Timelapse Video of California Fires

I’ve only heard a little about these fires on WNYC each day, so during this morning’s coffee I did a search on NYTimes.com and found California Wildfires Seen From Space with very crisp satellite photos and a reference to time lapse videos which really caught my attention as a removed artist.

This is the video linked in that NYTimes article

Here is a related video:

This is a time-lapse video shot from a outdoor camera of the La Canada Flintridge Station Fire. This video begins August 28, 2009 at 6:16 pm and ends on August 29, 2009 at 6:06 pm. …”

I like the framing of this one, with a pool in the foreground, even though it’s obviously a security camera. Later in this time lapse, the fire plumes make me think this fire is getting very close the next morning. I wonder if these people were evacuated?
