Vlogging, Not Blogging

I don’t blog anywhere near as much as I did over the last few years. 2019 has been fairly quiet so far. This is mostly because I have a variety of day-jobs:

  • I wash windows more often,
  • I perform gardening activities for two main clients,
  • I create tshirt designs both for myself and a few clients – but more about this in an upcoming blog.
  • plus have had a recent opportunity to produce a video.

Yes, I said that: I am producing videos. It’s almost a dream come true.
Here is my most recent:

I won’t deny that I need a lot more training. I pore over all of Peter Mckinnon’s videography training videos to learn so much. Some of my style is based loosely on Casey Neistat and Dan Mace, but mostly I have stuck with the Youtube basics – an interesting five second start, the content, the voice-over, a good soundtrack, and a twenty second static ending for the advertising.

I plan to shoot more videos later in 2019. I’ve been told that Bryan and Denise are doing another flight with ChintaAir – and want me to edit the next video! Watch this space!


Kingscote vs Adelaide

After 32 years living in multiple suburbs of Adelaide, the last 18 in the Adelaide hills, 19 years working in the CBD, we moved into Kingscote on Kangaroo Island in late 2016.

All effort has been put in to rebuild my wife’s honey business, plus get my artwork in display and window-washing businesses on-track. Life is slowly improving.

Yet I miss Adelaide. Here are all the things I actually miss (in no particular order):

  • Family
  • Cinema
  • Friends
  • UnEarthed Wine Nights
  • Photography Walks in CBD with only 2-hours notice
  • Gouger Street
  • Rundle Street
  • Architecture
  • Trains
  • 10 Pin Bowling
  • Indoor Kiddie Playgrounds

There’s more I am sure. Just saying.

This post is a hint to my family and friends. My 50th Birthday is in early 2019. Subtle as a sledgehammer.
