This is one of the first timelapses I captured in mid June of 2009 from the 24th floor of a rental building around Queen & Roncesvalles, in Toronto, Canada.

Lens/Cam/Tri: Wide Sigma/Canon40D/Manfrotto (with a slightly faulty shoe) on a really windy day so please forgive the slight bit of camera shake.

Capturing was done entirely organically roughly every 12-15 seconds with only a 3' shutter release cable and no intervalometer. I recited a sequence of words in my head such that I would have the timing necessary to push my shutter release roughly every 15 seconds to create this lapse of time. This is the reason the flow of the cloud movement is inconsistent and a tad jerky. I actually kind of like the effect that was created by this inconsistency in timing.

Every great timelapse deserves great sound so turn up your speakers and listen to a minute-long clip of my very good friend Lumberjockey's latest mix - Symbolton.

**kindly comment on soundcloud & spread the sound**

especially thank you Laura, Wyatt and Neal for giving me the opportunity. I appreciate you all making this piece possible by creating the space and taking the time necessary to assist me through the tedious capture over 3 days.

Thank you Scott, for being a lumberjockey and providing a really appropriate piece of sound to go with this visual journey of a day in Toronto.

Thank you Toronto, for being so beautiful (and also for having an island airport ;)

ps. Stick around for the last frame of the lapse, the last shot is frozen for a few seconds so you have a little time to take in the 4 hour long exposure of moon rising.
