An Evening in Downtown LA from chrisp0 on Vimeo.

Downtown Los Angeles, including Art Walk and Little Tokyo, get the time lapse treatment in this beautiful, almost zen-like short video. You know how the cinematography on MTV's faux-reality show The Hills made L.A. seem like this glittering, shining jewel? This video lends a similar otherworldly feel to DTLA, as each light blinks on in the highrises after a sunset that touches on every color in the spectrum, or as people move seemingly seamlessly on the crowded sidewalks during the monthly art event.
