A Nice Green Leaf: Tulips Timelapse, Paris-style

By Emma Townshend

Here at A Nice Green Leaf we are all big fans of time-lapse, obviously. So imagine my excitement when I found this video on a slightly obscure French site.

But could it get any more French? The art of English time-lapse is to take some majestic force of nature, and make it look a bit Benny Hill. Our Carla-Bruni-pimping neighbours through the tunnel, on the other hand, have put the gentle opening and closing of tulips in the sun to a David Lynch-ish soundtrack and have produced something infinitely more stylish.

Still, given that they are French, what did I expect?
