When I got my first video camera I became obsessed with time lapse videos.

I used to stay in a second floor flat and there really wasn’t much to film except for the street outside. Whether there are any laws against doing this I’m not 100% sure but if you do see yourself in any of my videos please do let me know and I will add your name to the credits.

Alternatively, if you are too ugly and you don’t want anyone to recognise you then I will pixelate your face.

I set up my camera and pointed it towards a little coffee house called The Breadmaker – they make bread don’t you know, along with many other very fine cakes, sandwiches and all that good stuff. I left the camera running all afternoon and, once again, if anyone saw me doing that then this is what I was doing and not anything untoward!

I was very happy with the footage captured and after a few little tweaks here and there I then had to choose the perfect soundtrack to accompany it.

I love it – I think it’s amazing how so many different people, going about their own business with their own stories, are all captured here over a few minutes.

Let me know which one you prefer.
