Meeting Interesting People on the Hill:
(I didn't take any photo's of these people because that would've been rude)
Tania's 24Hr Walkathon:
I meet a really nice young lady named Tania, she had an extremely interesting story with a goal to walk over Wainuiomata Hill every day in 2018 and she achieved that WOW!!
She is doing a 24hour walkathon 15/02/2019 and I intend to support on that day. Check out her givealittle website. I'm going to shamelessly share this on all my social media.
2 really nice guys who stopped at the top of the hill to take some photos of Wellington Harbour. We had lengthy discussions on basically everything and it wasn't too religious in nature. I admire the sacrifices these guys take to come to our shores. One is from Texas, the other from Melbourne.
Very memorial day.

The using my very slightly modified bash script 3001.sh created a series of timelapses:-
1280x720p(HDTV) 30fps - 24.5MB

I'll leave this video up hoping one day I can get to see it in 4K. Meanwhile it's back to creating 1080p videos and timelapses :-)
Bash Script: 3001.sh
Download and copy (or move) this file into the BIN folder (Linux Mint).
This a a text file so you can read the instructions at the bottom of the file. Note I also had the open the BIN folder as ROOT in order to change the files permissions to "Allow this file to run as a program".
Now just go into the folder containing all your images and type 3001.sh, follow the prompts.
This script can be used on any folder containing images captured and stored by any devices. The Dazzne option was written to allow for images captured with 4:3 aspect ratio.
Another enjoyable ride, I'm well used to going down this route. There are some places where the road doesn't allow a car and a cyc...
