Timelapse Junkie

I’m a timelapse junkie.  I like creating them, I like watching them, I find (good ones) absolutely stunning.  Not sure when this started but it is what it is.

Recently I’ve noticed a whole slew of them popping up on the ‘tubes and I thought I’d share a few of the good ones.   You’ve probably seen at least one or two of them.   I can watch them all over and over again though, and I’d bet I”m not the only one.

Corn Truck Cleanup

This past Tuesday A semi filled with corn tipped over on interstate 490 downtown.  Since the news didn’t have any up to date pictures I went searching for webcams that showed it.  Soon enough I found 2 that had decent shots of the incedent.  It took about 6 hours from the time of the accident before traffic resumed.  Just in time for rush hour.  So much for a speedy cleanup.  Since I’ve been in the mood for some timelapses lately, I used the WebCam Tracker I wrote a while back to grab some shots throughout the day.

Kinda interesting.  In the process I found a few things I need to do to the app to fix some annoyances.

Our First Christmas Tree Timelapse

We might have a new tradition.

While we decorated the tree this past Monday I setup the camera and had it take a shot every 5 seconds. Threw it together in a timelapse video and it didn’t come out half bad.  My favorite parts are the few times you can see the little monster jumping up and down, spinning and grinning.

Next years will be even more fun.
