#monochrome

this was shot over two days as the camera battery died shortly into the first day (despite thinking i had plugged it in long enough to charge it). there were a lot more people on the road this weekend compared to a few weeks earlier when the beaches had just closed (where it felt like barely anyone was out).

i still did the drive all the way south both days.. driving to the beaches and back (and also out of the way east before heading home the second day), i drove a total of 208.7 miles, and was able to average 7.0 mi/kWh in my electric car (the equivalent of over 235 mpg). with electricity rates being lower in may (likely due to less demand, meaning less usage of dirty & expensive fossil fuel sources on the grid), the cost to do this drive was just over 1.5 cents per mile. gotta love electric vehicles (for many reasons).. i look forward to seeing the transition to renewable energy and clean transportation unfolding much more quickly than most people expected or imagined.

i planned the drive on the second day to get to a spot where i could mount the camera and start the time-lapse right around the same time of day that the first one stopped [it ended up being about 4 minutes later on sunday to drive past the same spot of the last shot on saturday], and luckily it was sunny both days and the camera position was similar enough on the mount/rig, so the jump between days is barely noticeable, even knowing when it happens in the video. this was shot using an lg 360 cam as it can do time-lapse intervals at 2 seconds rather than the 8 second minimum of the ricoh theta s camera i also have [i welcome donations or a gift of an insta360 one x, one r, or other newer 360 camera that has more capability and better quality for stills and video]. i also shot an infrared time-lapse parts of both days, though this is just the little planet shot, as davinci resolve kept giving an error during multiple hours-long attempts to render the whole video the past few days (and i’ve only used davinci resolve briefly a couple times so far, and need to figure out any of its quirks like this).

here’s a version with the full uncropped infrared images. the infrared time-lapse was shot with a raspberry pi noir camera board v2 with a lee 87c filter (that is causing some strange flare when the sun hits it, possibly as the flexible filter is bent/warped). [it looks like the failure during rendering that was happening before was due to davinci resolve still needing a significant amount of temporary space on the internal disk (which was low) despite specifying an external drive as the location to save the file.]

this last version has the infrared shots cropped to a widescreen aspect ratio. i had also thought about doing a cylindrical projection of the 360 degree shots in place of the stereographic little planet, though may save this for another shot where there are clouds in the sky.

as things begin to open back up, some people may want to go back to 'normal'. remember you can still remain at peace, and you can easily choose not to participate in the madness that the mass media-driven consumerism brings.  the more of us that choose not to participate in the chaotic old ways, the more quickly we can birth a new earth, where we all live in peace & harmony with each other & the planet.

if another presents a viewpoint in opposition to your own, rather than see them as wrong or try to defend your own view, learn to embrace the other's perspective and understand how one may have taken on that view.  when seeing and feeling others through the heart, we become more connected and can live together harmoniously, regardless of any differences in preferences or opinions that we may have.

learn to fully embrace & unconditionally love all aspects of yourself & others.  this alone will miraculously transform the world.

one way to remain calm and unafraid is to realize this life is but a dream, and as the dreamer of this strange dream, you can not die, but rather, simply wake up.

[took my #electriccar on a #drive through the #country and averaged 6.0 mi/kWh.. the whole drive, 41.7 miles over 74 minutes, cost less than $1 in electricity and added zero emissions to the areas i drove through.  the still images were shot using a #raspberrypi noir camera board v2 with lee 87c #infrared filter .. #timelapse #video #driving #ir #bw #blackandwhite #monochrome #grayscale #greyscale #rural #trees #clouds #sky #light #driveelectric #florida]

we are not here to follow the ways of life that anyone else dictates to us.

we are here to be creators of our own lives & our own reality.

we have the power and freedom to choose to live any way we choose.

we can choose love, peace, and compassion, over any separation or division that outside forces are causing or wanting us to experience.

while its often easy to just keep on going, constantly looking for the next thing to do, filling your day or distracting yourself from feeling what is here now, you'll eventually discover that simply pausing to take some deep breathes and relax into the present moment is quite healing.  from this place of eternal stillness, you'll see how much beauty and grace already exist around you (and within you), and realize you no longer need to chase after any external things or experiences (and you'll find yourself free from the chaos of the world).



remember, one must use discernment on the spiritual path (and in life). any higher being of the light whom truly wants to help you will only guide you toward your own growth, so you may realize who you truly are within.  any being whom requires you to do anything for their own agenda (or whom manipulates you by catering to your ego's desires) is false light and should not be trusted.

last monday, on the drive furthest north in my #electriccar [2020.03.02] .. some shots i quickly picked out on the phone from the timed interval shots i got, and edited in the #instagram #ios app.. black and white looked much better than color in the bad light (and could really look better if i were to spend more time to edit these on the computer) .. #nature #aerial #fromabove #lookingdown #water #florida #trees #flying #dji #mavic #mini #rc #quadcopter #drone #dronephotography #aerialphotography #blackandwhitephotography #overcast #cloudy #blackandwhite #bw #monochrome #grayscale #greyscale #planet #earth
