My sleep has been screwed, so I was actually awake before dawn yesterday… and since my iPad was fully charged I decided to throw her out back to take a time-lapse video for as long as she could. 🤔🤞🏻 Shooting one frame every five seconds, she was able to last for nearly seven hours. 😃 It starts around 6:30a, just a little after dawn, and does eventually go from “bleh and cloudy” to “half-way decent” before it’s over.
(Like all of these time-lapse and sky/astronomy themed vids, it’s best viewed in HD and full screen.)
And I know, it’s essentially the same thing I’ve been doing over and over again here at the house… 😏 although this one was more of a test of the battery. 🤨 So at least now I know that if I set it out there and have one of those booster battery packs already plugged in, there’s a good chance that I’d be able to do a dawn to dusk time-lapse of a single day without it having to be plugged in. 🤓 The trick then would be figuring out which day would have dramatic enough clouds without also having pouring down rain.
Meh… all of this stuff is kinda like my brain just tolerating eating generic, frosting-free “toaster pastries” when it would really prefer the brand name, frosting covered, goo stuffed, delicious Pop-Tarts brand toaster pastries. 😅 ie: I still wanna be creative, but I have a hard time motivating myself enough to get away from the house to do it. 😒 But hey, this one gets kinda pretty around the middle part, so there’s that…
