Oh New York, you really do capture the hearts of so many, don’t you? The entire time I was watching this video I couldn’t help but play Dave Matthews’ Ants Marching in my head. So I found the YouTube video for it. I suggest you try it—it’s pretty fitting:
“Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quieter time
Lights down, you up and die
Driving in on this highway
All these cars and upon the sidewalk
People in every direction
No words exchanged
No time to exchange
When all the little ants are marching
Red and black antennas waving
They all do it the same
They all do it the same way”
I cannot tell a lie—I’ve become obsessed. After spending the past $% minutes watching most of the videos from the TSO Photography site I posted earlier today, I had a revelation. Ready for it? Watching Video Wednesday! (And yes, for those of you wondering, I absolutely did just learn how to embed videos in WordPress. I am infinitely proud of myself).
Anyway, Watching Videos Wednesday it is! Except I simply have to post this additional video—Manhattan in Motion—today. Right now. Right this second. It’s too good to wait a whole other week. Mad props (seriously, humongous props) to Josh Owens at mindrelic.com for creating such an amazing masterpiece of Manhattan.
Okay, I’m sappy. I think this is cute. And if you happen to be visiting New York some time in the next month (which would mean you’re ignoring the recent fear about the rise in violence. Good for you!), you can actually check out this mural on Ave. A and 2nd St. that was put up by one cool dude asking his girlfriend to marry him.
Thank you Huffington Post for introducing me to the amazing video “The Arctic Light” (below). The entire video was shot in Lofoten, Norway, which consists of 7 islands and no more than 24,000 inhabitants, and lies on the same latitude as Greenland and Alaska. According to the post, the temperature in the spring hits about 60 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and drops 20 to 40 degrees once the sun sets.
