Fire on the heath!


Here are a couple of videos of the bushfire in Blackheath last Monday, on the corner of Maze Hill and Charlton Way. The video above is before the fire brigade arrived, and the one below is afterwards.

Many thanks to Rebecca who sent them in. She says that the fire brigade arrived just in time. It spread from about a meter square to this size in minutes.

Melting Spires


Every day, twitter user @blkheath takes a photo of the All Saints church on the heath. I’ve realigned them so that the spire of the church is at the same position in each image. Then I timestretched the video to see what the effect would be. Hope you like it (images used with permission).

Blackheath Fireworks in 3D


All the Blackheath fireworks videos I’ve been able to find are wobbly. I spend quite a lot of time each year looking through them, because I’ve never managed to go to the event itself! I couldn’t find any professionally shot clips on YouTube. Even Lewisham council’s preview trailer is wobbly.

So, if you’ve got to have wobbly, at least you can have wobbly in 3D. Hit play, then click on the 3D button to change the viewing method. If you haven’t got any red-cyan glasses, then your best bet is to set it to “side by side”, don’t watch in full screen mode, and cross your eyes a bit. Avatar it ain’t, but it’s still quite neat. See also: the classic Blackheath footage of Ollie the Dog in 3D (fewer explosions, more woofing).

The Point Blackheath


Beautiful video by Soma on Vimeo. Can’t tell if it’s time-lapse or not. Makes me think it’s time to start running up there again…

Glad to see some people brave the cold to stand up for what they believe in. Hope it saves the libraries.
