Flashback Friday -- My Dad
I wish I could tell my dad about my new toy. I am sure he would think it is really neat. It is a Flip Video Ultra. (Click on the picture for more information.)
I found reels (probably 20) of 8-mm film while cleaning and sorting for the sewing studio/office/design area. They are the large reels – 200 feet each. My father loved taking movies and splicing them together. Aside from the usual birthdays and vacation reels, he loved to shoot mountains. Miles and miles of mountains. Because mountains don’t move and he was making a movie, he would pan slowly back and forth. Oh, so boring.
I plan to take some shots of Mt. Diablo (sunset, snow-peaked, cloud enshrouded, dawn) but not too many, and I won’t pan back and forth. My Daddy did teach me some important life lessons.
