Liza and Elmer's simple video was a hit, so I figured I'd horn in on that action and over-do it with a fancy video. Note the fade and music and credits. Hmm? Hmm?
But the bummer is, even with the fancy effects, the actual content is damn boring. Especially compared to Liza's simple and authentic moment that she so effortlessly captured.
I'll start attaching my camera to the bars on my bike for normal rides. I spent a week trying to make the camera work on my helmet. I couldn't get the angle right. It was hard to watch without feeling a bit queasy. Plus I've already got a light zip-tied on my helmet. So adding the camera added too much weight and out-nerded my already-to-high nerd threshold.
Anyway, my hope is that given enough hours of footage, I'll stumble (or crash) into something interesting. If I do, I'll set it to music and show it here.
Here's what I was carrying in the video:
The load was tall enough to interfere with steering, so I had to set it way out, which is not ideal for handling, but the bike still did well. The load was about 30 pounds.
