If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a motion picture must be worth a million. We
all like still photographs because they capture a visual snapshot in time. A video, however,
not only captures the images we see, but the sounds we hear. The combination of the sites
and sounds makes the whole experience more  real to life. Below are some videos I filmed
in October 2005 my Canon PowerShot Pro 1 digital camera. The clips are about 4.5 MB,
and are about 30 seconds in length.

To view them you need Windows Media Player installed on your computer. Then click on
the Play button to start. For best viewing you will need a screen resolution of 1024 x 768
pixels or higher. Adjust your sound volume down as these clips do play loud. Note: the
video files has been compressed for web viewing which may cause some distortions in the
quality of the frames.
 The videos may play slowly until the files are fully loaded.
