Running On Empty

Living in Los Angeles, even without a car, they’re still a part of my daily life. While on the bus I have to wait behind them, while walking on the street I have to be careful not to get hit by them. So of course it’s extremely interesting for me to see a video like the one above, featuring a Los Angeles without cars.

The video was inspired by Matt Logue’s Empty Los Angeles series of photo but Ross Ching decided to take that idea one step further. Using time-lapse of some sort Ross has created lots of small video montages of some rather iconic areas around Los Angeles. It was actually a lot of fun trying to spot the places around my neighborhood, and even weirder to see them completely devoid of cars and people.
