I took the photos you'll see here on Christmas Eve Day at the sadly under-visited National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. I kinda like this style of video, and next time I'll remember to include a title page and credits. I created it using Photo Story 3, which the reviews prefer to Moviemaker for videos of stills. It's free and incredibly easy to use.
Next up, the U.S. Botanic Gardens, which I visited on Christmas morning. It was possibly the only place open that day and one Belgian guy I met wandering the city killing an 8-hour lay-over was sure happy to discover it.
These are my first attempts at capturing the Gardens of Washington throughout the Year in order to promote these under-promoted gems – a big project that'll only be completed if I find sponsors. I'm talking to DC's tourism board, of course, but who else? Ideas, please.
On my blog I've chronicled some of my mistakes made and lessons learned about buying a camcorder, and gotten some very helpful comments.
