Lanatur – A time lapse nature music video

Below is a time-lapse nature music video highlighting the MP3 “Age of Innocence” using my amateur photography of Los Angeles: The extremely talented Ian Maksin is featured on this track, which is available for download here.

New Video + Music: The Ginger Virus
