2022 is just around the corner. And, people are lining up in Times Square to snap pictures in front of the new “2022” sign. The sign will be moved to the top of One Times Square on the 23rd in preparation for the ball drop.
Last year the in-person celebration was cancelled because of Covid. As of now the celebration is still on for 2022. But, final determination will be announced the mayor by Christmas.
Times Square December 21st 2021
Early this morning (June 10th) there occurred an annular solar eclipse or “Ring of Fire.” This was best viewed from Canada, Greenland and Russia. But, here in Queens NY we were able to see a partial eclipse.
I was able to capture this partial “Ring of Fire” from my terrace. I hope you enjoy!
The year 2020 is behind us. A year like none in my memory. To keep from going crazy I started shooting timelapse sequences from the terrace of my apartment. I have good view. I’ve assembled some of my clips from the terrace and other places into a 2020 review.
I hope you enjoy.
Another road trip and another timelapse. Drove out to Robert Moses Park on a beautiful day and captured the sunset. It got chilly pretty fast after the sun wen down. I sent my wife back to the car to say warm.
This is a timelapse of sunset over New York City on Election Day 2020. Creating this video was less stressful than watching election returns come in.
Hi all,Hope you have been staying well during these trying times. I’ve continued to distract myself with creating timelapse and macro videos/photos. I’ve recently been studying Youtube videos of timelapse creators to help me refine my sunrise/sunset videos.
There are some technical challenges to capturing and displaying these type of videos. Here I present my latest effort. I like this one because it captures a lot of aircraft zooming around over upper Manhattan (very Blade Runneresque looking) and at the end you can see some *stars* appear over the city! Not something we city dwellers are used to seeing.
Hope you enjoy
I have been experimenting with creating timelapse video clips. I recently upped my game a bit by buying a motorized slider. I did some research and based on features and price I chose a slider from GVM the GT-80WD.
This timelapse uses the slider to capture storm clouds over Woodside in NYC.
Like many other New Yorkers since the city was hit with Covid-19 I’ve spent a lot of time staying home with my wife. To help pass the time I’ve started creating time lapse videos shot from the terrace of my coop.
I live in Queens and I have to say that I have a great view of upper Manhattan and the Bronx. Here is my latest time lapse that was created of the Labor Day weekend. The city enjoyed perfect weather for the holiday.
