Playing With Time - from the sublime to the well-nigh ridiculous

Click on this girl's face and watch her age 50 years in 20 seconds. Presurfer led me to this rather remarkable site called "Playing with Time." What I found myself rather remarking about was how I hadn't, until this site, quite realized that all this high-speed-slow-to-stop-motion time-lapse stuff was exactly that - playing with time. Go to their Gallery for an inspiring collection of QuickTime clips, ranging in span from 20 microseconds to 240 million years.

For a sublime perspective on time-shifting, take a look at the Lunar and Planetary Observation and CCD Imaging site. For yet further sublimity, with a definite touch of humor, try the Bio-Perceptitorium where you'll find the much-vaunted, and somewhat yucky Sea Slug movie. And then, for a taste of the ridiculous, try these time-lapse road-trip videos from Speedy Cam

You can purchase clips for your own library from Time-Lapse.com. Many of these are commercial grade, and, even if you're not in the market, it's worth the browse.
