Good morning, everyone, It was a wet old day yesterday, rather more than the 'light rain and a gentle breeze'. To be fair, they got the second bit right but rather underestimated the first bit. Nice for ducks and seagulls!
So, yesterday, I got my early shopping done, just as the rain started, very light and intermittent. The drive to Framlingham was pretty easy - it's not at all a difficult route. I was very glad I had my waterproof with me though, as the rain got harder and more persistent. I walked the walls, grateful that the wind was only light, looked at the exhibition, had a very welcome cup of coffee with my breakfast fruit, visited the nearby church and strolled around the streets.
The drive back was certainty a fair bit damper than the drive there!
Turning 360 degrees smoothly is a lot harder than you would think.
Again, thanks to Eileen and others who suggested uploading videos to YouTube first. As you can see, it worked and it's definitely a Good Thing to know. I wonder why Blogger wouldn't recognise my videos though; YouTube had no problems with them.
Next step is to start learning how to edit - but not this week!
After lunch, I decided to brave the rain and stroll around. I went to the little Southwold Museum to see if it was open and it was so I spent a good half an hour in there before crossing the road to St Edmund's church. I had a good nosey round but saw that on Thursday afternoon there's a free guided tour so I'll be going back then.
However, she contacted Sutton Hoo and has booked there for the same time as me tomorrow, bless her, so we will meet up at the entrance. Isn't that lovely?
Val obviously enjoys driving distance a lot more than I do. :-)
Then another walk to the harbour, perhaps, or along the pier and around that end. Early evening, I will be driving to Kessingland to the SW group there - because it's there!! It's a very straightforward journey, not too far and YouTube Street View even shows the SW poster outside the church centre.
I am enjoying your videos, you're becoming a vlogger!ReplyDelete
Hoping the weather improves for you. Have a lovely day. X
Thanks, lol - well, I'm falling at the second hurdle - stitching clips together. However, I will get there. It doesn't help that the internet connection keeps dropping. xxDelete
I love your videos Joy. It's a great way to record a day out isn't it. I have a lot to learn about editing having only really mastered adding music. The bird song in the castle sounds lovely. Such a pity the weather wasn't great for you. It was smashing here until just after tea.ReplyDelete
Adding music, eh? That sounds good. I agree, the bird sound was lovely. There weren't many people about so maybe they were bolder. xxDelete
Pity about the rain, but you didn't let it stop you doing things, good for you, I wouldn't have gone out in it! (I'm a wimp when it comes to rain). How lovely to be able to meet up with your friend tomorrow. xxReplyDelete
I'm not terribly keen on rain but, having s[pend a mini fortune on this holiday, the weather isn't going to win. If I were at home, I'd be staying in. Maybe I ought not to though - stay in, I mean. :-) xxDelete
I love your videos and pictures a great addition to your blog .Hope you have a good dayReplyDelete
Thanks, Jane - I have a feeling there will be more clips from now on. xxDelete
You're as good as filming a 360 degrees as I am, I nearly fell over the first time I did it, and I have yet to learn to edit, all my films are done in a one shot take, if it goes wrong ... it goes wrong!! I'm glad the transferring to YouTube idea worked for you, now you have a channel you can become an Influencer ;-)ReplyDelete
* laughing my socks off * Fat chance of that! Mind you, some of them earn a fortune, don't they, but at what cost?Delete
I'd love to be able to stitch clips together but when I tried it using some software this morning, it said they were in an unsupported format or something. Funny, that - YouTube doesn't have any trouble with them.
The other option with your videos being in the wrong format to load directly to Blogger is to see if you have the option on your camera to record in different formats. It's something to consider is you do decide to update your camera and want to continue making videos. Your much better at videos than I am ... mine are always wonky and shaky!ReplyDelete
I think that's the next step, yes. I don't even know what video 'extensions' (is that what you call the bit after the dot?) are although I think one is .wmv. Must find that out too. I'll wait until I get home; apart from anything, the connection keeps dropping which is frustrating!Delete
Thanks, for your kind comments - I think I'd like to pursue it a bit - enough to stitch clips together and to edit, add music/voice overs, etc. xx
Thrilled you are going to Sutton Hoo tomorrow. I shall be eagerly looking forward to images or even a video of your visit. Enjoy. Amanda xReplyDelete
I'm really looking forward to it, even more now that I'm meeting up with Val. I'm sure I will take a few clips. :-)Delete
What great video's. You did an excellent job of them. What an interesting church.ReplyDelete
Well, thank you. It's a start, isn't it? I'm quite looking forward to learning a bit more.Delete
It was interesting. There's some very old graves/memorials in the church, running along side the history of the castle.
