Friday Fun, Continued

After we had finished surveying the stream (as detailed in my previous post), we did something that was pretty neat. First, we got out the big bucket of 6-inch, rusty staples. Using these, we stapled back the vegetation from the stream edge. The reason we were doing this was because we were going to get a large bucket of confetti and feed it into the stream (by hand) so that people watching from the top of the wall above us could take long-exposure photographs of the stream that would reveal the ways in which the water flows. Pinning back the vegetation gives the camera an unobstructed view of the water from bank to bank.

It was pretty fun, and kind of an unexpected thing to do. I don’t think I’ve ever actually thrown confetti before.

    Using confetti – quaint, but effective, I suppose.
