That was interesting! I remember when our mall used to have a pet store...I haven't seen them in any malls in quite some time.
I've never seen a pet store in a mall before but then again I've only been to the malls in Sacramento, CA when I lived there and even though there were a couple of nice ones, they weren't nearly as fancy back then as the mall in the video. I just find it interesting just how relaxed things are, easy-going and free-flowing in the mall in that video. I kind of wish the video wasn't as fast so I could enjoy it more.
When I think of malls, I can't relate to the type shown in this time-lapse footage. These mega malls in giant cities. My mall experiences have always been those in smaller towns, one story, not all that modern looking, etc. That is what a mall experience in the 80's and 90's was for me.
An image from the mall I frequented most in my childhood. This image was taken in the 70's, but little changed about it in the 80's, with the exception of additional greenery.
I really don't know why the heck the video was made that fast. Ok, there should be two versions. One fast and one slow because I would really like to have a good look at all the people. It's really fascinating and I loved going to the mall because you'd have all types of people. Crazy how life works and how often people are so carefree as seen in the video.
Anyone else feel like things are just working so well together in the video as far as the people being so relaxed and everything moving like a well-oiled machine? Nowadays I imagine everyone moving at their own pace and everything being out of wack as society has really changed since the 90s.
That's how I feel. The guy also has some other interesting videos on his channel that may be worth checking out. The mall footage I really would have liked to be in regular speed to get a good feel of the pace of the people and how fast people walked. I think people generally seemed more relaxed and natural back then, even some place as hectic as an L.A. mall.
