James Ogle's Toronto Time Lapse (VIDEO)

New York-based videographer/photographer James Ogle visited the Queen City (that's Toronto to you and me) and created a time lapse of his time spent up there.

Ogle, who we've mentioned before for his completely awesome time lapse of New York City, visited our northern neighbors to see his sister and brother-in-law.

Ogle tells us that his visit coincided with the disgusting heat wave that overtook the country a few weeks back and that it wasn't much cooler in Toronto (hence the many near-naked people in the video.)

Last summer, Ogle visited the city and learned of the general layout and prime landmark locations thanks to a "jump on-jump off" bus tour, which he highly recommends. "As jaded of a New Yorker I can be, I must say it truly is the best way to get around and know a new city's layout at an affordable price. Every shot in the piece was taken either near or on the bus route," he adds.

His favorite shot? The Royal Ontario Museum subway shot, which he learned about through Flickr.

Check out the beautiful time lapse below.
