Day 10

My city Jelgava

There’s something great about living in a small town. You can easily walk around the whole town in a day. As you walk the streets, You most likely will meet someone you know. There’s minimal rush hour traffic. You tend to feel like a part of the community instead of being lost in a crowd.

Whenever I’m out on my walks or bike rides I have been collecting various shots of the landmarks around the town. And today I had yet another idea of trying something out I haven’t done before. I’ve done a few time-lapses but by adding movement to the camera they become even more interesting to watch and then they are called motion lapse. Keep in mind this video was done with my very basic camera setup. A cheap wide angle lens attachment that I picked up on my business trip to Sweden. My iPhone 7 and a Manfrotto mini tripod that I was holding in my hand while riding a bicycle.

After editing and uploading my video. I was surprised at how well it was received. people were sharing it and liking it non stop for a few days, I would say that at least half of the Jelgava population has seen it by looking at numbers.

My take away from this day is, people, like to feel a part of a group, a community and they share interests. My videos, in general, are like a surprise you never know what’s going to be in the next video or what it’s going to be about. I understand that if I want to be successful I should pick a theme and stick with it. That day is coming, for now, I’m practicing trying to learn all I can. I thank you for being a patient follower and supporting me in my journey with your likes and shares.
