Category Archives: Filming While Walking

This is film taken as I walk along. Something I started to do quite a lot of. I enjoy the company of viewers on long walks to lose weight, and usually I engage in rambling monologues which oddly some of you seem to enjoy! At the same time there is the dimension of seeing a different place, a real-life moving canvas and the occasional interactions with people on the way. It’s one of my favorite formats and certainly among the easiest and least time-consuming to do as I would be walking anyway!

Some nice colour on this video again. We look at trout farms, watercress, beautifully composed village scenery and sheep in pasture. What’s not to love?

Don’t miss the images of Hertfordshire pudding stone (which is a real mineral by the way, not just a pleasantry) and the the English pub food in Gaddesden.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #9 – Architectural Turkish Delights!


Original playout date: 17 February 2008
Duration: 16:39

I remember this day in January 2016 as the first time I had walked a full 16 km since my youth. This corresponds o an early point in my now 11 year attempt to lose weight and gain strength in walking, which has been an up and down journey, but which has probably enabled me to live this long, as I was not in a good state before, unable to walk many kilometres, even just a few months prior to this.

Here are some of the lovey things I saw in the earlier part of that day after the church visit I had in the morning.
