Sydney in 24 hours (stop-motion experiment)

I hope people like this, it was a bit of a experiment and was an idea that come into my head after watching the IMAX documentery ‘Chronos’ one evening which shows incredable stop motion form around the world. If theres positive feedback i’ll go to work on doing some better quality ones of the city using a better quality camera setup. The photos were taken every minute for 24 hours from 12 midnight to 12 midnight which made up a total of 1700 odd photos!

The hardest thing was compressing it down to size, learning what video compression technologies are good in what areas of movement, still learning this 🙂
Hope you enjoy

A Blast from the Past

I was bored at work again today, randomly going off to websites for a couple of minutes of time like you do in an excuse to get any from the highly interesting work focused thing your supposed to be doing at that time and I came across the Internet Archive.
It’s basically a site which stores snapshots in time of websites around the world if you’re lucky enough that your website gets archived by the service. Well a few of my old websites did! My old music site, my personal site e.t.c they got deleted many many years ago. I found it really interesting to see what I wrote about my life from those years ago.
Unfortunately the Internet Archive doesn’t archive the pictures or links to the files on the site but you can fill in the blanks and imagine what’s there 🙂
My Photo website – 2003
This was my last site I did before I started this blog up. It was bascally a colletion of all my photos on one website, took ages to write and update, hence im onto a much easier blog now.
My old Music website – 2001
This was all about the songs I made and DJ’ing back in the days. All my old music I made, wow this really took me back! I was so proud of all the music I made and then it was all lost when my computer crashed, this made me start backing up my computers finally 🙁 A small section on when I played on the Radio both via the Net and on FM radio up in Redhill London was on there. Lastly all the hellos to my old friends from the Internet I used to talk to for hours, this brought back some memories alright. Click on the menu bar in the top left to goto the differnt pages.
My old Personal website – 1999
This was I think the 2nd website I ever made and I really went to town on it, well on hours spent makign the thing at least 🙂 Back in 98 when I started the site, the net was a much much unknown and complicated

Photo gallery of some of my work

Here are some of my favourite images I have taken over the past 2 years. They are of various places I have been to around the world and all have ended up as my wallpaper at some point in time. All the photos were taken on my Olympus digital compact set to manual mode using a variety of focus’s, exposures & colour balances e.t.c.
I love to try and get a natural feel of plants, tree’s and landscapes through photos and sometimes they come out, I think really great, hope you enjoy the following examples.

The good old SHE days

Being the resident SHE web dood I’ve been updating the SHE website with the design of the flyer e.t.c and I cut up a video and uploaded it to the site also from Graham’s camcorder. It made me realise what great parties we have sometime’s 🙂 Graham and I rush around (more Graham I admit) and get all stressed before the event (again more by Graham than me I admit) then by the time it kicks off all is forgotton and the drinks, thanks and happy faces keep rolling along =)
Have a look at the streaming video here: what a party!
