Toronto Time-Lapse

Toronto Time-Lapse

English: Night lapse of the 401. Even at 9:30p...

The kids love a trip into the big smoke, especially if we decide to take the GO train, but once you’re there it can sometimes be difficult to see the beauty in the unforgiving concrete and bustling crowds. Next time I find myself exasperated on a Toronto sidewalk with moaning children and an absent sense of direction, I’ll try to remember the beauty that surrounds me when viewed from a different angle and remind myself that I’m one small part of a living, breathing bigger picture…

  1. I love human creativity. These are cool! It was weird (in a good way) how some of the shots in the first one almost looked like toy models. Hard to explain what I mean.
