I love this stuff.
A timelapse video of the intersection in front of the Kyoto Tower Hotel taken from a room at the Hotel Granvia Kyoto. Shot with Canon EOS 7D. Individual frames processed / exported in Lightroom and lens-blurred with alpha channel depth map in Photoshop. Timelapse video created in Quicktime 7 Pro. Shot and processed to emulate tilt-shift miniaturization videos.
I took this timelapse from my window at the Hotel Granvia Kyoto. There was an excellent elevated walkway above the train station as well, but I didn't have time to shoot it.
Frames captured with Canon EOS 7D, processed/exported in Adobe Lightroom, and built into a video using Quicktime 7 Pro.
I created the timelapse by taking 1510 images at 3-second intervals using the Canon 5D Mark II, Sigma 20mm/f1.8 lens, ISO 1600, manual exposure. The camera ran out of batteries about 60 minutes before the end of the cruise. Also, I cut out about 5-6 seconds of the first tunnel because it was too much of the same.
> *All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi has been completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.*
> *The core of this project is in fact my website www.thelongestway.com where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.*
my little hydroponic herb garden: it's ALIVE!
**UPDATE** 5/24/09 - I built a new movie and replaced the one on this page. The herbs keep growing!
**UPDATE** 6/9/09 - Yet another update! The garden is prospering, although I left town for 2 weeks and had a couple problems. Firstly, I couldn't raise the lights so the tops of the fastgrowing herbs hit the lights and burned to a crisp. Secondly, the system ran out of water. I replenished the reservoir when I returned home, and all is well.
