Grand Parade Ferris Wheel

I used Magic Lantern to shoot 30 photos of this scene yesterday evening and made a video of it with ffmpeg.

ffmpeg -framerate 2 -pattern_type glob -i “2015-12-13*.jpg” -vcodec libx264 -s 1920×1280 -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf fps=25 out.mp4

Combining them into one one photo looks like this..

A few days ago I had a chance to shoot the city and took the opportunity to get a higher vantage point to shoot the Ferris wheel on The Grand Parade.

I’ve decided to license this photo and any newer photos under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. This basically means you can do whatever you like with this photo, even commercial usage (although opportunities might be limited because of the web size of the file) as long as you credit me as the author and share the (altered?) photo under the same license.

You could if you were so inclined add little stick figures dangling from the gondolas in this photo, with one plummeting to it’s death while the others are rescued by their friends or a passing eagle. I’d be fine with that. I’d be very happy with that! Just remember to mention me and link back here. That’s all I ask.
