Frolicking Fun Friday: Painting with Fire Part 2



YouTube video (Vancouver Music Video Production by Hemstock Films: http://www.hemstockfilms.com, http://www.facebook.com/hemstockfilms, Artist: Deorro Song: Five Hours Website)

Eureka! My friend Linda who came with me to see this group two weeks ago at the Shipyards farmer's market in North Vancouver BC, sent me this video. It is of the same group of fire performances (except for one female) at one of the beaches in Vancouver, BC. I had posted photos that didn't do their performances any justice, "Frolicking Fun Friday: Painting with Fire" (http://xpressyouressence.blogspot.ca/2014/09/frolicking-fun-friday-painting-with-fire.html)

Wow! Isn't that more like it? Doesn't video just make performances more alive?

What do you prefer: photos or videos and for what context? How does the essence of the image/experience differ? Does your essence change: do you think/feel any differently when viewing them?

  1. It's lovely how you enliven your blogs with such brilliant images and videos. I feel both are good mediums and it all depends on the matter discussed. For example, for this very post an image would hardly have done any justice, while for your post on supermoon, the image was most apt. :)

    1. Thanks Asma. :) For sure, I agree. I felt like I didn't know what question to ask and that one came up, though perhaps not the best? ;) <3

    1. Sounds like you enjoyed it as much as I did Usha! Though can you imagine it as a live performance close up, front and centre like I was? Even way more cool! ;) <3
