Japanese Garden’s Running Brook

Some new video collages here. These were shot at the beautiful Japanese Garden next to the (ugh!) DWP water reclamation plant in Balboa Park in Van Nuys.

The first is more of an experimental mandala-esque view of the brook.

The second is just a longer view of the brook in a simpler form.

I guess I need to either;

1) get a cable release for the camera, if I can control the video button with it


2) spend the time to trim the small shakes that happen when I start and stop the camera

They seem to quake and vibrate, like the earth in California, or perhaps to breathe…

The park is near two airports too, so you hear the planes drown out the running water in the first one.
