Some folks like to complain that technology is dividing us, putting us in fron of tiny machines and not interacting the way we should. But the following video brings is together. Not in some sappy uber-cute fawning way, but in an appreciation of what we are – human beings. The following shows the patience of a father as he records over 600 weeks of his daughter, from tiny baby to a young woman of 12 in a time lapse video.
His name is Frans Hofmeester. He’s from Holland. The subject is Lotte, his daughter. The film has gone viral and has been seen by over a million people. He asserts he will continue this video as well as a companion piece that is his 9 year old son, Vince.
I find this all so amazing and touchingly human.
