Four Random Minutes of Magdalena Playing

Just four random minutes of Magdalena playing in our front room. The camera work is a little shaky since this was taken on our still camera, not the video camera, which has stabilization on it. [local /wp-content/uploads/2009/03/magdalena_front_room.wmv nolink]
