From the roof of my apartment on Wednesday, July 27, 2011, around golden hour after work.

Apologies for the dust marks and shaky footage — I scrambled to catch this before another commitment, so I didn't have time to grab my tripod and I only realized the marks after the fact. :(

To understand what's happening here, I'd recommend reading this excellent post from Tim Morgan: For reference, beyond Sutro Tower is the Inner Sunset neighborhood, and then the Pacific Ocean.

Shot with a Canon 5D MII. Footage is set to 2x speed (1x is too slow for the internet's attention), the third segment is played back in reverse because it looked beautifully unnatural.
