The year 2010 recorded in a composite image of 3,888 photographs taken by Erik Solheim from the window of his apartment in Oslo.

Solheim set up his Canon 400D to record one image every 30 minutes: 16,000 photographs  whittled down to 3,888 from each of which he extracted a one-pixel wide line, then composited the lot (from January on the left to December on the right) using a computer script.

Full sized image here.

The source imagery was later turned into a rolling gif by ReditorITwitchToo.
