I remember many years ago – probably in the last 1960’s my uncle Jim (who is near my age) getting out his Dad’s super 8 movies and putting them on the projector for us to watch. There on the screen was the grandfather I had never met. I don’t remember if there was sound but I saw him with his friends in their hunting camp with some of their prizes. It was amazing to me that I could see him smiling, moving about, enjoying the day. And it was captured on the screen for others to see.
Photography has always interested me but there’s something about catching the sounds and actions to be able to see in the future. The capturing of the whole is amazing.
So I have been doing more and more video with my camera so that I can capture some of the important sounds, voices and faces as they are at the moment.
Below is a small video I did from our visit to Jason and Susan at Christmas.
