Adrift

San Francisco’s fog is almost as iconic as the city’s Golden Gate Bridge. The foggy weather—a blanket of coastal low-lying clouds—drifts in mainly during the summer months, and has captured the attention of photographer Simon Christen. Over the course of two years, Christen spent many an early morning hiking up to the Marin Headlands, a hilly area with expansive views of the Bay Area.

A collection of his favourite shots, the short film Adrift is Christen’ love letter to the fog of San Francisco. It’s quite magical, check it out below.

Long Exposure Air Traffic Photos by Terence Chang

Navigation lights on aeroplanes are used to signal the craft’s location and heading. They are the primary focus in Terence Chang’s wonderful long exposure photos. During a period from July 2008 and April 2010, Chang went to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) to photograph air traffic. What looks like handmade light paintings are the trails made by the navigation lights on the aeroplanes as they took off and landed from the airport. See a few of Chang’s long exposure shots after the jump.

San Francisco to Paris in Two Minutes

When photographer Nate Bolt boarded a transatlantic flight, he doesn’t use medication to knock himself out and avoid the cardboard meals. Instead, he got creative. On a long-haul flight from San Francisco to Paris, the Air France crew kindly allowed Bolt to take regular photos from his window seat.

From takeoff at San Francisco International Airport to the landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, Bolt captured images every two miles and created a time-lapse video of his journey. That’s 11 hours, 2,459 photos, and 5,576 miles compressed into two short minutes. He even witnessed a spectacular Aurora Borealis along the way.

Cross Country Timelapse

If we could ever afford an international holiday (cue sympathy nod here), Lucy Furr and I would love to take a roadtrip across the USA. It seems we can do that now, albeit through the eyes of Chris and Mike.

These two gents decided to drive from San Francisco in the West Coast to Washington DC in the East Coast, snapping a photo every 10 seconds. Take a look at the time-lapse video of their trip below.
