Beautiful Time-lapse Shows the Hustle and Bustle of Manhattan

Photographer Josh Owens spent a little over a month staying at various hotels in Manhattan and shooting stills a Canon 5D Mark II and two 7Ds. He ended up with over an hour’s worth of time-lapse footage, which he whittled down into this stunning 4-minute video showing Manhattan in motion.

    Crazy cool.

    I have to say, this is the type of thing I love finding here—I for one could do without the camera cakes and paper cameras.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Technically beautiful, really good – but some time-lapse videos have that special magic which is not that present here, I think

    I agree about cupcakes etc! No more! This video is very good, alas having seen quite a few like this they are, I feel, let down by the music, the ‘beige music by numbers new age scores’ get on my nerves, a soundtrack should be something you could listen to on its own if it has any merit, I checked the website and almost screamed when I watched the landscape one complete with pan pipes and those infuriating vocals!
