Weight and Stuff Report – 9 August 2010

Marginally down again, how exciting.

As I mentioned earlier, I walked over to Gateshead at lunchtime. On my way across the Tyne Bridge, I saw this little guy, who seemed quite happy to pose for me:

Look at the birdie!

Gateshead Car Park Demolition – Video 1

I took a walk across to Gateshead at lunchtime, hoping to see some major concrete rending action, but my timing was a bit off, so all I could see was the diggers playing with the rubble. I took a few pictures, and also had a go at recording some video. I haven’t done any editing or adjusting other than adding titles and getting iMovie to upload it to YouTube. I may do more of these as the project continues, as the 5D Mk II does a reasonable job of it – I was quite impressed that the little built in microphone captured the noise as well as it did.

And that’s the first time I’ve actually put a video on YouTube…
