Blue Ball

Something different for a change …

As the sun drops lower with the advancing seasons we start to get some wonderful light in the kitchen and in the next room, which we often refer to as ‘The Sparkle Zone’. So-called because the crystals hanging in the window cast rainbows and other sparkly effects across the walls.

I’d not long finished a late breakfast and I was sitting at the kitchen table entranced by the play of light filtering through the trees and the kitchen window mesh screen. The shadows were forming wonderful dancing patterns on a blue (lacrosse) ball Ginger had left on the table. They really were moving as quickly as the video shows, it was fascinating to watch. So much so that I took the time to set up my tripod and record some short sequences of video.

I thought of video as I’ve recently finished shooting and editing this year’s Diocesan Convention video, which gives me the added advantage of still being vaguely familiar with the editing software.

You might be asking yourself why we have a lacrosse ball. It’s quite simple really. Ginger wedges the ball between her back and the wall and uses it to give herself an instant back massage. Apparently it is great for relieving back pain.

Of course, while I had the camera out I also took a couple of still images …
