New timelapse a celebration of iconic Toronto

Toronto's photographers and filmmakers have given us countless gorgeous views of the city, including some jaw-dropping time-lapse clips that breathe new life into our most beloved landmarks. The latest comes courtesy of French photographer Stephane Legrand, who's been living in Toronto for the past several years.

His film Hello Toronto is a hyper-realistic look at the city, from the grandeur of City Hall and U of T to the streetscapes of Parkdale; the smooth camera motion and careful focus makes Legrand's video look almost look like a CGI flyover or a tiny model city instead of a real-world timelapse (but, nope, we really do just look that good). Check out the full video below.
