Notes from Spain video: 3.5 minutes in the Retiro

The experiments in celluloid continue (aka Ben goes for a wander with his Canon Ixus!) Flamenco on a sunny afternoon in Madrid’s Retiro park… Forgive the wind at the beginning and dig those passer’s by! Direct video link

    Cool! Interesting that although the focus was on the singer the passers-by stole the show. Footwear in the Retiro. It’s good quality too – that little camera picked up all that?

    Wonderful!!!! You some captured the true essense of Retiro Park. I love it there. And I meant to have a go on the segways before my last visit and forgot all about it while was there. More please.

    Thanks all, glad you like it! I think I could probably get better quality yet from the ixus… Google makes it look a lot worse than the original… further experimentation required!

    Fantastic…. For a few moments, I really felt as if I was in Retiro park!The musician was very good too.I hope he is there next week when I am in Madrid!
    Keep experimenting,Ben.

    Another great experiment! I was begining to get worried that no-one would drop any Euro into the Case, then at the last moment, the nice old lady strolled over… and saved the day!

    Great video. I long for Spain, this video almost moved me to buy a ticket right away. 🙂

    What was with the look and the point at the end? Did he ask you to keep an eye on his guitar as he ran off for a bit?
