Ahh. I love a good timelapse video…
If you want more like this – there are plenty of timelapses in the ol’ archives, and even another one from the International Space Station.
Timelapses are cool. This is a timelapse. This is cool.
Lasers are cool. This has lasers. This is cool.
This timelapse of the Milky Way is just stunning. I hope heaven has a button where you can just watch stuff timelapse style.
I think last time I posted one of these, or maybe the time before, someone quoted the first half of Psalm 19 on my Facebook wall. It’s a sensational bit of inspired poetry to be reflecting on while enjoying this sort of thing.
1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.
In other news I’m going all sentimental. Parenthood has changed me.
Thanks to Andrew for posting this video on the St. Eutychus Facebook page – I welcome your content suggestions, and that’s a great way to do it.
The former child star has been through a few iterations over the years.
This is just extraordinarily beautiful. It’s what Timelapses were designed to feature.
I’ve never been to Vietnam. Or Ho Chi Min City/Saigon… but this timelapse video of the frenetic traffic in the city is pretty amazing. Imagine learning the road rules…
We all like a good timelapse. Well. I like a good timelapse. Here’s one from outer space, looking at earth from a satellite.
Wow. What a storm. We just survived the craziest ever drive from Brisbane to Dalby. It rained. It poured. The old man snored… when we left college this afternoon the gutters almost kidnapped my thongs (as in footwear). A soaked walker asked to use my phone to call for a lift. You may have had enough of water for today. I haven’t. You may also have had enough beautiful timelapse photography. I haven’t.
So much beauty. I don’t normally go for proofs of God’s existence from the natural world, because I think Jesus is a better starting point, and that while the world is meant to reveal a creator Romans suggests its almost human nature to suppress that knowledge… But it’s hard to watch this and not believe in a designer.
I like clouds. I like timelapse. So it stands to reason that I’d like a timelapse video of clouds and would spend ten minutes of productive essay writing time watching this video. This gets all heavy and scary at about the eight minute mark.
There’s nothing all that special about taking a photo of yourself every day for a year as you grow facial hair (unless you’re like me and can’t really grow anything but fuzz). But turning it into a stop motion adventure is something new and exciting.
