A Trip Through Someone Else's Eyes


Chiara Klein

Time-lapse always seems to give the impression that we are observing a world not our own - some stunning, alien realm that we have yet to discover. In doing so, it never fails to reinvigorate our appreciation for the awe-inspiring planet around us, the one that we do, in fact, call home.

Shane Black masters this phenomenon in his short film, “Adventure Is Calling II,” the sequel to his previous film by the same name. Compiling 20,000-plus images from 14,000 miles of travel across the United States and parts of Canada, Black creates a breathtaking montage of some of the most spectacular landscapes this part of the world has to offer. Watch for particular emphasis on mountains, from red rock to snow-covered.

Black and two friends created the initial video, Adventure is Calling, because they felt, according to Black’s Vimeo page, like it was “time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones.” The Ohio-based photographer decided to take the risk again this year, embarking on a 4-month trek, and teaching time-lapse photography along the way. Watching this video, it is easy to see why he couldn’t stay away.
