Cast of Characters:
• flat iron
• passing clouds
• my bedroom wall
Shot this video a little while back.
I was crunching on a work deadline over some far ago weekend while camped out on my bed (my home office desk of choice), and I noticed that the sunshine was bouncing off a flat iron that was perched on a small table nearby, making lovely reflective patterns on the wall. Add to that the passage of clouds over the face of the sun, and the effect was mesmerizing.
So I set up the video camera.
The clip stayed in the camera for some time because video import is such a huge hassle on my old Dell -- but not so on my new MacBook Pro (sexy beast. marry me.). Even exports directly to YouTube. *swoon*
Warning: This gets a bit esoteric. Lucky for you Apple and YouTube self-policed me down to a 30 second clip -- that's down from the 5 minute clip that I tried to upload, which was down from the 13 minutes that I recorded. Meter has also been stepped up considerably.
