VIDEO-Amazing timelapse video of Ho Chi Minh City

Whilst I try and only feature my own stuff here every now and then a video comes along from someone else which totally blows me away. This video from Rob Whitworth is no exception and is totally amazing in every aspect.
Rob took numerous trips to Saigon, now known as Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and spent nine months taking over 10,000 images! With a lot of post production and processing he has created a stunning video full of colour and movement!

Rob spoke to and gave more detail of the shoot,

“I draw creativity from stuff that fascinates me and Ho Chi Minh City intrigued me from the moment I arrived — I wanted to understand it, find my way around it, and capture it in some way. Some of the main things that struck me were the massive scale of building and infrastructure construction, as well as the traffic and the general sense of excitement.”

“I’ve always considered myself to be a wide-angle photographer, I saw the phrase ‘turning the ordinary into the unusual’ written somewhere and I like that. In Ho Chi Minh City there is so much going that wide-angle lenses become essential. At the same time a few of the shots were done using telephoto lenses to pick out some of the interesting details.”
