Wow. This is simply stunning.

Sure, we've all seen time-lapse videos before, but you have to admit that this beats looking at some chap's face as he grows and shaves his beard over and over.

This video, shot by Paris-based videographer Ramon, took 3 years and documents the destruction of an old tower block and the construction of a brand new, sparkly one in its place.

Ramon took the pictures, all 45,000 of them, between January 2007 and September 2010 on his Pentax K110D.

The result of his dedication is this beautiful film. Enjoy.
