Running Away (sample)

I’m getting into doing more videos and need a lot more practice. Please let me know of any good editing tutorials that are out there as I’m a long way from where I need to be. I did this one because some people were interested in how I play my original compositions so it’s a sneak peak into some of the techniques I use. Hope ya dig it.

Colmar-vellous

We had the end of our whirlwind week away in sight, so we were up early in Nuremburg (Germany) where we stayed for a night and we hit the road. We arrived at night and were too tired to explore it so I have no pictures of it and we had a big drive ahead of us to get back to Lyon, maybe next time I’ll check it out. I was driving and saw a sign for a place that Sylwia had mentioned and it’s 4 hours north of Lyon called “Colmar” and I had seen the pictures and it looked awesome so we decided to go there for lunch and a very quick walk around the city centre. I will have to go back there for a better look (and better photos) because it was another beautiful city with a nice feel to it. It was a bit annoying that as soon as we crossed the french border the rain came but we were very lucky for our trip so I shouldn’t complain. Colmar is a quaint little place and the photos don’t do it justice, I was too much of a zombie to use my proper camera so these are just iPhone pictures. I put them through Adobe Lightroom to try and make them a bit better and more interesting. It was my first time using this program and it seems pretty cool. Anyway, we ate pizza and walked briefly through the city centre and it was awesome, a definite must see if you’re in the area. And that concludes another quick trip through some amazing places in Europe, we were trying to figure out how many countries we had all been to and this trip took my tally up to around 24 (I’m sure there’s a few more) which is pretty cool but there’s still so much more to explore. Great fun and great people. Good times :)

Land of Poles

Not knowing what to expect and having no pre conceived idea of a country is an interesting and fun way to travel but my friend is a local which always helps ;)                   We arrived in Zielona Gora at night, quite tired from the big drive so we didn’t do much. The next day we ate some nice traditional food cooked by grandma (Pierogi) and then explored the town centre. It’s a nice place and has a very familiar european vibe to it. In the town centre they have these little statues that look a little bit like little trolls and apparently you can pay for one to be made and put somewhere in the city if you feel the need to do so and they’re scattered around doing various things (reading, photography etc) and there is one big one in the centre in an interesting position. We tried some chocolate in a shop that is owned by an old school friend of Sylwia and he’s doing really well with it which is great and it all tasted pretty damn good. Went also took a little trip into a forest which was close by and had to go on a little 6 car barge to cross one of the biggest rivers in Poland and then wandered around which was nice. There are these “dancing trees” which can’t be explained, they twist and turn as if they were dancing and it’s thought that maybe back in the old days they were bent around from when they were baby trees to help when making boats and other things (I didn’t get any pictures of these). We drove through a few little villages which have such a cool vibe and they’re similar to most other villages that are scattered all over the countries I’ve been to, very cool. We also went to a cemetery where people put candles all over the graves for what is called “All Saints” and it’s strange but it creates an interesting feel that I can’t say that I’ve had in a cemetery before, so I practiced a little night photography again there and then in the town centre. All in all it was a cool place to visit and tomorrow we head to Germany for another quick stop before going home to Lyon. Good stuff Poland :) I’ve been to, very cool.
