A Time-lapse Video Of Chicago

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 12, 2012 10:00PM

This video features breathtaking views of the skyline, rivers, traffic, you name it. It's part of a series of videos called "Places in Time," created by Chris P. Zero. He writes:

All footage for this piece was shot between 2010 and now. My goal was to provide a glimpse into the energy and fast paced life of an average day in downtown Chicago, enhanced through fast motion timelapse. Some of the viewpoints and locations may seem familiar, but I’ve also tried to showcase the city from a number of different and less common vantage points.
