While travelling in his car, Brian took a photo on his Canon every 5 seconds with an intervalometer. When he parked for the night or explored an area on foot, he was still capturing photos constantly.

Here’s Brian’s most recent drivelapse video. You can see more of his work, including his Instagram documentary of his trip, at his site here.
