World’s Strangest

Fall, Timelapse, Central Park

Need a dose of tranquility? Watch this three-minute timelapse video shot in New York City’s Central Park. Photographer Jamie Scott selected fifteen locations in the park and returned to them twice a week for six months, from August 2011 through January 2012. And I do mean fifteen extremely specific locations — repeating the exact same video pans on the exact same trees, water, and so on — so you can watch the leaves change colors, then fall off the trees in timelapse. This is a feat of persistence, precision, and technology, matching up all those visits and re-photographing the same material.

The result is a beautiful, tranquil reminder of how the seasons change. Enjoy, and make it fullscreen so you can see the leaves.
