a couple of experiments


So I'm starting to panic about Ethiopia.

I woke up this morning and realized that I leave next week Thursday -- that is no time at all.  So today, I decided to go out and practice shooting a bit over in Hermann Park (shown above), play with the video features on the new D4 (shown below), and also try out SoundCloud, since this is likely how I'll be doing my thing while I'm over there.

So if you don't mind, do me a favour and click on the little orange arrow button to listen to the recording, above, and let me know what you think about the technology.  Also, I'll likely be doing these sorts of random posts for a bit between now and next Thursday (including little videos like the one of the Japanese Gardens at Hermann Park in Houston, below), as I try to get my chops ready.

Good Lord. I'm going to Ethiopia.
