Postcard from Chicago: a Windy City time-lapse journey

Shot over a 2 year period by Chris Biela, Chicagopolis is an adventure throughout second biggest “Polish city” in the world.

Chris shared with us the following details on his video, which was carefully polished using LRTimelapse:

I invite you to a time lapse/hyperlapse journey through Polish Chicago made from my sequences shot over two year period. Four seasons similar to climate in Poland made this geographical area perfect for settling. Chicago – home of immigrant Poles and Americans of Polish heritage. The biggest Polish city outside of Poland. Chicago’s Polish presence is felt in the large number of Polish American organizations located here; including the Polish Museum of America, the Polish American Association, the Polish National Alliance. With over a 1,000,000 people of Polish ethnicity in the Chicago metropolitan area. Chicagopolis is an acronym stating that Chicago is Polish in so many ways and also as a big Metropolis. Interpretation is left for the viewer.
Shot with Canon 5D Mark III, two Manfrotto tripods, Kessler TLS slider, 2 SYRP Genie Mini. Processed in Lightroom 5. Edited in Premiere Pro.
