I have updated the ‘About’ page to include a photo that I mentioned in the text, but never actually inserted in the page. Oops…

Another 2 videos uploaded. Both are direct overhead shots. The first is a closeup of the knuckle couplers and magnets I use, and the second is a time lapse sequence just for a bit of fun! Enjoy!
