Video Blog Post



For the first time ever, a video blog from yours truly. I'm embarassed! It includes a few out-takes and a commentary. I hope you enjoy, and please, spare the tomatoes.

I think the bumpy road won me over... and what was the flower/mushroom/thing?! (I guess it's referenced in another blog entry, but...)

Again! More!

(You Americans don't use 'encore', right? :P)

tsk tsk sebby, ron is CANADIAN!! OMG Ron, this vlog owns!! VERY impressive "first vlog". pro stuff!! makes my vlogs look so amateur. great shots. wow, even yr filmmaking is artistic and beautiful :) love that you use voiceover. best line. "maybe they still think i'm in the bathroom."

Sebastian said...

And of course, Canadians use 'encore' because of their French population...!

Absolutely amazing!!!!!

I gotta know more about that mushroom flower thing too :)

Seriously...you are amazing. Your images are amazing. Did I mention amazing yet?

The Rambler said...

One more time.

Amazing :)

Ron said...

Thanks everyone. I can't tell you how much your comments mean to me. I'm glad you've enjoyed it.

Seb/Rambler: That flower is called the Rafflesia. It's the worlds largest flower and it's going extinct. I was in the jungles of Malaysia a few months ago looking for it. And after about 5 hours of hiking up hill from base camp, we finally found one in the jungle. That's when i had all those leeches and snakes chasing after me.

Floreta: Hey, your vlogs are great! Atlest you have the courage to be in front of the camera, whereas for me, I use a voice over because I'd never be able to talk with a camera in my face. I'm a coward that way :p

Dying to view it, Ron! I'm on such a bad connection here that I cannot play the video. Looking forward to seeing it in a few days!

And I will answer those great questions you asked the other day! They are good questions without easy answers, but I'll give you my best attempt.

Be well.

This was so much fun to watch. Really. Your images are so captivating. It was great! Worried that they think you're still in the bathroom... ha. I'm sure everyone notices when you leave, Ron. You should definitely keep up the vlogs!
