Time Lapse Videos
|Ferry from Port Jefferson, Long Island, NY to Bridgeport, CT|
On the way back from Brookhaven National Lab, I set up my camera at the bow of the ferry to record the voyage. You can see Connecticut appear on the horizon over about thirty seconds, which took an hour and fifteen minutes in real time.
|Ferry from Bridgeport, CT to Port Jefferson, Long Island, NY|
To get to Brookhaven National Lab, I put my car on a giant boat and sailed about an hour to Long Island from Connecticut. There were lots of neat cloud formations and sunbeams along the way.
|Basement Time Lapse|
This is a time lapse movie of us putting the basement together. It mostly houses my electronics projects. Photos were taken 3 seconds apart.

|Setting Up Camp at Sugarloaf|
Marina and I went camping with some MIT friends and their significant others. We set up camp the night before hurricane Irene hit the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Tents were pitched just before dusk. Photos were taken once every three seconds with an automatically adjusted exposure.
|Sunset Over Oak Ridge|
This is the sunset on S. Illinois Ave. in Oak Ridge, TN. We don't have sunsets like these in the north.
|Driving from Wilmington, DE to the Chesapeake Bay|
Mattia and I drove from our grandmother's house in Wilmington, DE to a cabin on the Chesapeake bay for my cousin's bachelor party. We set the camera on a tripod, wedged between the driver's and passenger's seats, pointing out the windshield. Photos were taken every three seconds with a very short exposure.
|Traffic in New York City|
Marina and I stopped over in New York on our way to Delaware, and discovered the new Highline park. The city has finally transformed an old elevated subway track into an elevated pedestrian park. At one end, there is a mini-ampitheater where you can watch traffic on a busy street from above. Photos were taken every five seconds with a half second exposure.
|Dinner at the Cheesecake Factory|
We set the time lapse camera at the corner of the table to watch the meal at warp speed. A picture was taken every two seconds, for about 90 minutes until the battery died.

This is a 10 minute time lapse video taken on top of Mt. Chocorua in Conway, NH. Pictures were taken every two seconds. You can see the shadows of clouds passing along the woods on the mountains below, and the formation of many little clouds as well.

This is a compliation of four 10 minute time lapse videos taken at night in downtown Boston. Images were taken every two seconds. The compilation includes the Boston public library at Copley Square, a divided road on Boylston St., an intersection at the Boston Common, and the Loews theater on the common.
