London in 35,000 frames

On the 6th of December 2014, Triggertrap brought together more than 40 photographers for an exciting, one-off photography event. LapseLondon invited photographers to create an incredible crowdsourced timelapse video of London in just one day. The diversity, atmosphere, pace and buzz of the city make London the perfect canvas for any timelapse, and its unique flavour is captured over 80 clips in the LapseLondon film.
The 80 timelapse clips included in LapseLondon are composed of over 35,000 photographs shot over 40 hours, all within the same day.

This is just stunning. Click through to Vimeo, make sure it’s full-screen and HD is turned on.

Could we do something similar in Leeds?

Watching someone write out the alphabet (draw the alphabet?) is oddly soothing. Hat tip to Chip for the link.

BlackLetter was used throughout Europe from about 1150 until the end of the 17th century. One of my current preoccupations is developing a set of modern BlackLetter capitals that are highly legible, in BlackLetter terms, and yet retain the richness and beauty inherent in this ancient category of letterform. From time to time I will film clips like this to record my progress. Prints and originals available from http://www.seblester.co.uk. Music by Carlos Márquez, https://soundcloud.com/cmdigital
