Our first field-trip is on the very near horizon. We will be heading out to a Greek Orthodox Monastery and a Museum that houses a large collection of religious icons. I'm really looking forward to it. And, I get to drive the van. I feel so grown up these days. I will be posting some pictures and video when I get back, so stay tuned for that.
I'm working on the next podcast for Bluedogwriter I have completed a new opening and closing for the podcast, in addition to addressing that annoying echo that was coming from the microphone. It's still not "studio-quality," but then podcasts rarely are--and it gives it that homemade feel. I baked this podcast from scratch, not some mix. I was bent over a red-hot microphone and boy are my vocals tired. You get the idea.
I have also started to play with video on the web. This is all part of my desire to work in mixed-media. You can check out a webcam video that I took by clicking here. I recently purchased a small hand-held video cam and will be playing with that over the field-trip. Bluedogwriter is going to be a multi-media web-experience for those who choose to visit.
