On August 5th, 2008 I made the first version of this mashup, East Meets West and with the newly created contraflow bicycle lane on 15th Street NWDC, I decided to make the second version, North Meets South.
The two videos were taken from one continuous video recording that I conducted while riding on my bicycle from U Street & 15th Street to Massachusetts Ave & 15th Street and back. At home I split the videos into North & South and used the crosswalks as the starting & ending points. The object of this video mashup is to find the exact time when the two recordings pass each other on opposite sides of the street.
A few notes:

Before Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremonies had finished, I decided to leave the National Mall so I could avoid the large crowds. After I picked up my bicycle near 3rd & Independence Ave SW, I decided to ride in the direction that seemed to have the least amount of people. After about 5 minutes of navigating the streets, I rode up to the 3rd Street tunnel, which had been closed off to vehicular traffic to allow people to enter the National Mall from the south side. Since bicyclists are normally not allowed on this stretch of highway, I decided to get out my camera and film my ride under the National Mall. This video starts as I go into the tunnel and finishes when I exit the tunnel.
