I have finally got around to putting some slideshows on YouTube. So far the total number of videos that I have posted is three, the total number of views is 196, and the total subscriber number is one. Hopefully those numbers will tick up in the coming months. I am planning to post roughly one new video a week, mostly slide shows but with the occasional ‘how to’ and opinion piece thrown in for good measure.

This video is the first one that I compiled and the only one that I haven’t posted on this blog as of yet. It is pretty rough, especially the end where the music cuts off abruptly rather than fades out. I would correct this if I could but there seems to be no way to do this other then deleting the whole video from Youtube and re-uploading. This would break all the links to this video from elsewhere on the web.
The photographs are outdoor shots, lots of rust, peeling paint and the suchlike but with the difference that many of the shots are close ups/macros.
This and the other videos can be found on my YouTube channel MP101TV While you are there please consider subscribing – having a solitary subscriber is pretty embarrassing.
The music on all of the videos is provided by musicians under a creative commons license which basically means that I get to use the music completely free of charge albeit, sometimes with some very reasonable conditions attached . I cannot thank these musicians enough.
This was the second video and features an assortment of shots with no real underlying theme other than that they are all black and white. The music used is a wonderful song by Snowflake aka Emily Richards called Dance in the Rain (Breaking Down).See the video with Emily’s audio here and more of her music here.
This is the most recent video and unlike the previous one it has a definite theme. All of the photographs are of cable and wires and were shot using a Nikon d40x and a fast 50mm lens. This is the first video where the audio doesn’t end abruptly.
Anyway, that is about where things stand. I intend to have another video up within the week so watch this space or subscribe here to this sites YouTube channel.
