Return to “The Carnival Is Over” — In Video Form!

When I did the original article “The Carnival Is Over” back in April, I strung the photos I selected to the lyrics of an old Seekers song, and included a clip from an Australian television show at the bottom to give everyone the chance to hear the actual song, one of my favorites.

But I had all these photos that I shot — I try to take at least 15 photos for any session I do, other than landscape and candid work, so I can pick the best from the collection’s contact sheet for use in an article, as well as on Flickr.  And, while I was fiddling around the other day with things, I realized I have the tools to make a sort of video from all those photos; and so I said to myself, “Self,” I said, “you’re gonna make that video!”

The sad thing is that Mignonne region, where I did the camera work, is now closed and sunk beneath the tides of the Great Virtual Sea.  I wanted to go back and see if I could do some more work to better fill in the story, but that was now impossible.  However, I think I did a respectable, if not Oscar-worthy, effort with the 30 photos I did have, and I offer it to you for your enjoyment.  Please tell me what you think!

The Carnival is Over

The Carnival is Over 1

Say goodbye, my own true lover
As we sing a lover’s song

The Carnival is Over 5

How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone

The Carnival is Over 10

More of the lyrics, and a video of The Seekers, after you turn the page.
