Maybe it’s the geopolitical situation, maybe simply the truncated of month of February. Whatever the reason, it feels like time is moving faster and faster.

In previous columns, we’ve viewed Israel through the stereoscopic lens, through cyan and red 3D anaglyphs, 3D still images and even cutting-edge 3D video. Today, in keeping with our sense of time speeding up, we’ll look at Israel through the time-lapse photography lens.

Time-lapse photography, as Wikipedia has it, “is a cinematography technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that which will be used to play the sequence back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.”
