Solving the mysterious light in Blarney

Back in 2013 local school children created a “flash mob” and danced in the village square in Blarney. Local photographer Pat Falvey was on hand to capture the scene on video.

Near the start of the video he noticed a flash of light coming from a woman on the right of the frame. You might have to watch the start of it a few times as it flashes by in about 1.5 seconds. Intrigued, I took a closer look.

Using this site I watched the video frame by frame. You can see an object appear on the right:

In the next frame it’s after moving over a little bit.

And again, it has moved.

Using my advanced photography skills I cropped the location of the object to isolate it and zoom in:

I thought I could see something there now but it needed further enhancement …

OH WOW! I couldn’t believe it! I thought it was just a leaf but Blarney had been visited by the Starship Enterprise and nobody had even noticed! I was there that day and it had completely escaped my notice!

It was a seed actually. It was one of those seeds with wings. We used to call them helicopter seeds but they’re the seeds of the Maple tree apparently. You can see the seed flutter to the ground after a few frames.

Greetings,

Seems legit, but what happens if you put negative words on water bottles? That would be a nasty trick to play on someone you don’t like!

The Dangers of Selfie Sticks PSA

Thankfully I’ve only ever come across selfie sticks in the grounds of Blarney Castle where there’s plenty of room.

I hope the sales of monopods hasn’t been hurt as photographer’s rushed to not be associated with this devilish device!
