Some of the video shots which I make with the "point-n-shoot in my pocket" just demand to have music added to them. This is one of those.
It was a rainy day in Pasadena. I was walking along Lake Avenue where I encountered a large puddle at the entrance to a super market parking lot. The puddle had formed because of a stopped-up drain. On the water's surface there was a little oil from which light reflected.
As I filmed, a car passed through the puddle and then someone walked right in front of my camera. The car created waves which are what the piece is really about, I guess. I edited the person's legs out completely.

One of my previous video pieces was filmed on the same block, across the street. Here's that one as well:

Another Mixed Meters "oil and water" reference is my "piano" piece entitled Oil and Water Mix. No video there, just music. That piece is 666 seconds long.
