Capturing hundreds of sequential Street View images from Google Maps using ScreenHunter software, then stitching them together  and time-lapsing them in Windows Movie Maker, the peripatetic highway videographer who goes by the YouTube handle eluko79 has created a real-but-virtual photographic journey into the heart of the city.
