Our Morning Walk, For Posterity


Just when you thought it was safe -- more Olga-cam!

This video, made with our GoPro camera, shows a normal morning walk around our neighborhood. We leave the house, walk around the corner to busy Finchley Road, and then walk down an adjacent street, through a housing estate, along a pedestrian path to the high street, and then back home again.

Along the way we encounter various piles of trash (there are perpetually piles of trash lying around -- one of the curses of living in a big city, I suppose), we see two guys pushing a car onto a flatbed truck, we spar with a cat beneath a door, we drink from a dog bowl outside a bakery, we chase pigeons outside Tesco, we think about going into Sainsbury's, and we look for our nemesis through a hole in a gate.

Do you think you can stand the excitement?

Cool! And, I love the soundtrack, too...How are you enjoying the Joni Mitchell book?

Awesome choice of music. I'm a little disappointed that "we" did not drink out of the water dish, though - only Olga did :) I love your/Olga's videos.

I love the whole thing! What fun!

Ho-ho! I loved it! I like it best when Olga shakes her body and the camera goes kaleidoscopic for a moment. Excellent!

That was AMAZING! I never knew how hard stairs were, when you're only two feet off the ground. My favorite parts were the black and white paws at the 3:05 mark, and all the times sweet Olga stopped the world to catch a scent or a foe. This was so much fun to watch -- thank you.

I love how you stop and let her satisfy her never-ending curiosity over and over again. She pays attention to every smell, doesn't she? What a happy dog.

Oh boy, that was fun. I love it when she shakes and the camera goes kind of wild. I enjoyed the little sparring match with the cat and how she contemplated going into the grocery store. What fun!

That was a fun walk! I see we all liked when Olga shook her body, and we got to have a little trippy video experience!

That was fun! I love this, especially the cat paws batting under the grey doorway! I'll probably not get to walk any part of London, so this was a treat.

What fun! I also love when she shakes her whole body, and her Olga ears, and I especially love that little head tilt right at the end.

got a little psychedelic there a couple of times.

I can't believe how much I enjoyed that! It was so nice to watch Olga have her walk and that you were letting it be her walk.
