If you’re anywhere in the northern hemisphere, it’s summer. And it’s likely hot. If you’re like me, and in Miami’s equatorial blaze, even for a vacay, you’re in the type of heat that’s so oppressive that even the summer night’s crickets can’t be bothered to sing, and it’ll have you lurching for cover under a blade of grass for even the slightest reprieve. It’s not generally what many would call great shooting conditions either, as the sun is so bold it gives a laser edge to the shadows. So what’s one to do? What helps to get through the hot days where the sun just ambles through the sky? Ice cream.
Ok, this is not a technical film, nor a technical post, but it’s one of the best photographic representations of summer around. We’ve been treated to timelapses that cover everything from a city’s day, to wilderness month, but none quite like this that’ll have you licking your lips. It’s called Creamlapse, and it’s a short hyperlapse film shot by Mateo Cabeza.
From cones with sprinkles, to Vienetta cake, to popsicles and creamsicles, it’s here, and melting away to the tune of Bobby Vinton’s “Mr. Lonely.” Shot on a Canon 5D MKII with a 24-105mm, it’s 3500 photos of colorful temptation and inspiration. Cabeza manages to make art of something so simple, and the vibrancy of the colors and choice of subject are a perfect match for Vinton’s 1962 chart topper. It’s beautiful. Enjoy.
