Versus: The Stars or the City Lights?

I’ve talked about the creators project before, and I’m always finding new videos from them that are both inspirational and awe-inspiring. “The Art of the Timelapse” features Michael Shainblum, a photographer/artist that creates amazing timelapse videos. To see his work, I definitely recommend checking out the video above.

In the video there is a part where he mentions his past film, “evolution”, where he contrasts the calmness of nature and the hustle and bustle of the city. I found this to be an interesting comparison, because it’ll actually a topic that comes up a lot without ever delving too deep.

If you live in the city, you probably can’t see the stars, and if so, not many. Whereas, if you live in a rural area, then you definitely can. I grew up on the cusp of a farm/country town in a little subdivision. I could sit in my backyard and clearly see the stars, or I could drive less than 5 minutes north and feel like I was seeing galaxies. Surprisingly however, I don’t miss it. Not one bit. I’m a city girl, and I love everything about it, including the hustle and bustle and including the city lights. I find them beautiful and ever-changing, depending on whats happening in the city, what office lights are on and off, and especially in Toronto, the changing colours of the CN Tower.

Am I alone on this? What do you prefer?
