San Francisco Time Lapse (Empty America)

This is a pretty eerie look at what is typically a very busy city! Most of the major landmarks of San Francisco are shown in this cool timelapse – what is missing though is every single human and all the traffic!
With the help of some cool special effects and Ashton’s deep pockets – it turns out to be a awesome finished product – check out the “making of” as well at the end of this post.

The “Empty America” series begins in San Francisco. From the Golden Gate Bridge to Fisherman’s Wharf to Lombard Street to Ghirardelli Square to the Bay Bridge – get a good look at some of San Francisco’s most iconic landmarks (wiped empty of tourists and traffic).
