The Look Back

I actually managed to zip through a whole bunch of pictures over the past few days to pull together my year-in-review slide show.

I went through various folders and copied the pix I wanted to share into a separate folder. Then I added all of the pictures in that directory to a slide show. The duration for each slide was three seconds with a one-second transition between images. Any idea how long the initial show was? You’ll never guess so I’ll just tell you… 19 minutes.


So I made each slide duration shorter and deleted a bunch of stuff. Now it’s just under seven minutes long.

Watch if you like. I did it mostly for myself. I know seven minutes is long. But remember, I shot over 10,300 images last year!

I hope your 2011 is going smoothly so far. I have the day off, which is awesome. Only because January 1 fell on a Saturday.

I’ll be heading down to Southern Maryland to visit with my girlfriend Carol today. It’s her birthday. We’ve been friends for more than 30 years. That’s a long time.

I’ll take my camera, of course, but won’t promise any great pictures. We’re just going to hang around the house, and she’s not a photographer-type. I’m not even sure if she owns a camera to tell you the truth.

Crazy, I know.

By the way, I did not get to test this video before I left. I decided to add audio at the last minute. So, I apologize in advance if it doesn’t work.

  1. You have off work today? You lucky dog!

    I’m rushing to work now and will watch your video later so I can savor it.

    I’m starting to understand how one can shoot a gazillion photos like you. I took my Nikon out of the box only yesterday and can’t put it down. Everything seems to offer visual opportunities!

  2. I love the video, but while watching it I was wondering why there was no music, it would had been so much better.

  3. Just had the time to enjoy your video. Wow!

    It has everything I like: gorgeous photography, nice pictures of my new friend and her family, and motorcycle-travel adventure. After watching it twice, I decided to see it again simply because I’m enjoying it so much. Thanks!

    1. Ralph, you are so sweet. I can’t believe you watch it more than once. Well, I can believe it. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog so often. It means a lot to me.

  4. Idk why, but your 2010 recap kinda made me tear up a bit (but in a happy way, not a sad way) and I wasn’t even around for most of it, lol. You did and saw so much last year! I hope 2011 is just as amazing for you.
