Time lapse is ubiquitous.
And quite rightly so.
Along with it's cousin super slow motion, I cannot think of a better way of capturing the passing of time.
I like many others tend to use it as a quirky bit of fun instead of using it as a narrative.
In fact examples of time lapse that truly tell a story are relatively few and far between.
When the space shuttle flew into Los Angeles for the last time it made one of the great photo ops of the year.
The juxtaposition of something big and that is normally in space was a sight to behold.
Bryan Chan pho editor and photographer at the 'La Times' shot a multi view time lapse of the shuttles final journey.
It really is outstanding.
He tells the story here in the LA Times blog.
As you will read planning is all.
Time lapse can be child's play, but when used to tell a story of an historic journey it is a very powerful tool.
