London In Motion: A New Timelapse Of The Capital

This rather lovely timelapse video of London was put together by student Lewis Symonds (@Lewis1498). We particularly enjoyed the 'hyperlapse' shots, in which the camera pans across a scene — Buckingham Palace or the National Gallery — in speeded up time.

Brilliant but there's no credit for the music, what is it?

Lewis has done something extraordinary - because every location is completely familiar to us all. There are no surprises in that sense. But he forces you to look at these landmarks with a new sense of recognition. London becomes a living organism that unites its inhabitants like a family. The film gives you a renewed affection and a realisation that yes, much as I hate tooling atound London with all its annoyances - I actually do love the place. I guess I always did. As Dr Johnson said: "The man who is tired of London is tired of life."
