Silent city

A city without bikes, cars, people.

A city without hustle and bustle. Without community. Activity. Life.

A city where neon flashes adverts when no-one is watching. A city where no courier is plying his trade.  

A city where traffic lights marshal absentee customers. Where  the pavement is free of the click clacking of heels and the elevated path no longer buzzes to bikes.

No bells twinkle here.

Only rolling clouds and stoic, impassive buildings remain.

Love this atmospheric and unnerving piece of time lapse photography. To my mind it’s very much a reminder; as mesmerising and clever as these scenes are, its people that make place.

New York City timelapse is part of  timelapse travel series by Thrashlab.
