Ever wondered what my little corner of the earth looks like in the winter? You’ve come to the right place. Cambridge is one of those cities that looks darn pretty at any time of the year and has a rather lovely quality to it under a cold, grey sky. Which is good, really, cos we’ve sure got a lot of those.
If you’re wondering why the above photo looks so out of focus, it’s because it’s not a photo! It’s been a while since I’ve had a video for you. We can blame B and his strange cycle of hobbies – he’ll be really into something for a while then move onto something else. Then, weeks, months, sometimes over a year later he’ll get into it again. Right now, it’s watching endless anime. Anyway, while in a video phase he might either be shooting on a digital camera or his Super 8 using real film. The problem with the latter being that it takes a while for it to get developed, by which point he might be out of his video phase again… Aaaaand that’s what happened here. And that’s also why the film is a bit out of focus and the colours aren’t true – that’s the fun of Super 8. We love it, but if you want to see my outfit in crisp colour, this ain’t for you!
Long-time readers will recognise this outfit (sans the coat), because it did feature before, about a year ago. And yep, we shot this film on authentic Super 8… a year ago. But, if you don’t want to look at this outfit again, hopefully you’ll like the scenery, which is from the very centre of Cambridge. In the above shot, I am walking down an alleyway right next to the famous King’s College, in fact. Oh, and there’s my coat. I’ve worn this coat in a video before, so it’s not news, but it looks great with this outfit ;)PS You don’t need sound for this!
As ever, apologies that I’m not more lively in this video. I genuinely find it excruciating being filmed on my own – for some reason it’s so much worse than being photographed, but I couldn’t tell you why… Believe it or not, I do have a playful side – just not when a camera is pointed at my face.
