Cinemagraphs — and working with constraints

I was happy for the rain, for once, as it made the scene.
A partially moving sea (Porto)
A friend I’ve made in Seattle, and the gorgeous Montreal ferris-wheel.
An impromptu snowfall and 2 people who stood relatively still.
As this took 3 attempts, I’ve waited a long time for a metro I never entered…
Mum & Téco by the fireplace.
An eternally pouring wine with flames. A tough one!
Reflections, on the streets of Kingston.
Sped up like this, it’s funnier than the original 😅
Also looking pretty ridiculous at this speed, but…!

What did I learn from making all these things?

1. Art can be silly.

2. Create more excuses for play

3. Working constraints are fun, again!

4. There’s SO much happening around us, right now
