Here’s a little treat for the weekend. I stumbled upon these great city time lapses by photographer Rob Whitworth, who manages to capture the cities vibe and convey it pretty remarkably. He makes me want to grab my bag and just head out there! Great visuals, great sound… and even greater editing work, making it all tick! Enjoy…

Kuala Lumpur / Day – Night

Kuala Lumpur : super-modern buildings juxtaposed with various cultural enclaves and with a little of Asia’s chaos thrown in. My time lapse explores how the city changes from day to night highlighting how spaces dramatically alter during the course of a few hours.

As summarized by Marc Lourdes on Yahoo! Malaysia : 5 months. 400 hours of solid work. 4 cameras. 40 shoots. 640 gigabytes of data. 19,997 photographs.

Music : Clams Casino – I’m God

Hoi An / Life in the Fast Lane

Each morning the dawn calm of Hoi An, Vietnam, disappears in a frenzy of activity. Whether it’s conical hatted ladies conducting million-dong-deals or school girls in their perfect white Ao Dai uniforms commuting four-to-a-bicycle, Hoi An is a full of life… That is, until about 9pm each day when the bustling streets empty and calm returns.

Hoi An has effectively been preserved in time from it’s days as one of South East Asia’s busiest trading ports. I was privileged to call Hoi An my home for just over a year. As a visitor I will only ever understood a fraction of the activity that keeps the streets and waterways alive. I wanted to capture and share some of the sights that inspired me during my time in this historic town.

Traffic in Frenetic Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city. This time lapse is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change.

Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the film and thanks also to the numerous kind people who allowed me access to some amazing locations.

Soundtrack to the video is the energetic Mondo’77 by Looper.

Very cool bro.

I've been to both Hoi An and Saigon and these time lapses sure do show the vibe of both cities. I loved the Ho Chi Minh one as it really shows how CRAZY the traffic is in Vietnam's big cities :)
