“Cityscape Chicago” – The Must-See Timelapse

Chicago. Our hometown. And it’s simply beautiful. I love everything about this city.

That’s really all I have to say. I’m at a loss for words after watching this timelapse. Those are the thoughts runnin’ through my head.

Major shouts to Eric Hines. Here’s some more info on how he made the video… and a beautiful Chicago GIF to boot…

Please watch in Fullscreen & HD with sound for best quality.

Cityscape Chicago is a personal timelapse piece consisting of over 30,000 still photographs shot on the Canon 5D Mark III incrementally between July and October 2012 around downtown Chicago, Illinois.

The inspiration of this piece was my fascination with the city of Chicago, particularly at night. For me, there has always been a mysterious sort of feeling to Chicago at night, so I decided to explore and capture it.
