BEDAu Day 23: On a walk

So, we went for an after dinner walk tonight and I took some pictures and made some videos. (Actually, I made one video and then Sarah made another.)

Here's what we got.

My video is not very successful, I think. I am not very skilled at carrying on any engaging video dialogue while walking and sticking to the point of the exercise (which was to get some exercise). Plus random strangers approached and I am got self conscious about capturing their image without their permission. Because, really all they want to do is walk.

So, it was kind of a failed experiment. I suppose if I took (had) the time to learn some video editing software, I could throw together different video clips into something more pleasing and coherent. But that's going to have to be a project for some other year.

So, to make it up to you, I also let Sarah do a recording while we walked. Who knows what she captured. Let's watch it together, shall we?

What I can tell you about it all is that I found myself constantly worried about tripping over my feet during this entire walk. Part of it is because I was wearing sandals, which give me no ankle support. I am growing increasingly aware of my leg and feet limitations as I am getting older. And frankly, I'm growing tired of the bizarre psychological warfare that is going on in my head these days.

So let's forget about that and just show a nice picture.

I like the way everyone here is a bit individual.
And, of course, it makes me think of
Reservoir Dogs.
What, it doesn't do that for you? Oh well.
