The City: San Francisco Time Lapse by RTK Photography

One year ago Wesley Townsend Kitten of WTK Photography started filming bits of time lapse to document The City of San Francisco a little differently than the average photographer.

About 250-300 hours, 28,000 frames and 85 shots later he compiled this video. I've never been to San Francisco, but after watching this I feel like I know her a little better. You can almost see the city breathing with the patterns and bustle of traffic.
