The Waves and the Wind - a Video

video

Today is video day at the Blogathon, and with that in mind I shot my first video using my Smartphone (a simple step but also a big one...) last week, when I had a chance, once again, to walk Loyola Beach on the North side of Chicago. That beach is one of those places that makes me supremely happy every time I spend time there; I've featured it in many photo essays here, in winter, in fall and in summer. We are lucky if we have such a place, aren't we? A place that makes us happy?

As I sat in the cool sand (it was a beautiful day last Monday but not exactly a warm one), I thought, how about capturing the surf, the whipping of the wind, and the wide open horizon, just exactly as I heard it and experienced it in a little video? So here you go. If it sounds gusty and noisy, and you hear more wind than waves, well, that's the way it was that day.

  1. Good, steady hand. I'm trying to get up the nerve to post of video of my actual self doing something or talking to my audience about something witty and informative. Daunting.

    1. Julie - I agree, I haven't quite made it to filming myself, that is indeed daunting, but perhaps the next step! Do let me know when you do yours!

  3. I was thinking the same thing that Julie said. It was fun to watch and the wind sound was great! Nicely done.
