Epic Time Lapse Video of Manhattan in Spring

At this point you probably know that I am a sucker for a well-made time lapse video. The last one I posted to my blog has been viewed through StumbleUpon over 4,800 13,000+ times. Visitors to my site viewed it over 10,000 17,000 times in a single month!

So hats off to my cousin, photographer and Mizzou student, Ben Walton, who tweeted this today.

I recently spent a little over a month hotel hopping in Manhattan (March 12th to April 29th) shooting time lapse. These clips were pulled from over an hours worth of footage.

Prints available for purchase here.

And so now I’m kicking myself. I lived in hotels in San Francisco for 5 months and this concept never even popped into my head. Marketing hotels by taking shots of their beautiful interiors, yes. Taking advantage of their mind-blowing views as time lapse video? No.

This is genius and beautiful. I suppose it isn’t too late to do it here in San Francisco. Would be interesting the compare the landscape and cityscapes captured from these two coastal cities. So similar and yet so different.
