Amazing New Timelapse of Boston

I just saw this on Fox News in Boston this morning and had to put it on my blog. I always love a good timelapse video and have posted a bunch on my site already. This was done by a guy named Sean Collins and there is more info about his video on Boston Magazine. He used a lot of unique angles although I could do without some of the agressive HDR shots. Enjoy!
