Wesley Townsend Kitten – The City [VIDEO]

Check out this awesome time lapse photography edit of San Francisco! Very impressive!

This timelapse is about a year in the making. I started sometime in June of 2010 and finished it on August 19, 2011. It wasn’t constant work of course, just working on it every now and then. I’d estimate I have invested anywhere between 250 and 300 hours on it. Most of this was time I spent walking, biking, or riding the bus to locations I was shooting. There are very few locations I used a car to get to. Total frame count is about 28,000 frames and 85 different shots. All the frames weren’t used in the final product as I edited down the clips. You will notice that some of the shots were shaky. San Francisco is a very windy city and even my heavy tripod couldn’t remain still. In hindsight I should have bought a different head. All photos were shot in JPEG and then some light editing in Lightroom. Compiled into .mov clips in Quicktime Pro and then all brought together in Final Cut Pro.

I started this project because there are so many people photographing the city that I wanted to capture it in a different way that most were not. Between the time I started and the time I finished, timelapses have become huge. It’s amazing to see what fellow artists can make with even the most basic equipment.

Reebok Pro Pump Onmi Lite – San Francisco 49ers

This new colorway of Reebok’s classic Pump features an upper comprised of Grey wool, and Varsity Red leather set off by Gold accents.  The shoes also feature an NFL badge on the laces and the San Francisco 49ers logo on the heel.  Personally, I’m a big fan of both the colorway and the materials, however, I think the lace badge and heel logo make these shoes look cheap.  Check out some more pictures after the break and let me know if you agree or not.
