In this beautiful time lapse video, Josh Owens (aka Mindrelic) shows us New York City as we’ve never seen it before. We begin with an unassuming shot of a boat in a harbor, but then the action picks up. We pass quickly through iconic landmarks of the city – Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Holland Tunnel, and the New York Stock Exchange – right before seeing the city from the vantage point of a passenger in an NYC cab.
The footage was shot over multiple days using the Canon 5d Mark II dSLR and the following lenses: Canon 14mm 2.8L, Canon 24mm 1.4L, Canon 50mm 1.2L, and Canon 70-200mm 2.8L. The video is one of the best time lapses out there, a stunning tribute to the city that never sleeps.
