San Francisco Time-Lapse Video Shows The City Without Any People

For some reason, looking at the infrastructure we've built sitting there without us makes it all the more incredible. Having people disappear gives us a chance to marvel at what we've done to change a natural landscape into something unnatural, to wonder at the innovation and effort behind building a city of this size, and to consider what it might be like if we actually did just.... vanish.

Huffington Post writes, "Inspired by photographer Matt Logue's series 'Empty LA,' [director Ross] Ching used time-lapse photography and some tedious Photoshopping to create a video of a stunningly empty San Francisco."

"The video is the first of a series that aims to show some of the most iconic cities in America without people," Ching told The Huffington Post. "The great thing about this is that it doesn't require a crew to accomplish. It just took me two cameras and three days to complete filming."
