A Beautiful 3,000 Photo Stop-Motion Tour of Greenfield Lake
Mike Bull and Jessica Thummel moved to Wilmington from Denver, Colorado and fell immediately in love with Greenfield lake.
After moving to Wilmington and having some trouble finding work, I needed a project to keep me sane and busy. Jessica and I were walking around the lake one day and she said, when we moved back to Denver, she was going to miss it: the trees, the Spanish moss, the turtle bridge, the whole four-mile view, so I came up with this as a way of taking Greenfield with us. We walked around the lake a couple hundred times and usually, I would bring my camera and capture a hundred yards at a time in three-step increments. I’m sure I looked strange doing it. Jessica said people would sometimes stare but I was busy trying to not to trip and fall (looking through a viewfinder severely limits your peripheral vision). She loves the end result, which was really the only goal, but I hope other people see and enjoy it too.
