Here’s yet another time lapse of LA, this one by Russian videographer Vadim Tereshchenko. It’s short and pretty cool. Best seen in full screen high definition, which it looks like you’ll need to click over to Vimeo to get. To do that, or if the video doesn’t display for you, click here.

Today a couple of time lapses of Los Angeles. First, up, one called “Time-LAX.” If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
This next one is called “City Lights.” If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
Lastly a little political humor. When I was a kid I loved the cartoon Battle of the Planets, home of the original G-Force. (The show was an American edited and re-dubbed version of the anime series Science Nijna Team Gatchman). Well somebody channeled the spirit of those old cheesy 70s and 80s superhero series to create this funny spoof called “The Kronies.” Buy your action figures today.

This week some time lapses from smaller cities, Denver and Phoenix.
The first up is from Denver and is called “A Day in Denver.” If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. via Denver Infill
This is another one of Denver called “Breathless.” It isn’t per se a timelapse, though it contains time lapse segments. I’m told it was created as an intro video for TEDxMileHigh. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Jason Callegari
Next, here’s on called “The Valley” about Phoenix. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here. h/t Samuel Schleier

A group of 56 photographers took shots of 49 cities to produce this time lapse of China. It’s definitely best in full screen high definition. The middle section is more landscapy, but still very good. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
As you already know, I like to publish some sort of audio-visual piece on Wednesday. Since these are usually short pieces, I thought I’d try an experiment and start incorporating a little bit of curated content from outside the world of urbanism proper. Let me know what you think.
This week a song called “Shining Star” from Nneka, a German-Nigerian singer who performs R&B and other genres. It’s from her 2012 album Soul Is Heavy. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
If you like her, you can listen to more on this You Tube page.

This week’s video feature is a time lapse of Barcelona, an amazing city, by Alexandr Kravtsov. As always with these, I suggest full screen, high definition. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.

All I can say is – WOW. This spectacular time lapse of Chicago, the product of two years’ work by Max Wilson, is arguably the best time lapse I’ve ever seen of any city, anywhere. It’s a must watch. In full screen, high definition, of course. Chicago looks absolutely spectacular. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.

This week’s timelapse is a special one for me. As many of you know, I grew up in Southern Indiana near Louisville, so I’m delighted to be able to feature this time lapse of that city by Eric Stemem. It’s only two weeks old, but I’m using executive privilege to bump it to the front of the queue. It isn’t quite as cool as say many of the videos of Paris I’ve posted. But for a small city, this is very well done. The only major things that seem to be missing are the actual horses running at Churchill Downs and Thunder Over Louisville. Both could be timing or permissions issues. I particularly like that he actually includes a bit of decay in there. Full screen viewing recommended. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
There are too many folks to thank here for me to list them all. Let’s just say my inbox blew up with this thing this week.

Not long ago I posted a “funky” time lapse of Hong Kong. Here’s another one in a different style, from Miguel Vicente Garcia. It gets going pretty good after about 30 seconds. As always best viewed full screen. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
