Time lapse surprises
26. May 2011 Back in 2007 I was experimenting with a (brilliant btw.) software that takes snapshots on the Macbook with the builtin webcam every couple of minutes and then stitches them together into a movie.
A late summer bike trip
26. May 2011
It certainly is beautiful weather today! We are blessed with a very warm and sunny late summer week which has brought me the unexpected opportunity to take the bike for a spin. Closeby is the upper middle rhine valley which is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites and a very enjoyable place to ride a motorcycle.
After I returned from living in the USA many years ago I had the opportunity to travel the scenic route along the river by car and was stunned by the view of so many castles and fortresses. If you grow up in Europe, a medieval fortress is not a strange sight but if you return from other parts of the world, you feel like thrown into another century.
