Change of Seasons in Compressed Time

Marey, Pelican in Flight (via

In some ways the opposite of the work of Marey and Muybridge, wherein what occurred over a short amount of time was slowed and explained in fragments, I have included below a video that compresses what occurs over a longer period of time into a shorter and more understandable timeframe. From what I believe was late October to mid-December, I photographed a tree outside my apartment window each morning, the daily images of which are presented here in a time-lapse that – because it has the ability to demonstrate long processes in a short time – shows what I would have missed otherwise. In this case, I have found myself surprised by not only the daily variance in light levels and shadows, but by the quick pace at which the leaves finally changed after a prolonged summer.
