Gorgeous Time-lapse of North American Cities at Night

Between late 2010 and early 2011, photographer Dominic Boudreault visited Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Manhattan, and Chicago, shooting gorgeous images of the cityscapes at night using a Canon 5D Mark II. The images were then combined into this beautiful time-lapse video showing the hustle and bustle of highways, sidewalks, streets, and rivers.

    Reminds me of Koyaanisqatsi. If you haven’t seen that film, do! Score by Philip Glass:

    Music is the track titled “Paradox” from Hans Zimmer’s “Inception” score.

    It’s actually the track “Time” from the Inception score, but “Paradox” is damn good too!

    I think you’re right. I was skipping around inside the track and heard bits that matched up audibly, so I assumed it was that one track – but didn’t make it to the next track before I thought I had it.
