Tuesday Two For #269

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairThe Wife is slowly recovering from the flu. She’s getting better every day; but she’s still not back to her normal self. So, this week we’re just posting a few candid photographs. We should have more photos of our regular “activities” next week.”

Friday Featurette #268

Today we are posting a short video clip made with Corel VideoStudio X10. It’s a big file to be so short. If it were longer it would need to be down-sampled. But, it was quick and easy to add a mosaic (pixilation) effect with the track motion filter. Unfortunately, it can’t do anything about the sound.

Tuesday Two For #268

Since we’re having problems making movies with sound, we though that it might be fun to play around with some of the video effects that don’t work well with audio. So, this week, we’re speeding up the videos. Not as something to do all of the time. Just something different. Please let us know what you think.

Friday Featurette #267

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionBecause of the technical difficulties with our camera during this week’s photo session, I had to reach into the way back machine for today’s photograph. Fortunately, I didn’t need to reach back very far. This picture is from a week ago. I just upgraded to the latest version of PaintShop Pro so I had to re-configure my workspace since the everything reverted to the to the defaults. We hope that you didn’t have to work and were able to relax and enjoy the day. Have a great second half of the long weekend.

Tuesday Two For #267

Sometimes, it seems like our camera has a mind of its own. It suddenly just stops taking photographs or recording videos. It’s very annoying to discover that we have only a handful of pictures or a few minutes of video at the end of a photo session. Such was the case this week when we were making a video. We’ve got a few good clips to post. But, not as much as we were expecting for our private archives. Perhaps there will be some good Black Friday deals in “Camera & Photo”. And, once again, there is no audio to go with the video since recording sound with our current camera is so problematical.

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionIt’s hard to tell with the pixilation; but The Wife had a nice smile in this picture so we decided to post it. It’s great that we’re still laughing and having fun after all these years. Just like this past summer has flown by, we wonder how all the years since we first met went by so fast too. We mostly still look toward the future; but sometimes, we reflect on the past. It’s been quite an adventure.
