Created by photographer Eric Hines, the video "Cityscape Chicago" was chosen as an "editor's pick" in a Smithsonian video contest.
According to the site, Hines shot more than 30,000 photographs between July and October 2012 in downtown Chicago, and then put them in altogether in the 3 minute, 33 second video. His fascination of the city is felt in the video. "For me, there has always been a mysterious sort of feeling to Chicago at night," Hines said in the caption for his video.
Hines is based in Northwest Indiana.
