The Inka Trail

I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to join a cou­ple of friends some months ago, and trav­el south to the land of Peru. This coun­try is rich in nat­ur­al resources I tell you. The weath­er was nice. We were blessed with most­ly par­tial­ly-cloudy to sun­ny days in our time in the Andes. I could only imag­ine how it would have been if most of the descent on the Trail were wet and slip­pery due to rain.

Mean­while, I made a quick iMovie video slideshow show­ing most of the high­lights of the trek. I was orig­i­nal­ly going to use Ani­mo­to to do it but find­ing the right music might have been the lim­it­ing fac­tor as you can only select from a select library from their end. I fig­ured I might as well use what I have and pro­ceed­ed to cre­ate the fol­low­ing.

Here’s the video. Enjoy!

Ode to Flight

I decid­ed to do a quick exper­i­ment using my Canon Pow­er­shot SD880 cam­era. I doc­u­ment­ed my flight from Bur­bank to Oak­land this past Sun­day night. I know its an every­day thing now since its been part of soci­ety since the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry but its just crazy cov­er­ing 350 miles in just an hour. The con­ve­nience of that ver­sus dri­ving a car for 5.5–6 hours between the Bay and LA.

Flight—its sim­ply an amaz­ing thing.

Here is the set that I com­piled.
