The Summer of 2016: video of when we introduced Tito, Tobi and Marti to the family!
I (Chris) spent pretty much all of the summer at home in the apartment as is my wont. We always take a break from the cat and dog pet transport which we run on a scheduled basis throughout the year transportinf cats and dogs (both pets and rescue) between Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and the UK.
This year though I really did shut myself away as I wanted to enjoy the first few months with Tito, Tobi and Marti, so I seem to have spent the whole summer wandering around with a Nikon D80 (old friend that I havenpt really used for years) with a GoPro stuck on the top, as I tried to capture some action shots of the three amigos.
Few issues quickly apparent:
- Summer spent basically on the roof, nature reserve and then beach once the tourists had gone so not much variety
- GoPro is great fixed to van dashboard or the bike, but really not that good as a regular video camera as no zoom, and no view finder
- I have a strange thing that I do with my little finger!!!!!
All in all though it was a great break, and we have been really pleased with how well the new family members have settled.
Below is a quick video (pun intended) of the summer as seen through the eyes of a not very well handled GoPro (I should add that editing the movie with the GoPro Studio was a first as well as I have been a long time iMovie user but it was painless and I was actually pretty impressed!)
