Toronto Time-lapse

Toronto gets another epic timelapse sequence

It's probably not necessary to repeat how much I like a solid timelapse. Cinematic and slick, the good ones cast Toronto in an intriguing light that tends to renew one's appreciation for just how photogenic this city can be when the right people are tripping the shutter. One of those people is Ben Lean (a.k.a. *Imperialis*), whose previous efforts Time Travel and Cherry Ice are some of the best timelapse sequences of Toronto that I've seen.

His newest video keeps up the trend. Marked by an epic soundtrack — Clint Mansell's
"Requiem for a Dream (Orchestral Version)" — the photographer takes us on a tour of Toronto between July and early October that's made up of tens of thousands of individual photos, a number of which are pretty majestic in their own right (i.e. the image above). Needless to say, it's a lot of work to put one of these things together, so check out the fruits of his labour!
