Summer's Bloom ~ a video

Summer has officially begun, and I've had a lot more time to experiment and redevelop my creativity lately, which is a nice distraction from some of the heavier issues weighing on my mind. 

The video above is my first attempt at creating a slideshow using my photos AND putting it to music AND posting it on YouTube.  I've had a YT account for quite some time, but have never done anything with it till now.  The video ends abruptly and the song is cut short ~ I'm just glad I managed to figure out how to do it.  Of course now, I have the perfect song in mind  that would fit right in with the time frame....  "LittleTooLate" is my middle name, don'tcha know.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, for what it's worth.  The photos themselves seem blurrier than they do on the computer.  My desktop hard drive holds every digital photo I've ever taken, and is currently in the hands of the Geek Squad at Best Buy, so it's been theraputic to do something with the only photos I currently have on this PC. 

Happy Summer!

Very nicely done, Chelle! :)   I love all those beautiful flowers.  We don't see much of that out here in the desert.  Everything is so dry.  Lots of sand, rocks, dry grass, tumbleweeds, and did I say "dry grass?"  Yeah.  Anyway, the pics were awesome and I enjoyed the music that went with it!

You did a wonderful job hon. I'm delaying taking my computer back. It's the only one I have and I end up with serious withdrawal from not being able to get online. Gorgeous flowers. I've recently became quite fond of Red Poppy's I want to get some for my own garden. This was beautiful as is the spirit of the person who put it together. (Hugs)Indigo

It is lovely.  
< all back pats & affability.  
Seriously, I am glad you can "go creative" rather than constantly thinking heavy issues.
