WERE YOU OUT shopping in Dublin last week? You might spot yourself in this clip.

Photographer Gareth Byrne sealed off a boardroom in his office overlooking Grafton Street, and rigged a camera to take a photograph every two minutes over a 24 period.

The result is this stunning timelapse of the street during one of the busiest times of the year.

The video consists of 750 images, and starts at 4.30pm on December 4th, and continues until the same time the following day. Watch it below.
