It was a special day. The Blessing of the Fleet, a traditional activity, was the opening act for a solemn service recognizing members who have died since last year’s ceremony.
It was a contrast of emotion.
From the festive nature of the blessing to the subdued memorial service.
Then, back to a festive day with poolside cooking.
The Art of the Automobile is a popular car event held annually in Daytona Beach. It’s focus is on showcasing vehicles from several decades, with a couple of themes mixed in. From 1940s military and “luxury” cars to muscle and race cars, the event is a fascinating educational experience. Car owners, some of whom are there to sell their vehicles, will gladly engage in conversation, providing trivia and detail.

I had an opportunity to attend my first sailing regatta on Thursday, 9 April 2015. It was the first “Ocean Race” of the 2015 St. Augustine Race Week.
I shot a couple of hundred digital pictures, along with motion video. Now, I need to figure out how best to present the event. Or, at least, the portion of the event I was exposed to.
This video is 90 seconds. It’s a selection of images using the pan & zoom technique made popular by Ken Burns. I’m working on the timing. And, music.
I happen to like downtempo and chillout music, now, so I’ll mix that style for a while, then something completely different. It’s amazing how video can adapt to most musical genres.
