Davenport-Milwaukee-Country Mile III



My brother got me a Canon G10 for shooting his wedding. I wanted to use the video function to make little videos of my time spent on the road. I started off by shooting a lot of video but figured what's the point.... I don't even have time to wipe my own ass let alone try dick'n around with video. I'm glad i did shoot that video because the long winter has really begun to make me crazy and to look back and see video of your best friends riding along side you in a T-shirt is for some reason comforting.

I shot this footage on the trip I took to Davenport Iowa then to Milwaukee Wisconsin then around Lake Michigan. Most of the footage is in between Davenport and Milwaukee. I stopped filming as much on The Country Mile and I wish I would have had it rolling more. Now that I know how to upload video you might start seeing more action video.

I hope this doesn't give you a headache.

Awesome. It really does make a person heartened for the promise of Spring, basking in the sun, and time with good friends.

Fuck, that actually looks really good for a G10. Is the music the Black Angels?

Yeah.... I never expected what I got out of the G10. I was really into the video idea some time ago but never really had the time to mess around with it. Now I look back on moments last summer that I neglected to video because I thought the quality wouldn't be up to par and wished I had been roll'n. I wanna mess around with other programs and put out more of these in the future. I'm hoping to upgrade my 5D to a 5D Mark II which shoots amazing video. I have lots of riding planned this summer so I'm stoked on the idea. I've been sick as hell the last week so it was a great escape.

Yes.... the music is by The Black Angels. I never really listened to them but accidentally clicked on them as I was messing around with the video clips. It worked out well and have been listening to them ever since. By the way does anyone know how to get the artist to pop up as the video plays. I'd like to give credit where credit is do. My photos have been ripped so many times I'm understanding to the fact that I have done exactly what so many have done to me. I would like to give them more credit.

thanks, josh

Josh, those pop ups come on when you tubes inner workings detect a song that they have decoded or some shit like that. Louie gave me the low, but I believe that if they don't have the song registered in their database then it won't get detected or pop-up.
