A major interest of mine is digital photography and video. At present I own a basic camera, but I can achieve some very impressive results with it. By using Windows Movie Maker, I have edited some of my old super 8 films and added a narrative. I have recorded these onto digital disc and sent them out to a few old friends. They have been extremely pleased with the end results. It’s a great way to keep momentos of the past, especially when you didn’t have sound way back in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
Recently, I have recorded a few digital videos, using my small digital camera. The sound is surprisingly good for a small camera with just a hole for a micrpohone.
To pursue an interest in old technology and ships, I joined the Sydney Heritage Fleet/National Australian Maritime Museum . It restores old steam powered marine vessels. I am starting my training as a trainee stoker in the boiler room.
