  • Damage Limitation (A trip around Sri Lanka)

    10,651 views 4 years ago
    I met Laurence (England) and Diego (Chile) at Bangkok airport, the coincidence wanted that the three of us were going to Colombo (Sri Lanka), without any idea about how was going to be the country. We bought the tickets less than one week before the departure, doing Sri Lanka as a new part of our trips.

    In less than 5 days we start with "Damage Limitation", we had to do something, Laurence had a guitar and a huge talent for the music, Diego had fluency and attitude to transform the problems into anecdotes, I was shouldering the camera equipment enough for this new proyect and we all had the energy to make it real.

    45 shoots selected from around 70, traveled quite many hours, a lot of friends, 10 differents locations around the country and 3 weeks later, this is the result. Our point of view of Sri Lanka in a music travel video.

    We only have to say thank you to all of you who helped us to make it possible, all of you who crossed in our ways (or we in yours), all of you who were in the video or behind, supporting us. There are no words enough for so much gratitude.

    Special mention to Malévolo (www.malevolo.com), without the camera equipment they lend me for this trip surely it shouldn´t have been possible.

    The camera equipment:
    GoPro HD Hero
    Canon 600D
    Canon 50mm 1:1.4
    Canon 18-135mm 1:3.5_5.6
    Canon 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6
    Manfroto Tripod: COMPACT MKC3-H01

    Here the lyrics, written and singing by Laurence Parkin:

    It´s time to make up your mind
    I had to alter my life
    working myself up to it
    sacking off all commitments

    And no one ever said that, that it would last forever
    but I hope it sticks I´m getting used to this

    I´ve got my bag and guitar, I don´t need much it´s got me this far
    living life in this day and age, loving the change to life I´ve made

    And no one ever said that, that it would last forever
    but I hope it sticks me getting used to this

    It´s great waking up on a new day, I´ve got no plans this time it´s a guessing game
    I don´t know where I´ll be going next, close my eyes and point to the atlas

    And no one ever said he could live life quite this easy
    but I hope it sticks me getting used to this.

    It´s time to make up your mind
    I had to alter my life
    working myself up to it
    sacking off all commitments

    And no one ever said that, that it would last forever
    but I hope it sticks I´m getting used to this.
