– This video features some breath-taking shots of the city that I managed to capture just as the leaves were in the midst of changing colors for the autumn in Philadelphia. Bound together by the presence of these leaves, the camera shows the contrast between the familiar historic landmarks and majestic skyscrapers along with the quieter side streets and simple scenes of everyday life.
Beginning with a few scattered autumn leaves on the ground, we take a journey through the amazing color-filled mosaic of the city in fall. Center City, Old City, Rittenhouse and Society Hill all make an appearance in this video. In just a few minutes, the video gives a vivid, seasonal look at the fall foliage taking over Philly, while also taking the viewer on a little travelogue through some of my favorite parts of the city.
The camera captured the stunning reds, oranges, and yellows of the autumn leaves, which are what make this footage pop. Meanwhile, joggers, bicyclists, flocks of birds and reflections in the Schuylkill River make cameos as well.
The result is a quietly stunning and meditative look at the city of Philadelphia, rendered in eye-popping color. Bicycles, sidewalks, and stone churches are seen draped in the colors of the leaves while students relax on the lawns of the public parks enjoying the last warm days of the year.
Even if you’ve never visited Philadelphia, I think you’ll find the sight of autumn leaves simultaneously beautiful, comforting, and inspiring.
