“If I can make you smile just once, well, mission accomplished.” ~ Gonzo on Spiraling Outward
If a picture is worth a thousand words a video is worth…a lot I guess. One of my hobbies is to make video “movies” for family members’ birthdays, or of us just goofing around. I don’t use sophisticated equipment. All content is created using our iPhones and iPads and movies are produced on my MacBook Pro using free software. My intent is to create a visual collection of moments and structure them in such a way as to be entertaining to others (I’m never satisfied with the final product). If I can make you smile just once, well, mission accomplished.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” ~ Elliott Erwitt
Tempo, AussieOne and I have taken a lot of travel video and pictures recently. A small amount can be found on our YouTube channel GoingGonzoRV by using this link or by searching the site title at YouTube.com. Much of the content is “raw”, with a few interesting (I hope) and edited videos thrown in. The volume of video on my hard drive has become so overwhelming though.
I like to talk. To a fault. So I can easily tell you about the beauty we have witnessed and the adventure we have experienced over the last four months. But I’d rather show you (embarrassing parts left out of course). With that in mind I decided to spend a couple of weekends and peruse the plethora of content in hopes of bringing it all together in a sort of visual diary.
Spiraling Outward – The Video is the final outcome of that effort. Thank you to OneRepublic for the use of your song “Counting Stars”, a beautiful and inspiring tune. If you listen to their words you’ll hear just a glimpse of who Tempo and I are today. I hope you enjoy it (watch it here or click on the hyperlink above for better quality viewing).
