On January 1st of last year, photographer Michael Chrisman began shooting a solargraph by placing a pinhole camera in the Port Lands of Toronto and aiming it at the city’s skyline. Over the next 365 days, the rising and setting sun slowly exposed the photo paper inside. The total exposure time? 31,536,000 seconds.
The yellow lines in the sky shows the gradual shifting of the sun’s path over the course of 2011. Adds a little perspective doesn't it?
