Sonically better, but not as pretty.
I'm writing a presentation for 2gether08 tomorrow and I'm trying to squeeze some long photographs in. Mostly because I don't have anything new to say, but if I say it infront of things that move people might not notice.
I always feel I want to put music on them, because music smears this gloss of meaning on everything, even if entirely spurious. Somehow the niceness of flickr makes me feel like I shouldn't abuse anyone's music rights so I've been using electroplankton to add soundtracks, it's perfect for those fragmenty, moody bits of sound you need, and doesn't make you agonise about whether you got it just right.
These clouds definitely benefit from some luminloops.
As does maneki neko. (And big points to flickr who make embedding this stuff ludicrously easy.)
Strangely I've shot all these on my camera, despite a nice PR bloke sending me a flip video a while back. I've been carrying it around for weeks and have never once found a moment to use it, it seems like a device too far. My camera does video perfectly well, and the flip doesn't do anything clever like time-lapse as the N95 does. (Though it always seems to give up halfway through shooting something.)
I was quite pleased with the timelapse experiment here so I thought I'd try another thing. The above video is all the pictures I took in January, created by switching Snapz Pro on and holding down the advance key in the large picture view of iPhoto. I like that too, possibly because most of these pictures mean something to me, and obviously they don't to you. But you could make your own. Don't be wasting your cognitive surplus.
