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.

The source imagery was later turned into a rolling gif by ReditorITwitchToo.
Excerpts from a project by photographer Christian Chaize spanning eight locked-off, large format years on a beach in Southern Portugal. To wit:
What the still-life was for Morandi, the haystack for Monet…this beach is that for me. From a distance, I observe the variables: light, weather, time of day, the ebb and flow of the ocean and most importantly, the sunbathers, unaware, below my large-format camera. The images are shot vertically, a departure from the traditional, horizontal format in landscape photography. It puts my subject matter in the form of a portrait—an ongoing record of this corner of nature (and human nature), over the minutes, the days, the years.

To wit: in life, we only get four seasons. Use them well.
