I am trying out my GoPro camera as a stills camera rather than the video camera most folk use it for. I wanted to the see the quality of the photos (not bad) – it has a wide-angle lens which I am not used to.
Obviously, I chose my subjects wisely.
So, this afternoon Floss and I went out for a ride, taking the dogs on a walk as well.
(the phone pole doesn’t actually bend in real life but it does look very odd)
The Go-Pro gives Haakon a neck like a thoroughbred (not a bad thing!)
BeAnne is much slower these days. She is 10 years old now and seems less keen on coming out with us. I had to go back for her a few times. I think she was hoping I would let her ride too. When she gets too old to come out, I will put her on Waffle and she can ride him. He would love to go for treks (my dream).
We didn’t go far.
Anyway, I am pleased with the results. The Go Pro was much more useable hung round my neck on a piece of string than stuck on my helmet filming my every move and/or squawk. I am also terrified I will drop my iPod/iPhone.
We got home in one piece (which is always my definition of a good ride) and met Lambie and Ster. I have a man with a digger in to dig up and level the sand surface of the school as it is mountains-and-valleys in places.
Note my extensive rug collection acquired over this winter. One for every degree increase or decrease in temperature. I have become obssessed, like I knew I would.
