Mike Flores Baja CA Time Lapse

This time lapse of Baja, California, by Mike Flores is pretty cool work. I especially appreciate the attention to the music cue and the sunrise about two-thrids of the way through. On his Vimeo site, Mike says: This is a little compilation of timelapses I’ve shot down in Baja California this year. There’s a mix of DSLRs and lenses used… Continue reading

But, indeed, the charming little place of 4,500 inhabitants and only 400 cars (mostly golf carts) really exists. Once the sole property of the Wrigley family (yes, think gum)… Continue reading
