I just have to figure out how to do it. Until then…..

    Definately captures the feeling of late summer. I love the “fabric” transition.

    oh thanks Fran, that was my favorite part. I’d like trying to do it again.

    This video really does capture the essence of waiting when a person is watching what is around them, instead of waiting with impatience and irritation.

  7. Maria says:

    Yes, Annie, there’s waiting and there’s waiting….

    Great video! I love the sound of the fabric in the wind.

  9. beautiful Maria! Often times I feel irritated waiting for the rain to stop…but I’m reminded by this video that if not for the rain I would never get to experience the beauty and life of a summer field in bloom!

    Gorgeous, loved the colors and movement. Even the sound of a car passing indicated motion, but there was the taking time to stop and take notice in the midst of going. Another important reminder to just LOOK. So much beauty all around us. Thank you for your reminders.
