Time-Lapse Shows the Passing of a Day in New York City in 100,000+ Photos

Time-lapse photographer Samuel Orr has completed a beautiful short film of New York City that shows the passing of a day in the Big Apple in a beautiful way.

Orr tells us,

On a visit to NYC a few years ago, I realized that the city changes as well, in ways that people don’t often notice, and thought it would be cool to make a short film about the city coming to life pre-dawn, commuters heading in, the activity of a day, and the reverse in the evening.

Over 100,000 still photographs went into making the piece (a few of the shots are sped-up video). Orr took four separate trips to NYC between 2011 and 2012, and shot the images using a Canon 7D, a Canon T3i, and a couple of Nikon Coolpix 5000 point and shoots. The total time spent photographing the city was six weeks.

Once he had the images he needed, Orr combined them into 30fps time-lapse videos and added “natural sounds of the city you’d hear from various vantages” to each segment, which he says is “lacking in nearly all time-lapse films.”

Still my favorite after all this time
