all the vehicles and people look like toys! Why is that?
Narrow depth of field coupled with a stop-motion like effect?

wow. I had no idea you could tilt-shift a video. Very cool. Thanks, as always, for the wonderful things you make me look at. :) I am glad you are here.

Wow how can we even deal with this technique?

Amazing how the crane machines look like crane birds.

Also, I imagine you might be missing NYC. I was there once for four days and this makes me miss it.

Had to look up the technique you mention the illusion was so good.

I loved that. It made me want to go to New York again.
Wow - all those taxis!

Really nice! So it the tilt shit technique focused on light/color or time lapse? Who is the music by?

I think you mean "shift" Morgan.

Does this remind anyone else of Thomas the Tank Engine?

Anyone else have little kids in the late 90s, early 2000s?

I kept expecting to hear Alec Baldwin narrating the lives of the front end loaders, the ferry boats and all the little people.

Was that Manhattan Island or the Island of Sodor?
