Paris in Motion, Part Four

Mayeul Akpovi is out with the fourth installment of his “Paris in Motion” series of videos. Like the last ones, this is really good. It definitely should be watched in full screen high definition. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Likecool

If you missed them, here’s part one and part two (part three is a bit different and not as good and I didn’t post it). Akpovi also did a sweet video of Cotonou, Benin that’s a rare entry into the time lapse genre of an African city.

    Thank you Aaron for posting these whimsical videos of charming Paris; they bring back fond memories. I simply adore Paris every time I go; it’s my absolute favorite city in the world. My most memorable occasion there was dining with 12 friends and traveling companions at the stunning Jules Verne Restaurant atop the Eiffel Tower for New Years Eve at $500 per plate. The splendid dinner and spectacular view of the City of Lights was utterly dazzling and breathtaking, worth every single penny. Of course, the French champagne added to the euphoria, as well. If you haven’t done this, it’s a must.

    …then I come back to Los Angeles where there is nothing but palm trees, concrete and asphalt as far as the eye can see. And the only thing French here are “cul-de-sacs”.
