The GoPro Hero 4 Time Lapse feature is pretty cool.

I did a 60 second time lapse of us building our tent at Oldbury Hill campsite in Kent over the weekend.

It is quite a cool feature. I placed the GoPro Hero 4 Silver onto a tripod. Surprisingly it does not use a lot of space at all because all it is doing is taking one photo at time every 60 seconds.

Then a I did a 30 second time lapse of us pulling the tent down.

The GoPro Studio is quite clever in that it recognizes the photos as a time lapse sequence without the need for me to add them, thus saving some time.  It didn’t take long at all to make the above videos. I could have added sound and more text but for the short video there was need.

Goodbye 2014.

One way to judge a year, is to look back at all the photos one has taken during that year. Our 2014 album is full of wonderful locations and stories, which is surprising as it has been one of the busiest years ever.

The year kicked off with me saying farewell to CMA/S&P Capital IQ and the CDS markets. After 7 years I had achieved all I could and needed a new challenge. Fortunately I didn’t have to go far, as in the same building and also part of McGraw Hill Financials was Platts.

With the new role came a lot of new challenges as well as some travel, and my first business trips to Singapore, Houston and Atlanta. The first trip was for two weeks in Singapore, where my new colleagues filled my brain with commodities and oil knowledge and filled my stomach with good local food. 😉

Next up was a week in Houston to meet the team and to see how they worked in relation to Singapore and London. Our team interacts with a lot of people at Platts and I had to get to know how they worked. Of course there was a lot of eating as well. I could see a lot of similarities between Singapore and the Houston office. 🙂
