I went for another fun ride today. As I planned, I did lots of rails and one in particular I was really pleased with. I was planning to try riding a rail/low wooden fence, 180-ing, then continuing backwards but never got around to it.
I also didn’t manage the gaps I was attempting for some time on some small posts about 450mm (18") high. It was the hop up there that got to me. Although I could make the height every time, I think I couldn’t really sucessfully complete the line because a hop that high isn’t quite easy enough for me and I was all out of balance at the top. Quite frustrating, because it was a cool set of gaps and I really wanted to be able to start up there on top of one so I couldn’t actually try it.
Anyway, I found some more nice spots to ride today and they’re in this video.
The music is the end of “Changui”, again by the Charlie Hunter Quintet.
Well let’s not forget how much fun it is to do the riding and to make movies, but you’re welcome :).
One thing I’ve noticed over the past few months is just how much of a difference good lighting can make in a video. Light adds so much contrast and brings out all the nice colours. For example the 2nd clip.
Andrew,none of your videos work for me!
I dont know why.
Most other videos work for me,some dont.
and yours are one of them.
I keep getting a message thing that says"some codecs requiered for this media are not downloaded on your computer".
Thanks again guys. Owen, I think you need to re-watch the Universe’s before saying things like that!
What version of Windows are you running? It’s really odd that they’re not working for you, they don’t have any fancy codecs in them. I don’t know how much effort you want to go to, but if this is becoming an issue with some of your other videos on your computer too I’d suggest downloading either “Media Player Classic”, or “The Core Media Player”. There are heaps of others but these are two that I often use. The Core Media Player is my default media player these days.
