AARP Drum Circle

  • Caught this using my little Nikon Coolpix, a handheld still camera with some video capability. The escalator ride seemed like a good idea at the time, but obviously I should have ridden it down first and then done the long dolly out at the end. Oh well. Busby Berkeley, I ain’t, but I’m pretty good on the rattle.

    The drum circle was constantly changing. This crowd is smaller than some, and this was the last afternoon of the convention so the Orange County Convention Center had already started to clear out.

      Thanks for sharing. I can feel the good energy coming through.

      It’s becomes trance-like after the first minute or so…nice.

      Hey, I have a Nikon Coolpix – have had it for about four years and had no idea there’s video capability. I’ll have to check it out.

        Mine is called a “Coolpix L1″ and has a little silver switch above the viewfinder with a picture of a still camera to the left and a vid camera to the right. Worked well for the close in shots, I thoughts, and the microphone wasn’t too bad either!

      AARP drum circle. It’s gonna take me a while to get used to this idea. Okay, so, I guess once we get old and join AARP, we can do this kind of stuff in a convention center, without getting arrested, as probably would have happened when we were say, twenty.
      Mine is a Coolpix L3. I had it for several years before I accidentally discovered the video capability. Now when I go see my grandkids the first thing they want to see is what videos I have on my camera. I do little movies of chickens, snakes, ponies, dogs, crawling bugs. They love it. Funny what kids get off on.
