Photo Stories Day 7 Videoblogging Week 2007

Photographs have stories behind them. They capture pieces of moments in time. Memories of family and friends often are what make these images important to us. I look forward to making more memories with those I know and those I have yet to meet. I'll be capturing moments with still images and video. Surely I'll share more here as I go.
Thanks for watching. Thanks for those of you who share as well. Thanks for those who support with encouragements and comments.
Happy Videoblogging Week 2007

Photo Stories Day 4 Videoblogging Week 2007

Looking back on old images brings back mixed emotions and memories. I find it is often difficult for me to look back on my high school years with fondness for very long.

Those years marked a bit of a turning point for me. One in which I have often said to myself that if it were possible to go back and do it again I would do so in a heartbeat.

With all that said, and even though for whatever reason it was emotionally difficult for me to look back on these images I am thankful that I have been taken to the point I am at now. I am glad for the lessons learned and for the grace given me even in my foolishness.

I originally thought I was going to talk about my long hair or my experiences playing hockey in Brooklyn in this video but instead I thought that I should tell the story that was most prominent in my head. The story that for me is most powerful. I tried to record other stories tonight, but if I am true to myself, true to being completely known, if I put aside what I think others might think or say, this is the video that I have to post.

Some may think I am being negative, some may think that I'm too hard on myself....think what you might.....I look back and am spurred on to better....I look forward with hope. I know that my life in the past has had both good and bad (much like anyone else's life)......and yet the best of my life has yet to come(a possibility that exists for us all). Each day is a blessing, each day is a step forward, each day is a day closer to the Lover of my soul. That is the story behind each image, and each memory: they all lead me Godward. And for that I am very thankful.

Photo Stories (Day 3) 2nd-8th Grade

In today's video I discuss some photos and issues that span from about 2nd grade up til 8th grade.

I talk about glasses, being picked on, crushes, NKOTB, and birthday cake.

I remembered while editing that it is actually Jordan who sings "I'll be loving you (forever)" Joey used to sing "Cover Girl" which was on the tape right after "I'll be loving you".

So thinking Jordan was Joey is one error in this vid. There is at least one other ooops in this video. But my computer has been taking very long to render into h.264 so I have decided I that I'm gonna leave it instead of staying up til 3am again to change it.

See ya tomorrow.

Happy Videoblogging week.

Photo Stories Day 2 Videoblogging Week 2007

Today I chose a picture from 1982. It is a picture of me and my sister sitting at the front steps of the Long Island home of my great aunt and my great uncle.
I thought it would be ok to show this pic of my sister since she is grown up now, but since she isn't here at this moment for me to get her permission I won't talk about her here.
I want also to keep the production on these videos down. Just have them be conversational and with out a bunch of takes. So I am trying to shoot in one take. Here I cut out when the phone rang and a pause and that'll help me keep it a bit shorter too.
Some of the things I remember and discuss are playing with rocks, Kiss Colorforms (I found a link for this colorform set here seems like if I woulda kept that set I could sold it for over 100 dollars today.), and short shorts.

Photo Stories....Day 1 Videoblogging Week 2007

For this years videoblogging week I thought I'd go with a theme. In short, I'm planing on finding some old pictures from different moments of in my life and share the memories and stories that I am reminded of when I see these images.

This first video is mainly an intro to my plan for the week but it does include a photo of when I was still only a couple of years old. And since I make reference to the story she tells it also features a bit of video I was able to record of my "Tita" (Grandmother) that I took on my last trip to Florida.
