A Piece of Summer

Here is a short clip I made at the ballpark that my Dad took me too. I wanted to capture the feeling of the event, but a clip only does so much. It doesn't convey the hot summer air pressing on you, or the smells of hot dogs and smoked turkey legs. The taste of the nachos and the soda, so integral to the experience, also aren't conveyed in video clips.

I start to appreciate the shallowness of experience that TV and video offers. While I intend to keep making clips like these, in an effort to improve my writing, I also need to remember the limitations of the medium.
