Oct 11th – Sorry for the delay in posting, but Thanksgiving related activities with family has kept me fairly busy. For my international followers, Monday is Canada’s day of Thanksgiving.

I also had to set aside time for getting to the advance voting polls for the Canadian Federal election. According to media reports, there has been a 34% increase in turn out from the previous election. I just voted a few hours ago and turnout was heavy.

With regards to art, I continue to work on sight and sound nature recordings. This week, I visited various locations in Oakville and Milton. Trying to find seasonal rural landscapes.

I am moving towards longer films that allow the viewer to get into the landscape and get a sense of the place. At the moment, I am striving for 10 minute films, but I would like to expand to 30 minutes. In theory, Youtube will allow you to have 15 minute or longer films if you are a creator in good standing.

I want to create blu-ray quality images combined with field recording quality sounds. If I am making the effort to create good quality sound recordings, I might as well create the visual images to go along with it.

So, that is where I am at the moment. Thanks for dropping by. Next week, I will try and post at my usually time of 8:30 am.
