Time Lapse in New York City

We took the family to New York for a week and got a nice apartment on the 29th floor in the east village.

It had an amazing view of the uptown skyline.. the Empire State Building, the Chrysler building and the Met Life Tower

were right there out the window...

I had the camera clicking most of the time we were there.


NOTE: I'm still working on improving the flash video quality... so, with a little luck, these will get better..

Here's a timelapse of the New York Skyline out of the living room window.

I cranked up CHDK on my Powershot A560, and it clicked every 30 seconds at medium resolution... I wanted to get 24 hrs uninterrupted on my 4gb sd card.

The Clock on the Met Life Tower.

While I was working on the skyline timelapse, the second day, I didn't check the resolution, and ended up with a series of high res shots... (unfortunately the SD card filled up at about 3:40am)  I took these and cropped out the clock in the Met Life Insurance Tower, and made this one...

Kind of cool, you can see the crane and the construction elevators working on the building to the left. and the flags flying in the forground.

I uploaded the flash video directly for this one, so there's no high res version...

The Corner of Bleeker and La Guardia

I set the camera up in another window looking down at the corner of Bleeker and La Guardia in the east village. I thought it would be cool to get a more detailed view of life in the city, so I clicked every 5 seconds for 2 solid days... 16,000+ shots...  Turns out life in front of Senior Swanky's just goes by pretty dang fast... 90 miles an hour, girl, is the speed I drive..
