It was cloudy for much of the afternoon, which gave me an idea. As I was heading to the shower, I detoured out the front door. There, I placed my new $30 camcorder on the ground, facing up.
I showered, dressed and forgot it was there. Forty some odd minutes later, I went outside to retrieve it.
It only took a moment to move the video file from the camcorder, and a few minutes more to speed it up to make my time lapse.
Here’s the finished product. It’s not Earth shattering… except when you realize the universal availability of the technology to do this.
