There is something so special about time-lapse photography…watching events happen super-fast and people change in the blink of an eye. When the compilation is over, I find myself back in the now, feeling the gravity of each minute passing. It inspires me to do something special, to not let these minutes go by unacknowledged and unappreciated. Strangely, at the same time it grounds me, forces me to slow down and take it easy, to appreciate just sitting on my bed with my dog, watching his ears twitch at the sounds of birds chirping outside.
As dichotomous as these effects appear, the point is that this type of photography induces strong emotions and thoughts.
Take a moment to watch the time-lapse photography on this TED Blog post. I dare you to tell me you felt nothing.
