When hummingbirds come back


click for: Quicktime version / Flash version

"These are the days when Birds come back/A very few/ a Bird or two/To take a backward look//These are the days when skies resume/The old, old sophistries of June /A blue and gold mistake// Oh fraud that cannot cheat the Bee / Almost thy plausibility/ Induces my belief// Till ranks of seeds their witness bear /And softly thro' the altered air/Hurries a timid leaf//Oh Sacrament of summer days/Oh Last Communion in the Haze/Permit a child to join//Thy sacred emblems to partake/They consecrated bread to take/And thine immortal wine!//"

Indulging in a moment of nostalgia over a pixelfest not attended, Sam Renseiw captured footage of another, quiet fest-closing near Dragør, on late Sunday afternoon, musing about the screenings of some videos near the Pacific; And: Sam would have loved to walk the line too.

That was one of the most intensely beautiful things I've seen. You are my new favorite videoblog, which is quite a statement, coming from me. Bravo.
