Two icosacomposites from LA, hot off the render queue. The first is not terribly recognizable, but it’s an interesting location for me, personally: the building at Hollywood and Cahuenga (the intersection is known as “Raymond Chandler Square”) is suspected to be the model Chandler had in mind for Phillip Marlowe’s office. I also liked the Pacific
Just finished processing another month of skygrid shots. Just a couple more months until we’re back to the equinox. Click to embiggen:
Well, it didn’t take as long as I expected to clean up the dust spots from the two other time-lapse videos. When you’re not rendering twenty layers of transparent footage things go quite a bit faster. Here’s the front of the turbine in close-up: And the darker-skies version of the turbine in the landscape (which
Early this morning I went out to shoot some time-lapse videos of a wind turbine I really hadn’t explored up-close, the 1.8 MW Vestas at the MWRA pumping station in Everett. It has been a while! Almost nine months since I last shot this turbine, and almost two years since I shot the Northwind 100

This time I managed to get this one processed quickly. Click to embiggen.

Having finished up the footage in Union Square, I had an hour and a half to shoot another composite. Some block northwest of Union Square is an architectural icon, the Flatiron Building. One of my favorite images by Paul Steichen is of this building: So it was a no-brainer for me to create my own
From Williamsburg I jumped back on the L to get to Manhattan. At this time it was getting close to the time I needed to get to my bus, so I was working the numbers in my head to see if I could pull footage for not one, but two more composite videos. Union Square
