A Day at the Florist (time lapse, stop motion video)

My latest endeavor (obsession) is time lapse photography.  About a year ago I started playing around with stop motion video of my kids,  now I am trying to combine the two .  After playing around a little, my first real attempt is done. It is a short one minute marketing, promotional piece for Fellan Florist, a boutique florist on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. 

A night at the Antonelli's

I was working around some photographers and reporters that are a bit younger than me recently.  They were talking about what they had done the previous evening. There were bars and clubs and restaurants and very late nights involved.  I started to think about what I had done the night before which at first glanced seemed considerably less exciting. When I thought more about it though, I realized how great my night was. I realized that before I know it my 5 year old won't be 5 anymore, my 2 year old won't be two anymore and my evenings won't be the same.  Everyone always tells us how fast our children will grow up and I am starting to really see it. I want to hold on and I want to appreciate it, so the next night I made this time lapse. So to all those folks out there partying, this is what evenings at our house look like.  I wouldn't trade it for anything.
