making films for you, i see things as if for the first time


I take this route to the store every day, and of course i never notice any of the things in this video.

It's great to stop and try to see ordinary things through fresh eyes.

I'd love to see *your* trip to get milk, coffee, whatever... see what I and others would find strange about what you take for granted. Are you game, my friends?

That letterbox... looks like a monument to some long gone, almost forgotten times.
John's Texas Chicken? Not very British, aye mate? :)

I find lots of things in England are like a monument to some long gone, forgotten times... like the class system! I know how you feel about going away though, Rupert. I lived in Japan and Italy in my early twenties and when I came back, everything was strange and unusual. Have a great time at Pixelodeon. Represent the British vloggers, of whom there seem to be, sadly, too few. Let me know if they are playing the promos there. Mine was a badly edited one with a foal trying to stand up.

Two comments on one post, blimey! Just wanted to add that when you get back from Pixelodeon, we should start to talk about a UK Node 101. Let's get this party started. Email me at beth_tilston@yahoo.co.uk.

they're also adding cameras to crossings and if you enter a yellow box without an exit, they'll sutomatically (!) fine you sixty quid!

you just made me all nostalgic for england.

I've been to England several times and consider myself a fairly well traveled person ... but somehow whenever I see street shots from England I still find myself looking for Dr. Who style police boxes ... and maybe even a Dalek or two.

ha! i loved this.
perfect "moments showing."
you're noticing things i would notice as an American - the roadster, the mailbox, the fish & chips - and say "oh how very British!" but we usually become blind to all that, seeing it everyday.

fresh eyes.
