On Location with Steve B



Somewhere between Santa Cruz and Halfmoon Bay we came across these harbor seals just chillin’, California style.

Oh my!! We are becoming fancy aren't we!! Good going there Steve!! Congrats you passed your first test as a movie producer. :) I love the seal shots but how come they are so light in color? Ours are all black.

Very relaxing seal. Great!

How adorable! I would love to see sea lions that close up.

Eve said...

That was just great Steve! And the photos are beautiful too.

I loved the video and the fantastic seal pics. Reminded my of my wonderful trip to Southern California back in 2005. I got up as far as Morro Bay where we had fabulous views of Sea Otter! Thanks for these great posts!

Hi Joan, we have Harbor Seals here in central California. There are some darker "seals" up north. The California Sea Lion that we see having a good back scratch on the boat ramp in the video is black as well as the elephant seal. The Harbor Seal that we have here on in Gloucester Harbor looks very much like these Harbor Seals.

I've been resisting video cameras for decades. B picked up an inexpensive pocket video camera and had fun making a video for Smells Like Grape. Her's is a little more artistic because she had a concept in mind. I just threw together some scraps.

Thanks for the feedback Kim, Eve and Jenny. I wanted to show everyone just how hard I work (ha-ha-ha) on a photo shoot.

Steve B said...

Thanks Tabib, actually, I'm more relaxed when I've got a camera in my hand then at any other time.

Well, I've got to make my rounds tonight. My internet conncetion was down when I got home, so I'm a little behind. It's time to go see what eveyone else has posted.

Oh Oh OH! My jaw is still hanging open. I have a soft spot for seals, Steve. Your photos, your video, your music choice - ALL GRAND!

Thanks for a trip away from here tonight :o)

Bravo!

Mary

Thanks for the info Steve. My little P&S takes rather good videos the only problem being that it is in a format most people cant use if you do not have Quicktime Player. I cannot find a program here to do a conversion either.

Hi Mary,
I'm always glad to have you visit and delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

Hi Joan, I was blessed with extremely sharp vision, something that is going away. I have to wear my "grampy glasses" now. But I'm really fussy about my how my images are displayed. I don't have a lot of control with the video tool, but I think it was a fun little project to do on a cold New England night. I'm sure that there are better programs out there, but you may be talking about some serious $do-re-mi!

Somehow I missed this post. They certainly are chillin' aren't they! I don't think you could find more content faces within a hundred miles. Pure bliss for all of them.
