Bardarbunga Drone and Ontake Hikers

Going back to volcanoes again, here’s a DJI Phantom drone, piloted by director of aerial imaging Eric Cheng (whom I had previously met a long time ago in Palau), visiting the currently erupting Bárðarbunga Volcano in Iceland: Meanwhile, in Japan, a surprise eruption on the volcano Ontake has stranded and killed hikers on its slopes.

Day in Pompeii

Still on the topic of volcanoes, here’s a “A Day in Pompeii,” a vivid 3D animation of the destructive eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD, by Zero One for Melbourne Museum in 2009.


The snowstorm started while we were at church in DC two Sundays back, big wet flakes leaving a dusting on the ground by the White House. I used my new iPhone 5s to try and get slow motion clips of the snowflakes as they fell. Later in the day the snow changed to sleet and […]

Swan Chicks and Tower Ravens

It is taking me an embarassingly long time to get my travel log entry for London up, but it is almost done. In the meantime, please enjoy these videos of cygnets preening in Hyde Park and the resident ravens of The Tower of London:

Owning the Clouds – Apology, Withdrawal

Followup to Owning The Clouds and the update: I got an email from Sarah Bernard of 23/6, apologizing for the inadvertent pulling of my video due to Google/YouTube’s content identification. I forgive you, 23/6! Dear Paulo, I’m Sarah Bernard, President of 23/6. Please know that we certainly did not intend for our posting the video, […]

Owning the Clouds – Update

Update: An apology from 23/6, inaction from Google. Update: Good news! I have uploaded my cloud time lapses to Vimeo. To emphasize the authenticity of the footage, I have uploaded the uncut version, with camera jostles and stretches of relatively empty sky that were edited out of the version more popularly distributed as various parodies […]

Owning the Clouds

Update: Please see “Owning the Clouds – Update.” So, is the movie at right loading yet? Every moment that it does not load when the play button is clicked, and every moment that this returns an “unavailable” error page is another moment of Google Video denying me ownership of my own work. Some of you […]

Pope Passes Penn Ave

Birthday Boy Benedict XVI is in town, on the first papal visit to the United States Washington, DC since John Paul II came in 1979. Barricades lined Pennsylvania Ave in Foggy Bottom this morning, where the Popemobile would pass after a welcome at the White House: Myself, I haven’t seen a Pope since the last […]

Flickr Video

First Flickr video, shot with the 6120c: I got first wind of Flickr’s impending launch of video from TechCrunch’s Twitter stream and puppet show announcement (followed by more puppet buzz from Flickr themselves). Matt confirmed to me that he had indeed been in on the private beta, shortly before Flickr announced it officially. When I […]

Clouds, Anonymous, Nader

Back in my old apartment I would often leave my webcam on the window ledge, pointed up at the sky to record passing clouds as timelapse sequences, the best of which I compiled into a single video: I uploaded the video to Google, left it open to saving and embedding for anyone who might want […]
