The addition of a hummingbird feeder in our backyard plus my new pocket point 'n shoot with video capabilities has now produced its inevitable first result: a Mixed Meters Movie Moment - one minute of hummingbirds feeding to the accompaniment of my own music.
This is the first time I've ever tried to compose music to a moving image - hard to believe for someone who has lived in Los Angeles for almost 35 years. I probably broke every rule in the book. (Actually, I hope I broke every rule in the book.)
Both video and music are (c) 2007 by David Ocker.
Here's my best Hummingbird Still Shot. Click to enlarge.
Here's another MM post with a lucky picture of a hummingbird at rest.
Our cat Spackle showed an intense interest in the hummingbird movie. So I shot this video of her trying to catch the moving image of the hummingbird.
And she seemed just as interested in the video of her watching the video of the hummingbird.
Where will it all end?
The video of Spackle is dark and hard to watch when I play it from this page. Apparently if you watch it at YouTube it'll look better. Click here.
