Time lapse photography doesn't get more epic than this video of the destruction of the EDF Tower and the construction of the Sequana Tower on its place. It took three years to make, summarized in three minutes in this video.
It all started on January 2007, when Parisian videographer Ramon captured the first image of the demolition work at Tour EDF. 45,000 photographs later, taken from exactly the same point with his Pentax K 110D DSLR, his work was done and a new building was in place. It was September 2010, three years later. That's an average of 42 images per day.
His patience paid off big time. The result is amazing. [Vimeo—Thanks Karl!]
