Everyone agrees that Rio de Janeiro is a beautiful city with beautiful beaches filled with beautiful people doing beautiful things. Everyone can also agree that the favelas in Rio show another side of the city where people's lives are seemingly next to, on top of and even inside other people's lives. This wonderful time lapse by Joe Capra captures all of Rio de Janeiro—its natural beauty, its crowded slums, its landmarks—and it's just perfect. Few cities can look this good.

Capra used a Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 5D Mark II and a PhaseOne IQ180 to create the RIO time lapse. I'd either watch it in full screen or with another window looking up airplane tickets to Rio. [Scientifantastic]
