Ever wished you could rewind your entire life and watch it again?
Pummelvision…gives you a breathtakingly beautiful, painfully poignant, and utterly simple video summary of your life. It’s remarkable.
It’s just a few minutes, but we dare you not to be moved as you relive old apartments, boyfriends, girlfriends, just friends, jobs… You might even cry.
Pummelvision is the reason you’ve taken photos all these years. Go, go now.
I pummel’d the photos from my 2009 Europe trip, which you can see below or, preferably, watch in HD:
1665 pictures, 12 countries, 3 continents, and 9 weeks expressed in 3:42 seconds.
I keep thinking back to where I was this time last summer1. By this point, I had traveled to 5 countries and traveled over 10,000 miles as the crow flies. By this time, I was a well versed international spy traveler and having the time of my life figuring out all sorts of things and interacting with so many interesting people (always remembering the Prime Directive though). In many ways, I am where I thought I would be today; in many ways, I’m not. That’s okay though; planning is guessing.
Twice a month I get an email from Photojojo with the most interesting pictures I took from that time span the previous year last year; it’s the Photojojo’s Photo Time Capsule and it’s a great way to spend some time reflecting. For instance, May 30th of last year I was sailing in Puget Sound:
180.0 mm || 1/1600 || f/5.6 || ISO200 || NIKON D70 Manitou Beach, Washington, United States
A few days later, I was walking around Moscow, Russia:
70.0 mm || 1/125 || f/4.5 || ISO200 || NIKON D70 Moscow, Moscow Federal City, Russia
18.0 mm || 1/200 || f/8.0 || ISO200 || NIKON D70 Moscow, Moscow Federal City, Russia
29.0 mm || 1/320 || f/6.3 || ISO200 || NIKON D70 Moscow, Moscow Federal City, Russia
This is going to be a bitter sweet summer because for the next 8 weeks I’m going to be getting emails about how awesome my summer was last year….I better get working on making this summer amazing.
