Video Editing And Social Media

In the past if you wanted to be a video editor you also needed to be a camera operator, and to be a camera operator you needed to be a video editor. By knowing both skills you shot good material because you knew how hard bad material was to use. As a result of this videos were worth watching with all of our attention. In recent years, there has been a move towards multimedia editing, where you don’t expect people…

A Saturday Walk During A Pandemic

A Saturday Walk During A Pandemic

Last week it was comfortable and warm so it was tempting to go cycling. This week it has gone back to being cold. Yesterday it was cold and windy and today was cold but sunny. I went for my usual walk but rather than listen to a podcast I watched TikTok videos as I walked at full speed. I am so used to the paths that I do not always need to pay attention. The paths are dry. It hasn’t…

Day 51 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Only Two People At A Time

Day 51 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Only Two People At A Time

Today I went in to a shop without knowing that the limit was two people at a time. Paradoxically there were not two but five people in the shop because if you’re a parent with a child you’re allowed to be two, so there were four people. I saw no sign on the door because the door was open so I didn’t know. The shop in my village doesn’t have that rule. It seems stupid to ignore the rule for…

Day 47 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – A Walk In The Rain

Day 47 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – A Walk In The Rain

Yesterday I went for a walk in the rain. I walked for two hours, took pictures and listened to Echo Der Zeit and this episode of the Thru-Hiking podcast. Gretel Scarlet was the interviewee. She talked about South Bound (SOBO) hiking the PCT. It’s interesting to see how different her attitude was to most people’s, how being a dancer, and someone who considers nutrition, speaks differently of food and injuries. Thanks to the rain most people stayed indoors. This was…

Day 45 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – The Need For Outdoor Exercise.

Day 45 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – The Need For Outdoor Exercise.

This aftrnoon reminded me of the need for outdoor exercise. I was feeling lazy and unmotivated to go outdoors. I thought that the rain would come back during my walk, as it did during my scooter ride, and as it did yesterday. I checked the weather app and I saw that we should have good weather until tomorrow so I took advantage to go for my walk. This time I was light. I went with my AirPods, my phone, and…

Day 38 of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Contact Sports

Day 38 of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Contact Sports

By May we may be able to go back to doing sports in groups as long as they are not “contact sports” in Switzerland. For me this means hiking, running cycling and other related sports. For me climbing is a contact sport because we touch the same hand holds as everyone else climbing the routes, we use the same ropes and we share quickdraws and belay devices. This being said I also have no desire to do sports like climbing…
