I didn't realize the x's and y's were varying the first time around. There's probably a way to omit it, but I think the conceptually simplest way is probably what you had to begin with. Build an index by saying i = numpy.arange(0, t.shape[0])

then you can do t[i, x,y]

so you want

t[:,x,y]

I tried that, but it's not the same:

In [307]: t[[0,1],x,y] Out[307]: array([1, 7])

In [308]: t[:,x,y] Out[308]: array([[1, 3], [5, 7]])

what is your t? Here's my example, which I think matches what you asked for:

In [1]: import numpy as np

In [2]: a = np.arange(12)

In [3]: a.shape = (3,2,2)

In [4]: a Out[4]: array([[[ 0, 1], [ 2, 3]],

[[ 4, 5], [ 6, 7]],

[[ 8, 9], [10, 11]]])

In [5]: a[:,1,0] Out[5]: array([ 2, 6, 10])
