Freezing Frames with a Flip

New hardware is less and less a challenge these days. My Flip camera throws all of the easy instructions right onto the face of my computer and on a second (maybe third) reading of most of the instructions, I am ready to roll. Artists don't give up.

These freeze frames of videos of the granddaughters on the monkey bars are an inspiration for sculpture and painting. It is not easy to catch models in action like this...just the pose you want.

Swing down to click on each of the photos to enlarge.


  1. Too fun! Makes me wish I had had a flip camera while MY grandkids were coming down the Alpine Slide today! Or even better, doing the bungee jumping1

  2. Those are delightful! How I wish I could do that and not end up in the hospital in traction!

  3. I love Hannah's form. She looks like a pro. My favorite picture is the fourth one where Erika has her mouth open in anticipation and effort.
