Landcapes in Time-lapse
As I’ve arranged for projects both old and new to be photographed this season, I’ve been thinking a lot about how time is a critical component in landscape design. My experience of a landscape in Spring is vastly different from Fall, and my experience of a park in its first year of growth will be drastically different when I return 20 years later, as along as it was maintained well (or I guess even if it wasn’t!).
So when Steve Gierke sent this time-lapse film of Chicago by Chris Pritchard, which has been making its way around this week quite a bit, I was mezmerized. It takes a few minutes to load, but it’s worth the wait. See more about the project, called Places in Time, on Pritchard’s blog.
Along the same lines, but with a very different feel, are the brief, artsy time-lapse glimpses into Provence, France on the visitprovence.com website. It’s worth the second or two to orient yourself to the site’s whimsical navigation. At the bottom of the page, move the button over to ‘videos’ to see time-lapse views of the kind of places that make me wish I was French.
Don’t miss the sound on either of these!
