Next time I’m stuck in traffic with nothing but asphalt, strip malls and empty-eyed commuters as far as the eye can see, I will conjure memories of today’s EWC featured videos.

Much of the world is changing, but much remains that can be cherished. Some things, like the “Midnight Sun” over Iceland, haven’t changed for hundreds of thousands of years.

Welcome to this edition of Saturdays Around the World, a Saturday series where we feature some of the incredible places around the world that still deserve to be savored. Let’s get started…

The first four-minute video is produced by a fellow named Joe Capra who is connected to a design firm called MichaelLevy Studio. The photographer mentions that he lived in his car for 17 days in Iceland filming its timeless beauty between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m.

The websites and Facebook pages were unusually linked, so we couldn’t really sort out who owns the rights to the work in question – the artist or the firm – so we’ll give them both a thank you. After you have a look at this beautiful work, you can check in on more work by Joe Capra on Facebook, here, and the Michael Levy Studio, here.

Here are four minutes to remind us what is timeless:

Just in case, you can’t get enough of Iceland’s wonder, here’s another photographer’s work – Julian Tryba – and his take on the midnight sun. He also told the story of living in his car for four weeks and filming through the night. This fellow looks like a brilliant mind behind an innovative new creative process. Let’s look…

Breathtaking.

Now if you think there’s something special about Julian’s work, you are right! He’s pioneered a kind of layered time-lapse photography that we have featured before in an article called Boston from a Wrinkle in Time.

Julian Tryba’s Boston: A Wrinkle in Time

Julian Tryba brings wonder to reality by layering our view of the world around us. It's interesting how our mind has to simplify things so we can make sense of our surrounding. See what's really going on!
