And the Band Played On

The problem with video is finding a reliable uploader. Google spent four hours uploading my video and captured only two seconds of it. Youtube is still “uploading” and it has been over an hour. The video is only three minutes long! I am now trying Photobucket. Don’t hold your breaths for video.

Now — the photos — ugh. The band played on the fantail of the USS Missouri at high noon! All my pictures are light burned. My little point and shoot camera has no adjustment for bright sunlight or overcast days (I had a cheaper model which did, but Canon thinks it’s good enough to auto compensate. I have ruined photos that prove it isn’t so!)

An attempt to capture a photo of my favorite trumpet player.
He says he didn’t know he still had his phone attached to his ear.

  1. hehe, good luck with the video upload…
    the photos you showed are good… are you sure there are no options on your camera for setting the light? canons usually do have these things somewhere…

  2. Juliana — the video upload problem has been solved. It was an hours long ordeal that involved dropping a blob of chocolate frosting on the floor and some house cleaning. Don’t ask.

    Dr. John — be sorry no more — this video is up and I hope to offer the other tomorrow.

    Nessa — they sound better. Give them a listen. I got my problem solved!

  3. I have always used Photobucket for videos and it takes usually max 10 min for 2 min video. Besides Blogger itself which is awfully slow, I have never tried anything else. Hope it works for you too !
