About the Video:

After spending a week or two getting caught up on work here in Switzerland, I finally went out to do some shooting and exploring. And well my trip to Gruyeres was less about travel photography and more about just getting out and exploring a bit, I did manage to take a couple photos while I was at it.
Gruyeres is an interesting town. In many ways, it's very much like most other Swiss Medieval towns. But then, it's got this artsy under-current which, I believe, has a lot to do with the presence of H.R. Giger and the H.R. GIger museum and his famous "Alien Bar". The result is this really cool contrast. On the outside, you've got your castles, cobblestone, and old town squares. Then, on the inside, you've got alien art, the crazy alien bar, and lots of modern art.
Anyways, the trip to Gruyeres was great. I also got some fondue in me and explored a cheese factory. And, after 8 months in Asia relatively cheese-free, that was a welcome sight.
