Yesterday before today’s slush.
Ben Shepard called out to his friends on Facebook to gather in Washington Square Park to remember Pete Seeger and sing his songs in the cold, cold night.

I’m still not getting the results I want from this latest version of my steadycam. Once again I went to capture Tompkins Square Park in the snow. And once again it was fairly breezy, swinging the balance arm of the steadycam like a pendulum. That along with the slippery footing, and having my left hand holding an umbrella and unable to aid stability, produced less than optimal results. In the video above I let YouTube stabilize the footage. But I don’t think it helped the look of the video much as the process also much degrades the image quality. But this is good enough for blogging, and I got some nice shots of the frozen, nearly empty park.
A walk into the almost blizzard.
