This Past Weekend's Video

I didn't take any still photos this weekend. Instead I shot this with my little digital camera. I made a trip to a skatepark in Georgia Saturday, went for a bike ride Sunday morning and took Ileya to the park Sunday afternoon.

Riding in Tuskegee

This is a clip from a bike ride I did in Tuskegee National Forest a couple weeks ago. I had the camera mounted on my bars with this clamp I use at work sometimes. When I watched it from the site, things didn't seem to go smoothly. The video ran slower than the audio track, the music should cut off right before I ride up to the car.

Video Blogging!

I finally found a free host site where I can place video. This is a clip from the Montgomery Skatepark last night. The action may not be all that, but I am at the experimental stage with the video thing:

The Factory Skatepark

This wooden wonder is located in Newnan Georgia at a place called the Factory Skatepark. I drove over there while Mary was working Saturday. I was under the impression that Newnan was a lot closer to Auburn that it was, turns out it was almost in freakin Atlanta. Then I got lost trying to find the place, but I had fun anyway. The photo to the right is a screen grab from a video. I put my little camera in the bottom and carved over it.

Friday Night Dinner

This was dinner at my place Friday night. Cajan BBQ Tuna steaks served over Crawfish Alfredo Linguini, the wine was Red Bicyclette Syrah. Posted by Picasa

Check out this link!

This is a great site. It is from a guy that bought an old candy box in a junk store. It had an Argus-a in it with ten rolls of undeveloped 35mm. He processed the film, and many images came out great:

Mount Trashmore, Virgina Beach, VA

This beauty is at Mount Trashmore skatepark in Virgina Beach, Virgina. I didn't skate very long as Mary was with me and it was very hot. Mount Trashmore was the location of a famous ramp back in the eighties, where former pro skater Mark "Gator" Gonzales punched out a cop and Tony Hawk did the first 720. Posted by Picasa
