Large Scale Stop Frame

In my spare time I study physics at the University of Birmingham. We're currently having some building work done on our main courtyard, so with access to one of the security cameras from our main clock tower (provided by an unnamed physicist) I decided to document the events. I wrote a program which is currently running on the physics mainframe, which essentially grabs an image from the security camera every 2 minutes during the day. I compiled these images into a video (with about 6000 frames so far) and you'll find the initial results in the vid below:

I plan on taking a few more weeks of images, the above is about 6 weeks. Enjoy.

For those of you who are interested here is the bash source code:
