Getting your Sunday off to a slow start
A slow motion basset hound might strike some as redundant, like a lazy Sunday morning.
According to the information on YouTube that accompanies this video, Pluto is a a basset owned by Pawel Wiernikon, and the footage was shot using a Phantom HD with frame rates ranging from 300 to 500 frames per second, in case you care about that sort of thing.
What’s amazing about it though is, when you slow things down, all the previously unseen intricacies you see — the rippling folds of skin, the floppy jowls, the flapping fur, the drool being slung across the room.
Might the same be true of a lazy Sunday morning — that, by cutting down how many frames we try to squeeze into each second, we can notice a lot of things we hadn’t before?
A flower just starting to bloom? How the wind makes the grass ripple? A clump of dog hair under the sofa? A solution that has evaded us?
Just a thought.
