Our First Time - a Revisit

It took me almost a year to do it, but this week, I did it. I put together all the video clips from our Sept. 2008 STJ vacation and made my first movie.

The process was tedious, and I learned I'm a better photographer than videographer, but it sure was nice to string together a bunch of short clips into a 30 minute revisit to STJ.

I made a DVD of the trip, and it worked nicely. My next task is to make a "web version" for my VInow.com friends to see.

And no, those were not tears on my face as I watched our vacation.... nope - not at all...

Your Pictures are AMAZING!!!! We didn't get over to St. John on our first visit to STT. We were very busy with wedding festivities for my daughter's wedding but hopefully we hill have another visit in the future! We did do a day sail to the BVI and that was fantastic! Thanks for sharing your pictures- again they are amazing!!!

Congrats on your movie! What better way to feel like you are actually there, even if for only 30 minutes. Now you can watch it over and over again, especially those times when you need a "virtual" vacation! Don't forget to make a Painkiller! 😉

You are an amazing photographer, I fell in love with a couple of your pictures, but all of them are truly beautiful.

Thank you for sharing!! Good to know I'm not the only one who takes missing the islands to heart! :$)
