I'm used to hearing people referring to Dubai as a sandpit, so I was surprised to see this video about New York by Sam O'Hare called The Sandpit.
It is a lovely tilt shift video of a day in the life of New York and I am also loving the music, made specifically for this video by Human.
Read this interview with Sam O'Hare describing the shoot and explaining his techniques.
"The entire shoot was completed in 5 days and two evenings, during the hottest week of August 2009. Many thanks go to all the people who gave me access to rooftops, penthouses and balconies to shoot from." Sam O'Hare
I have never been to New York, but hope it will be on my travel agenda soon.
