An attempt of posting a youtube video

For the Ex-Voxers – most of you know this video 😉
For those who don’t know it  some facts:

We call the project “Go For 2” The name of the song is “Valle Gran Rey”.

My friend plays the lead electric guitar (a Gibson “Les Paul”) for the melody and made some improvisations over the groove. Additionally he played  some acoustic guitars and arranged the funky part of the song.

I play the second electric guitar ( a “Strat”) – the second voice on the melody track, the keyboards, synthesizers, drums and percussion (most of that stuff on a step arranger), not to forget some acoustic guitars and the vocals.

The backline arrangements and my vocals I recorded  at my home. The additional lead instruments and the other acoustic and electric guitars were recorded at my friend’s studio where we also produced it and made the final mix.

And here it is!

Thank you for your tutorial freedomsmith, but I have only a link on my post – no image…

What was the mistake I made?

My first impressions when I checked the file (particularly interesting for Ex-Voxers):

1. the quality of the video is much better!

2. I never heard such a authentic sound – so near to the master file we produced as a wav.file

3. It may take some time to upload the stream – particularly the best (720 pixels) version – so what!?

kindest regards

Heron’s Breakfast in the Marsh…

August 13., after sunrise

I made a lot of photos this morning. The first series I successfully tried was a panorama stitch of 5 photos (you can find it as header  on my “something about me”.  There was no wind and  I thought to myself that some beautiful backlight would give me a chance to make some good shots in the marsh. There I tried my first HDR photo – successfully *yay*.  When this work was done I entered my car to continue my photo scavenger hunt  – and then – I discovered a flock of herons in the marsh. One of them was not that far away so that I could – just – better said – hardly – capture him with my 70-300mm lens.

Yesterday and today

Autumn is arriving now with giant steps. It was raining all the days what means that’s  a good time to settle down on WordPress and checking out the files that are waiting on my harddrive to be sifted.  OK , I started to look at this folder again yesterday in the late evening while the rain was pattering on the window and I made a discovery…  When I checked out this folder the first time immediately after my shootings  in August I selected the first and posted it to Vox (r.i.p.). But Yesterday I realized that I had a complete “heron’s breakfast” on my harddrive and started to crop and edit three photos and posted them here without any comments and went to sleep *yawning*… After I woke up *still yawning* I decided to make it complete (adding shot #4 and 5), then an intermission *growl* – take a shower – bring my love to the railway station (I’m in urgent need of the car, the weather is much better for some – I don’t dare to articulate…) and then some household chores *sic* while my entry is still waiting to be completed.

I made it

One sight, one shot every month……

Now time has come to add the last picture to this post. The change in nature  has been shown a whole year long with a look out of one window – always the same sight. This is the very last look for me indeed 'cause the house we lived together since we met us has to be sold now. And – some of you know it – we moved….

Last year in october I purchased a Panasonic DMC FS 3 to make some photos. A few days later it came into my mind to make a one years cyclus that I titled "A look out of a window once a month". When I saw how nature exploded I took three of the photos and posted them here. A friend of mine gave me the idea to keep on posting my shot due to this theme. That's why this series is dedicated to my friend Manuela who invited me to vox…Forgot my camera in my new flat – the August-photo will follow tomorrow.

Thank you Manuela, you made my life more colorful as it already was. I had a lot of joy doing this. Thanks to all who have been with me!
