In 2011, a man named Brian DeFrees drove 12, 225 miles across the United States. Instead of writing a journal, he summarized each day with photos, by using different iPhone applications, such as picframe and instagram.
Meanwhile, as he drove, he positioned his Cannon D60 on his dashboard and set it to capture a new photo every five seconds. Even when he was parked and not moving for the night, he was still time lapsing. So take five minutes of your time… and check out this amazing road trip time lapse video that captures the thrill and beauty of a cross country road trip.
