Travel theme: Wild

This post could be more accurately entitled Messing with Vine.  Since I downloaded the app to my iPod Touch I have been taking short movies of the inquisitive neighbours, a herd of restless bullocks in the adjacent field – turn on the sound and you will hear that one of them is quite vocal:

They don’t seem particularly wild but they do get annoyed when I try to stop them from consuming my hedge.  So in the spirit of this week’s theme I travelled a little further, to the front garden, and shot some wildflowers dancing on the wind.

I appreciate this is not Oscar material but I am thinking about entering the Turner Prize. Vine is a passing fad, I am sure I will get over it :-).  Click on the image if they stop moving/looping and/or run your mouse over the blank image if nothing appears – it seems a bit flaky at the moment.

    My goodness, how absolutely bucolic! I’d love to see a “vine” of those monsters attacking your hedge!

      Next time the little monsters start doing their worst I will catch them in the act and put up a post 🙂 ….before I attack them with a stick 🙂

    you made me smile with “They don’t seem particularly wild but they do get annoyed when I try to stop them from consuming my hedge.”

      Excellent, a result – it is good to make people smile across the ocean. Thanks for taking the time to look 🙂

      Thanks – they are great fun even if the results are not exactly Francis Ford Coppola 🙂

    The editor’s picks on Vine are hilarious. Enjoyed yours, especially the bovines!

      Agreed, there are some talented people out there in Vine land. Glad you enjoyed the bovine neighbours although I think my film technique needs some refinement. :-). Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment – much appreciated.

    Very nice, videos…now there’s a whole new area I haven’t looked at yet 🙂

      Thanks Seonaid – I recommend it – Vine is simple to use on IOS or Android and very easy to embed in WordPress.
