Hey Ruth, I really enjoyed your film, it was nicely paced, well interspersed with the shots to camera and the shots you used were all really well composed both frame and depth wise, bringing good colour range in too. Editing was spot on and the dedication was sweet, you'll look back in ten years time fondly. Thanks for creating this!!!

Loved the flower shot, and the philosophy behind this short... reminds me of one I did called Nature all Around that was generally along the same lines, so I immediately took a liking. ;)

Also really good to hear your bringing new natureographers into the fold! Keep up the good work.

Life is what you make it Ruth, and it looks like you too make it great. Nice job.

I thought it was a great idea!!

I liked the single poignant script!! Nice.

The guitar in the background was awesome.

You films never dissappoint me. Actually they are an encouragement!!

Great Job.

You have a clever concept here Ruth. It is very well executed, beautiful clear images, good clear sound, well narrated by Robin. I think that we become so accustomed to our own backyard sometimes that we donít see the wonder in it.

Thanks for the comments.

Rob- It certainly isn't a major focus of these UWOL films, but it has occurred to me that what we do will be a lot more fun to watch in 10 years than most of our "standard" home video, since I am capturing the essence of Robin on tape.

Carl- Robin so far has been the on screen talent, but she has been showing more interest in camera work, so before long she may be competing with me :)

Eric- I guess that was the essence of this film- take nature where you find it, you don't need to look beyond your backyard for fun and excitement.

Dale- Thanks for your comments. The guitar really fit the piece, and I'm glad that it was able to enhance the mood of it for you. This was simpler than some of our previous UWOL scripts, but in spite of its simplicity, I thought Robin did a great job of bringing the idea to life.

Marj- Thanks for your comments. It's fun to have adventures off the beaten track, but realistically we spend most of our time at home, and the challenge is in finding excitement in the everyday.

Hey Ruth,
Great film! It really made me think about what adventure can be, & of course how so much to a child is infact a real adventure! Lovely shots of your garden, one of which i thought you held a little long, but for the rest it was well paced.

There's never enough hours in the day!
