Trying new things

When it's dark and rainy, it's time to change gears a bit.

There were lots of seals at the boat launch again, but I couldn't really see them in photos on the first pass. One was hanging out with a heron in the light on the way back, though.

Heron and seal

The only other picture I got was a tree in a parking lot light.


The drive back isn't very far, but I wanted a dashcam video for the rain drops on the windshield.

The Instagram very looks good, but I really like the YouTube version with the playback set to 720p. I always complain when TVs have a really high frame rate and resolution, and everything looks like the news, but on the computer it's kind of neat.

Another thing that's different about that hyperlapse is that it's only 8x the normal speed to make up for the short drive. I usually use 32x, with the occasional 16x.

Later on I wanted to do something involving rain, but it wasn't hitting our windows and I didn't want it right on the camera case. I settled for a view of the steps to our deck, and like the way you can see the water evaporating/soaking into the wood. I sped up that part so it's more obvious.

While that was going, I had enough time between my main work day and our weekly conference call to run up to Marysville to watch Happy Death Day, which I'd been looking forward to. Really fun movie if you like horror comedies, even if the premise isn't exactly a new idea. They didn't have to do it, but it's funny when they acknowledge where the idea for the movie came from.

MoviePass is working out great. That's 6 movies in October so far.

    I don't even wear a watch any more, and this doesn't work anyway, but I had to have it. And I have another so I can experiment with band options.…
