A few years ago, I kicked the caffeine habit. Never having “acquired” the taste for coffee (without a ton of syrupy goodness), Dr. Pepper was my drink of choice. It was a sad day when I gave it up, but over the years, I learned not to need it and now am fairly sensitive to any sort of caffeinated items. When I started running long distances, I began taking a pre-workout and my body, not used to any caffeine, is suddenly filled with a jittery blast of energy. The world seems to move at a frenetic pace, my mind whirls, and I am able to run faster, farther.
The following hyperlaspe experimentation by Maxime Gaudet is a tour of Paris, set at a frenzied pace. Paris, the City of Love, has long been on my short list of places I want to visit and hopefully, when I make it there, I’ll be able to take some time to enjoy the famous sites. For now though, the video below gives me a quick glance of Paris, all in three rapid, fast-paced, pre-workout fueled minutes. It fits my current mood perfectly, as I’m still on the last vestiges of jittery-ness following my morning workout.
Using a Canon 5D Mark III and an iPhone 5s, Maxime gives us a tour of his city. Among some of the famous places you see are Montmartre, Tour Eiffel / Champs de Mars / Trocadéro, Stalingrad, Grand Palais, Panthéon, Pont Alexandre III, Les Champs Élysées, Le Printemps, Louvre, Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, Opéra Garnier, Moulin Rouge and a host of other places, that reads like my high school French class’ textbook. It’s a perfect, Sunday tour for those of you with short attention spans, or are still slightly caffeinated from that morning cup of Joe (or pre-workout).
