Walking to the river and back – a time lapse experiment

I tried a time-lapse video of walking from my house to the Nakagawa and back – about 1 km away. The whole trip was about 30 minutes, condensed to about 30 seconds. All I did was leave my iPhone in my pocket.

I don’t think I would actually call this a “success.” Maybe if the camera was pointed straight ahead the whole time it would seem a little less “psychedelic” and chaotic. If you have problems with sensory overload I don’t recommend watching this video.

But what the hey – it’s recorded, so online it goes!

Back in Tokyo, Monta seems happy, and there are some cherry blossoms still in full bloom!

I got back home a few hours ago. Monta seemed happy to see me. I noticed some sakura were still in bloom, so used my reserve strength to go on a bicycle ride along the Nakagawa. Most trees have had half or more of the cherry blossoms fall, but some are still in full bloom.
