A Walk through Bukhara

Something of an experiment – this post is displayed via Youtube. All the words are there – they are found on slides and set to a wonderfully atmospheric piece of music.

Do let me know what you think of this as a way of presenting a post.

  1. I personally love it! Music is optional (as it depends on personal taste) but yeah, videos are the bee’s knees;)

  2. I like the idea of using video for some tips, thanks Andy. Would say that the subtitles need to be a bit more legible, please.

    Also that the music creds are up for longer. Agree with the previous poster that music is optional, but for those of us who love to discover sounds from places as we (consider) travel, perhaps make it easier for us to find out about the artists?

    Many thanks for the comments and will definitely take these on board for my next video venture. Agree that the subtitles can be hard to make out – I think the B&W format with white text wasn’t the best idea.
    About the music creds: I can’t be too confident about these. A friend bought me these CDs from Bukhara recently and as with most music in that part of the world the discs are ‘informally produced’. The names of artists and tracks are difficult to make out and I’ve even tried to search on the web for more information.
    Thanks again though – appreciate the feedback.

    Hi there,

    I really like the music, did a google search but couldn’t find it :(

    Personally, I think the music really adds to the presentation. I think I would prefer to see coloured photographs. It’s a nice way to present a blog/place.

    Thank you for sharing.
