Will someone do a time-lapse of approaching a city from water?
« on: January 29, 2013, 03:07:39 PM »
Go-pros are amazzzzzing and I think someone should do a time-lapse sorta like this picture but obviously longer, of approaching a city from a boat.



I'm stuck on this island for 6 months so I can't do it.  I'm hoping someone that lives near Lake Michigan or Toronto or something...

Thanks!

I just noticed it seems part of what I wrote disappeared.  I wrote that I think it would be easy to discern between rising buildings or a wave obscuring the bottom of the buildings ("much like a nickel can obscure an elephant" as Tom Bishop would say).

I think this is #1 on feasible experiments.

Affordable - 10
Doable - 5 (must live or travel in the right location)
Skill level - Easy (Though it might take some skill to make it a smooth movie)

Equipment needed - Go pro camera preferred. Can do with a regular digital camera.  Tripod may be necessary.

You're the one on the island, why don't you do it?

For one: I am not leaving the island for a while...

2: When I do leave it is by airplane. Rarely by ferry. (But if I do take a ferry I will try my best but...*)

3:*the geography of southeast Alaska does not allow for a good study of long distances by water because there are too many mountains in the way.  In other words, your horizon is constantly covered up by mountains.

This would be an interesting experiment, FlatOrange.  Unfortunately, I now live, and have lived for the majority of my life, in river towns.  Most of the American flat-earthers I know of live in landlocked areas as well.  Perhaps you can appeal to the Australians, British Isles, or South African flat-earthers to preform this experiment.  Mind you though, this isn't some simple experiment.  It requires a bit of scheduling, planing, and money that may not be immediately apparent upon first glance.

Tom Bishop's unlikely theory has been explained away already. Here's the explanation...
