The above photo is of a spot along a path right below our house on the way to Anto’s mom’s house. It’s a gorgeous path, and I have photographed it a few times since I got here.
About half-way down there is a small waterfall, in many ways the polar opposite of the Multnomah Falls, I have this referent point thanks to an image David Wiley posted from a hike he took the other day.
I took this 4 second video the other day with the idea of making a GIF.
The only problem with it was I am a shaky jake, so the GIF moves and it doesn’t work so well. So, I decided to limit it to two frames only to get rid of the shake. I was thinking it would create a stereo effect GIF. And while it does to some degree, it think of it more as a glitched waterfall—constantly stuck at a certain point not able to actually flow. A fascinating thought about nature—it can’t really glitch digitally, if that makes any sense.
It is a good reminder that every time you set out to make a GIF it’s a quick lesson in photography and motion. But the thing that keeps me coming back is the fun.
