The Circle of Life

I have a new video camera. This thing is amazing. Just starting to scratch the surface of what it can do, and along comes a Seasons of the Ukulele challenge that inspires me and provides an underlying theme from which I can go out and shoot some scenes at work and at the park near my home here in Bangkok.

I'm hoping you can guess the theme because normally, I wouldn't take footage of flower pots and fireplugs.

The song I'm covering is a bit out of my vocal range, but I hope I haven't butchered it too badly.

The sunset, the macro images, the couple play fighting on the park bench: my old camera wouldn't have captured these little bits of Thailand nearly as well as my new camera did. So looking forward to exploring its capabilities more fully.

  2. It means you aren't allowed to go fishing there. Thais love to fish.

  3. This makes me so glad that I realized at an early age I could not sing. ;-)
