Love the look and feel of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight movies—don't love the "plot," "action," or "characters?" Watch timelapse photographer Toby Harriman's Gotham City SF, a portrait of San Francisco captured in a gritty black and white that instantly reminds us of the moody Batman trilogy. "Several years ago while exploring my passion for black and white photography I found myself wandering into a look I call ‘Gotham,’" Harriman explains in the video's description. The timelapse definitely lives up to it's name, and it's a trip to see the normally vibrant bayside metropolis recast to look like the crime-ridden city from the movies.

"Its definitely my biggest project to date and hopefully something a little different for SF," Harriman tells The Creators Project. Check out the video above, and get lost in Gotham, San Francisco in these photos below:
