Today I had to run some errands and bored in the public transport I decided to play with my Pentax MX-1 newly discovered Slow Motion video capability and ability to apply filters onto video (in this case Black and White with a Blue filter). So here's some random video captures in slomo on the street. Shot from the hip, of course, street photography style. Added my own track to it as the silent movie era is long gone. Although the camera only captures slomo in VGA mode (640x480) and only 15s at a time, it's still pretty awesome in terms of image quality (which I hope won't be lost on upload here).

London 29/01/10 - Former Prime Minister Tony Blair was called today to take the stand as a witness at the Iraq War Inquiry among public outcry and protests, on the 29th of JanuaryThe former PM took to the stand as protesters outside the heavily guarded Queen Elizabeth Center II called for Mr Blair to make a defendant and to be taken to The Hague as a war criminal. Amongst the audience were family members of soldiers who lost their lives in the war.
Mr Blair's testimony caused upset among the families and many walked out of the Inquiry and a protester, Mr Gabriel Carlyle from Hastings, who gained access to the Inquiry room attempted to, in his words, conduct a citizen's arrest of a criminal. Mr Blair's testimony caused further outrage with the admission that he would have taken the same decision of going to war again if put in the same position. The protests continued to the end of the day and further protests awaited the former Prime Minister as he made his way out. The Inquiry continues until February this year
