Time-lapse Sunflowers

Here’s a time-lapse video of a lilac tree and some sunflowers growing in a corner of my backyard from May 3 to October 16 of this year. I took one photo just about every day. The video is 30 seconds long, but only about 10 seconds are time-lapsed. In that portion of the video, one month goes by in about 2 seconds. The time-lapse effect is more impressive, I suppose, if you focus on a specific flower or a tree beside the fence — but something specific. I stopped taking the photos on October 16, 2009, when a storm destroyed all the sunflowers.

I DECIDED TO REMOVE THE VIDEO BECAUSE IT CONTAINS SOME PHILIP GLASS MUSIC AND I DON’T WANT TO GET SUED BY SONY MUSIC OR WHATEVER MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATION THAT HAPPENS TO OWN THE RIGHTS TO THE MUSIC.
