Into the Sky
Uh, have a mobile phone snapshot from earlier today, just so that something is happening on here again … . I kind of fell down on the updateryness, didn’t I? Ooops … . And to be honest, I don’t see it getting better for another week or so. You see, these days I am spending my days from ~8:30am to 4:30pm in the NASA archives (NASA! IKNOWRIGHT?!?!?), and then in the Library of Congress from ~5pm to anytime between 8pm and 9:30pm, depending on how long my mental faculties hold out, and so I don’t get much besides sleeping, eating, working done. It’s all good, but it means that I have accumulated a photo and things-that-are-happening backlog of rather impressive length, and don’t have the time/energy to tackle it, as I am spending it all on work. Which is good, but means the tumbleweeds are rollin’ here… .

Earlier this year I helped crowdfund the Michron, a time-lapse device for digital cameras. It took a while to get here, what with project completion and then shipping (the customs people needed to ponder its nature for weeks and weeks), but it finally arrived – and then sat on my photo shelf for another couple of weeks (and weeks).
Tonight I thought I’d finally try it out – and here is the result, a truly boring timelapse video of the Flensburg sunset (well, I guess you can see that the clouds were going in three different directions, depending on their height … so maybe only 99% boring). The Michron can do way more than I made it do right now … but as it is my first timelapse experiment, I thought I’d stick with “simple” for the time being. I’m looking forward to putting the Michron through its paces (I want to do sunrise to sunset on Campus from my office window [once the scaffolding is finally gone], I think)!
