The Puffin and Nuffin'.

So what do I do when I get bored? I read poetry. And sometimes I find something that truly impresses me and start diving right through the air. Today's flight was inspired by the following little poem:

Upon this cake of ice is perched
The paddle-footed Puffin;
To find his double we have searched,
But have discovered – Nuffin!

~ Robert Williams Wood

(These photos didn't turn out that good - blurred, grainy, what have you when you crank your ISO to the maxx and try to make the camera understand what, in fact, it out to be focusing on. Adding them for the luls nevertheless.)


  1. You are mad, you are. That's a compliment.

    And in fact, I quite like the dark contrast and graininess. Very Booooooooooom, I should say.

  2. Thank you! I see a great deal of trouble for my madness. Imagine yourself making the bed after every second jump, then running to the camera and setting on the self-timer, climbing back on the bed and trying to time your jump accordingly. I REGRET NOTHING

  3. This is great! I love the flying effect :D

  4. Haha, I had a bit too much fun making this. :DDD I tried to arrange the photos in some kind of a meaningful order and now it looks a bit like I get zapped by a laser mid-flight and land accordingly... Glad you liked it!
