Time Lapse Bridge Installation

Well this is super cool. It’s another great time lapse-video, but this one isn’t just made of sunrises and moody clouds. It’s a sort of preposterous thing: the transportation and installation of the new Willis Avenue Bridge in New York. Photographer Stephen Mallon made more than 30,000 still images and edited them together into this interesting and entertaining video of something not many of us would otherwise get to witness. And we certainly wouldn’t have been able to see it in quite this way. It looks like he went to extensive trouble to set up multiple cameras and multiple vantage points throughout the bridge’s long journey to its new home. Thanks to Rob Galbraith for pointing out this wonderful video.
