A great timelapse is a labor of love, and photographer Cameron Michael‘s Manhattan Project is a result of the love he has for the incredible city of New York, or more specifically the island/borough of Manhattan. Never lacking in subject matter or diversity, the biggest challenge in making this video — the pictures for which were taken over the course of 5 months — was probably having to cart around 120+ pounds of equipment to each location. Well, either that or “getting around” a few laws in order to make some of the shots happen.
