My mother-in-law owns a small island, off a larger island, off Vancouver island. We go there to unplug twice a year. We were on our way back when David posted the “Before and After” challenge, #100. How timely! We had just finished painting the inside of our little off-grid, rain-water and propane-driven cabin.
This interaction is for my family, so they can see the paint job we did in “Granpa’s Cabin.”
To save time, I tried to recreate Michael Hinze’s example of the Berlin Wall, which I thought was just brilliant! I’ve never worked with sliders before and this was a great introduction, although no triggers were necessary. That Michael is a clever dude. I’m sure I’ll be using more sliders in the future!
To get this to work, I had to really study Michael’s screenshot and blog post.
The After picture goes on the bottom; on a regular slide. The Before picture is the fill for the slider thumb. That’s thinking outside the box! I love learning tricks like this.
Here’s the interaction.
And here’s the STORY file.
One Year Later…
We were back at the cabin again this September and I had a new camera! I wanted to try a timelapse video of the tide coming in. On sunny, warm days we sit on the dock, read and watch the tide come in. It’s a REAL vacation!
With the first photo and last photo, I thought I’d try to recreate the Before&After I made a year ago and it turned out quite well, I think. (The photography isn’t that great. I’ve signed up for a course to brush up on my photography skills.)
Here’s the Tide video and interaction.
