I’ve been feeling tired over the past few days, so I missed making a film the first day this week. But I’ve managed to edit four videos from my archives, and film two new ones, so that’s pretty good going!
15th November: Grand Central Station, Birmingham, England
Another film that I’ve edited from archive footage, taken in October 2015 when I was visiting my family in Birmingham. The railway station always used to be known as Birmingham New Street – I’m not sure why it was changed to “Grand Central”… It is rather grand, though – especially compared with the old station!
16th November: Trees in the Breeze
Today started off with blue skies and sunshine – then the wind picked up. Ideal weather for filming some colourful autumn trees in the breeze – plus one of two banana trees in the same street. I wonder whether they’re related?!
17th November: Timelapse Clouds
Fast-moving clouds today (even at normal speed!) – made more so with time lapse.
18th November: Beverley Glick interview
This is a one-minute edit of an interview I did last year with my friend Beverley Glick – The Story Archaeologist, public speaking coach and co-host of The Story Party in London, about her time as a music journalist, and how it influenced the work she does now.
19th November: Regents Canal, Haggerston, London
Today, for the first time in over five months (since being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in the brain), I took the bus to my local High Street on my own and visited a couple of shops. It’s so nice to be in the wider world again! It’s a huge milestone. This video is edited from footage taken in May 2015, during one of the first London Brunch Club photowalks I joined.
20th November: Timelapse Thames
A bit of fun with time lapse by the Millennium Bridge on the River Thames in London, in March this year – with the Shard in the background. Most of today was taken up with hubby and me trying to repair a dining chair, starting with the webbing – but we made a rookie mistake and have to start again tomorrow!
