Time Lapse – Mirror City

This is a beautiful, trippy, abstract, and wonderful visual story by Michael Shainblum, through some of the great American cities: Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. “These clips were all processed from their original form, into the kaleidoscopic visuals that you see in this video. Many people visit these large cities every day, and all of these places have been shot and filmed, but I wanted to emulate these urban landscapes in a way that nobody has even seen before. I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of colour and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.” (Vimeo)

He certainly succeeded! The music lends itself to the video very well too. It’s sometimes quite a challenge to see what the original shot is, especially in the shots with four (or more) parts and lots of movement in them. Excellent piece of time lapse photography. Onwards!
