Wednesday Whim - The Manhattan Project

video via Cameron Michael on Vimeo via Complex

There are two things you should know about me:
  1. I've been to New York City to visit but I've always, always, always dreamed about living there.
  2. I love photography. 
With that said this video (The Manhattan Project) made by documentary photographer, Cameron Michael, is a combination of both things that I have a fascination for. The video is a time-lapse video of New York City that takes the viewer on a virtual tour of the urban environment. It feels like you're a fly on the wall seeing everything that the city has to offer (good or bad - whichever your take is). It's a reality that feels like a dream, which makes me feel incredibly inspired. There truly is beauty in things that do not seem obvious. 

While the concept of a time-lapse video isn't new or particularly innovative (so to speak), the images are stunning and Cameron Michael succeeds in creating a dreamy New York City that could make anyone envious.

What do you think?


  1. what an amazing video! I've never been to new york but it seems like such a city full of life and character :)

    thank you, too, for stopping by and leaving such encouraging and sweet words on my last post. it means a lot to me that I'm not alone in this and there are others in the same boat :)
