Around Tohoku in Two Minutes

Last year I visited Tohoku – the north of the main island of Japan – with my big old camera, and took a lot of pictures. This week, Helen’s off on a trip, so I went to empty the biggest memory card I own for her – and found the 975 photos I took still sitting there in sequence.

Flicking through, I noticed that they form a sort of flippad-like video – I tend to take photos in bursts of three or four – so here’s a little experiment. All 975 unprocessed images were stitched together in Premiere to make this composite. showing, roughly: Tokyo, Sendai, Yama-dera, Matsushima, Morioka, Tazawa, Hirosaki, Aomori, Aizu-Wakamatsu and back to Tokyo.

I thought the result was quite nice, so I’m sharing it here. If you fancy visiting Tohoku – and please do, it’s lovely, and in need of tourism after the earthquake – I’ve written a guide, here.
