Long Photos From Goa

I’ve become a big fan of ‘Long Photos’ as Flickr calls them…

Making videos is hard, but anyone can take long photos. And sometimes they just tell nice little stories.

Sunsets and palms. In the background you might just be able to make out some Russians talking. A sound that you’re starting to hear a lot more in that part of the world…

This year there’s not as many tourists as normal (economic crisis and fear of terrorism), so the guys who make their living selling on the beaches are having a tough time. It’s a bit sad.

This dog does not care about ‘long photos’ or Flickr, or anything…

Running Baba just runs the same stretch of road every day. Up and down, up and down. And it’s bloody hot. Someone should make an Indian Forest Gump movie. It’d be a Bollywood smash.

And of course I ate a lot of curry. Damn the curry was good…

There’s a couple more long photos in my Flickr set here.

I’m sure there’s lots of interesting things that can be done with them as a format. Looping them, combining them with text and stuff. It might all get a bit ‘multimedia CD-Rom’ circa 1996, but what’s so wrong with that…

Again mine were done on the trusty Kodak Zi6.

  1. Trying to find an excuse to use the Flickr video myself. We take way too many photos, so I thought compiling ALL the shots we take on a trip into a kinda time lapse. Gives a rough snatch of the entire trip: http://tinyurl.com/5ep658

  2. Cool – it’s like the photos they always have in the Harry Potter films, where the subject moves around for ten seconds or so…

    Presumably you could just upload these to wee digital photo frames, and recreate a Potter-esque gallery going up the stairs or something.
