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.

Blackheath Fireworks 2010 Roundup

So yet again, Bugle-Dad-birthday (and a wedding to attend) meant that Mr & Mrs Bugle could not, and possibly will never manage to attend the biggest and best fireworks display held in their back garden (almost). So instead, to compensate I have re-lived the event by tragically staring into my laptop screen, whilst waving a sparkler. More below:

Lovely high definition video of the fireworks, from a Nokia phone (youtube user macintoshmorrisson)

An historical perspective on bonfire night in Blackheath from Andreas Moser, with links to more youtube videos.

“As far as I am aware, this is the only country that annually celebrates the failure of an assassination attempt on its head of state.”

When you put it like that, it does sound a bit odd…

Another HD video of the fireworks (no point in watching them at a lower rate!)

Great photo by Liam Hayter. Makes me wish I’d been there.

Blackheath fireworks were great. Lewisham Council showed Greenwich how to do it: big, not too long, no awful music. http://yfrog.com/eqt1hfj

All of Blackheath is engulfed in a thick low-lying smoke. Quite amazing, feels like a film set.

Blackheath fireworks. The best thing Lewisham Council does. http://twitpic.com/34joan

Apart from, you know, the schools, hospitals, GPs, libraries, etc etc :)

What were the skies like when you were young?


Lovely timelapse video of Blackheath at sunset, filmed and suggested by David Boyle, using a TrouserMac application called iTimelapse.
Previous example by KhE 龙.
Any my attempt back in July 2008.

Blackheath Bike and Kite Festival 2010


With the weather feeling sunnier, here’s something to cheer you up! The Blackheath Bike and Kite Festival is approaching (12th & 13th June), and Lewisham Council have made a video to promote it on their youtube channel (did you know they had a youtube channel?!).

If you fancy a stall, you can download the form and request one, if you’ve got between £100-£250 to spare. Looking forward to seeing SouthEastern’s stall….

Here are some photos and a video from the 2009 Bike and Kite Festival, in case you’d forgotten what it was like.
