On a very windy day last week, I ventured up to the headland to look for whales. The humpbacks are on their way south with their new calves, and it's delightful to watch them play when they swim closer to shore, slapping their fins and breaching, sending foam and spray into the air.
Of course, being a spur-of-the-moment decision, I only had my camera, not my tripod, so a certain amount of shaking was the result, given the blustery conditions. Nonetheless, the video isn't too bad, despite some movement which even editing couldn't eliminate entirely.
I've included part of a song from my days performing with my duo, Madame Dragonfly. My guitarist, Phillip J Hay, is a marvel. Not only does he play a mean guitar, but he's also a wonderful sculptor and artist. Together, we wrote and performed many songs, and the one I've featured here seemed to lend itself to the dreamy quality of the video.
I hope you'll derive as much pleasure from watchin and listening, as I did in its creation.
