A new episode of The Geek Life is live! I see that Mike has titled it, rather accurately, “Who Needs Show Notes? Melissa Has Scotch!”
On Sunday, I attended at the MCBA Springcon comic book convention. Usually, I either have a table there, or I wander around taking photos. This time, I mostly just chatted with people I knew.
I do miss being more involved with the MCBA shows, which happen twice per year in St. Paul, MN. The MCBA are fantastic to work with. Even if you’re just a first-year peon in the comics industry, they’ll give you a table for free, they’ll give you a free steak dinner on Saturday night, and they’ll treat you like a pro. Great folks.
Despite my limited engagement this year, I did manage to snap a couple photos.
First, I happened upon Damon and Yancey. I love happening upon these gents, because they are always so well dressed…
…and so photogenic!
It’s a widget that you connect to a camera, which causes the camera to shoot images at controlled intervals. In other words, it will make my Sony a580 shoot time-lapse movies.
Now that I’m done jumping up and down with joy over my new gadget, I’ve come to a dilemma. So far, these are the uses I’ve dreamed up for time-lapse videos:
1. Road trips
So my question to you, hivemind, is this: what would be some crazy, nifty stuff I could capture via an HD time-lapse video?
I keep photos from my Galapagos trip on my desk at work. The VP of my division loves them, and in the past has bugged me to rotate them more often. He’s going to a different position in a different country in two weeks. I found the note on the right this morning…
Edited to add:
Below are the actual images of the two photos shown above. The full Galapagos gallery is here on Flickr.
