Perfect day, indeed! Can I come visit you? I'll take you to tea!! xo
PS - You are quite good with the camera! Very steady and still. All my videos are so choppy....like I've been drinking, haha
Dearest Loi,Next time you are in the UK you MUST let me know. Wherever you are I will drive to meet you for tea!Trust me, most of my filming was too choppy and ended up in the bin. The secret is to slow it down, it makes the image seem more still but you can still see some shake.Glad you like :-)Dixoxo
Di my friend, the quality of cinematography is as great as your still photos! And what a treat to see where you live, in MOTION! Thank you for this tour and for breaking that wall of stillness to show us where you live. I must sound like I'm repeating myself and I am, but I wish I could do what you do with the camera, and now, with the video! And the quality of sound too....what do you do?I have missed you and not seen you around. I hope all is well! Anita
Hello Darling Anita,I will send you a long email today. Life has been so busy.Speak soon.Dixoxo
Thanks for the stroll. Fun seeing your neighborhood......and I loved the choice of music....Janey
Thanks Janey. I really enjoy doing these little movies and especially like finding the music to match.So glad you like. Should I do more?Dixoxo
Hello Dianne:You are to be hugely admired for this video which is so very professional in every respect. We are greatly impressed and somewhat in awe. How wonderful to see something of the area in which you live, and particularly to have a real sense of what your 'street' is actually like. We were intrigued by the shot of all the water pouring in from a great height and wondered where it comes from. So lovely that you have had some sunshine. Here it continues to be cold, grey and wet.
Hello Jane & Lance,How wonderful of you to share my sunny day. I must say I do love our street, always busy, always something happening. The barrage is an engineering wonder. There are two rivers flowing into the bay and very often, especially at low tide as it was when I filmed, the level of water in the bay is much higher than the Bristol Channel, therefore they have to drain the water out of the lock before boats can enter. Once the boats are in and the lock closed, they open up the other side to bring the water in the lock to the same level as the bay and then let you out. It churns up all the clay on the bottom and so we never see blue waters, always murky and interesting.Hope I explained it ok.Much love.Dixoxo
You did!! And thank you for taking the trouble. Have a wonderful weekend. xxx
How beautiful that was! I was struck by how much it looks like the shore here, though we don't have the big locks - but a working harbour bears resemblance to all working harbours, doesn't it?
Cardiff is twinned with Baltimore and was used as inspiration when the Council decided to use the bay as a public area. Up until that time it was a working dock sadly in decline. Now it's not so much a working harbour as a recreational harbour, it's wonderful. What is the name of your shore?Dixoxo
Beautiful ... so peaceful .. thanks for sharing your day with us..wishing you a fabulous week ahead..hugs, Celia M. (HHL)
Glad you found some peace within Celia, you too have a fabulous week.Much loveDixoxo
Dianne, I loved this delightful video.In spite of having easy access to Cardiff from Shropshire by train I still haven’t visited the city. You have given me the incentive to change that sorry state of affairs.
Looooove this, dear one!! LOVE! Thank you for bringing your world to life for us....I hope the days are warm and mild...Big hugs,- Irina
What's cooking Kiddo?Hope you watch the Race today.. yvonne
