Totally awesome time-lapse video of San Francisco!
Vimeo video hosting service ^ | September 15, 2009 | Ben Wiggins

If you want to see a FABULOUS time-lapse video of the San Francisco Bay Area, you have got to see this video (you need to have broadband for it to stream properly). I'd recommend you play the video in full-screen mode so you can see the spectacular time-lapse video scenes of the fog rolling in from the west over the San Francisco hills and the lights of the planes landing and taking off from San Francisco International Airport at night.

Very nice.

Clearly the only reason to stay. The bums in the street and the one in the legislature are huge ugly tumors on a beautiful body.

It wasn’t playing right on my computer (and I do have broadband) so sent to son who’s planning a trip to SF next week. Thanks for posting.

Yeah, people told me that would be happening for the last 20 years.

I’m also waiting for the super caldera in Yellowstone to blow up half the western United States!

The lefty’s really screwed up the City I was born and raised.

Cool vids though.

4th of July on the Bay and watching the fireworks is always fun.

When I was younger, we would get 50 people together and charter a party boat/yacht for $2000.00 which included booze and watch the fireworks from an area between Alcatraz and Aquatic Park.

Well, I tried again, and it was a bumpy ride .. would stall at certain times tho less so after 1:57. Will try to see on someone else’s computer. My internet light on the router was flashing wildly while it was showing, so it’s probably pushing the limit on what this computer or my isp can handle.

It's not. It seems to be 57 degrees with a biting cold wind ALL the time, summer and winter. :)

mine’s terrible. We had Verizon FIOS, but moved to a place that has only dsl. I have download at 1.54 mbps and upload at .37 with 2 desktops on the system. Also, within the last month or so, decided to go to basic plan, so think that included a slower rate.

It’s 17.12 now, the other night it was coming down at 19.45 mbps. That was cool.

This is Time-Warner Road Runner

Wow that really is awesome - thanks for sharing. The planes landing at around 3:32 in the video is really quite cool. I also like the name of the group performing the music: His Boy Elroy.

By the way, His Boy Elroy's "Revolve" (the instrument piece used on this video and in 256 kbps variable bit rate encoded MP3 format) can be downloaded for free at http://ccmixter.org. It sounds really good on my 4G iPod nano.
