Photo of the Day – Romantic Hyde Park

January 21, 2010

Pumphouse and Italian Garden

 

My flat-mate and I strolled through some portions of Hyde Park today. I was a romantic site with the sun setting as we walked south west. We started at the Marble Arch corner, made our way to the Italian fountains. Despite being winter, through out the park were winter gardens and giant trees that rival those of Central Park. We walked beside the boomerang-shaped pond observing the waterfowl until we found the Peter Pan Statue. We saw the Queen’s temple, which looked quite lonely in the middle of the lawn. On our walk towards the Serpentine Gallery we smiled at all the cute dogs running beside their owners. The gallery displayed many 21st century artifacts including wind turbines, economy airline seats, armor, and information about some displays on an Amazon Kindle.  from the gallery, we walked further south west to the Albert Memorial, which was one of the most unbelievable memorials I have ever seen. It was abundant with gold, marble statues, and it towered high above topped off with a cross. We made our way north as the sun was setting.

Of course there is even much more to see in Hyde Park and we will certainly be back through out our stay.

New Year’s Day

No this isn’t a commercial for Canon.

After several video pieces published on the Web site of S.P. Sullivan, it is time he met his match.

This video of mister Sullivan was shot on a Canon T1i. (Though I wish it was a Mark.)

The original music was recorded in GarageBand through a Tascam mixer with a Takamine acoustic guitar. It was edited with Final Cut Pro in the H.264 codec (unfortunately the playback isn’t very smooth). And I do need a tripod.
