Time-lapse Tuesday (Videos)
It seems like every day a new time-lapse video surfaces on the Web. It's as if photographers have suddenly discovered the trick, even though it's been part of the photographer's stable since at least 1898 when the trick of taking multiple photographs of the same object then mushing them down into one short video was used in the movie "Carrefour De L'Opera."
Still there is a reason we keep coming back to make these films and to watch them. It's rather magical to see the passage of time in the span of a few minutes, leaving you with a sense of fragility of each passing minute. Or are they just pretty pictures and I really need to get some lunch?
You decide. Here's a roundup of some of the more unusual time-lapse videos making the rounds on the Internet these days.
