Children waiting for the day, they feel good,
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher, tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me;
And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad world, mad world
Enlarge your world
#whpMOVEIT - because I'm 100% convinced that the concept of shooting timelapses attracts people to peacock their crazy in front of the tripod. This dude sheepishly grins as he zips past, apologizes, and I say 'it's nothing, this is a timelapse, barely a blip in the footage'. All good, no problems, happy world.
He cranes over, camera clicking away, and I explain the whole 1 frame/30 frames-per-sec deal, yadda yadda, he snaps a cell photo of the same composition and heads off.
And directly back in line with exactly what I'm shooting, as perfect in obliviousness as he was at misfortunate placement, for like 90 seconds as he texts away and writes an email longer than a damn CVS receipt or something. And vanishes back into the void of quizzical human behavior.
I never ask anyone to move, make a peep about annoyances, or warn them that a camera is rolling, because I love being an unbiased observer and recorder of the world... but seriously if this guy was a cat, he'd be the kind that passively sits on your open tray of eggs while you're hung over and trying to make an omelet.
