This Magical Time Lapse of Los Angeles Inside a Snow Globe Makes Me Miss Home

By Casey Chan on at

Hi Britons. You might think Los Angeles is filled with American Starbucks sippin' celeb wannabes who are fake, plastic and vapid. Whatever. I think of Los Angeles as home. And since I'm not going home for the holidays, this time-lapse video is the closest I'll get to a lovely Southern California "winter".

Sure we don't get snow and temperature usually hits around 15C, and you can wear a T-shirt, so it hardly qualifies as a "real" winter, but you know what? THAT'S WAY BETTER THAN SHOVELING SNOW AND DODGING SLEET YOU WINTER SLUDGE LOVING FREAKS. Falling snow is beautiful. No snow is better.

This time lapse video cleverly puts LA inside a snow globe to create a wintery feel. I love it. The video was created by Colin Mika using 4000 pictures taken with a Canon 5D Mark II, tilt-shift lens, light bulb filled with water and paper cut outs. Happy Christmas folks. [Vimeo via PetaPixel]
