Ross Ching of Trashlab has begun a series titled Empty America which focuses on time lapses of iconic cities without any inhabitants. This gloomy portrayal of the stunning west coast city San Francisco has people wondering how the busy touristy city was left empty from people. The video focuses on all aspects of the city from suburban streets to the Golden Gate Bridge.

This gloomy, mystic film creates an artistic appeal to travel and offers a creative spin on the architecture of the great San Francisco city. Ross Ching created the video series after Matt Logue’s photo series ‘Empty LA,' which inspired him to tell the story of the streets of a city instead of the people who inhabit it. This is the first video of the series. Stats for Apocalypse-Inspired Time Lapses Trending: Older & Chilly
