Vine is a weird medium. The six second videos can be amazing for chronicling a location — we recently highlighted one master of that genre — but they can also be really good at capturing slow, contemplative moments.

The videos below are all “place” Vines, meaning that on a basic level they’re capturing the view of a place we might want to visit. But they’re also part of a unique subgenre that exploits their briefly running to time in order to feel like a kind of multi-dimensional photograph.

The result, I think, is that they show how video has a unique way of capturing both the view and the mood of a place.

(Note: hover over the videos, then click the speak in the bottom right corner to hear the audio.)
