Louisville In Bloom

First I have to give credit to Ben Sollee for creating the song “Unfinished” that was used in the video, if you want want to check out more of his work click this link: bensollee.com

 

Photographing spring is a race against time.  For a fleeting moment each year trees become giant flowers, then transform into the way we see them the 11 months of the year, either with leaves or bare.

The inspiration for this video came after seeing a friend’s photo on Facebook of a street lined with blooming trees.  After thinking about how to show off how cool the rest of Louisville looks during this time, I figured another timelapse video would do justice to this subject.  Normally on a personal project that requires as much time and effort as a timelapse video I’ll shoot over the course of months, however when capturing spring I wasn’t afforded the luxury of time since the flowering trees only lasts around 30 days.  Thankfully for the month of April, when the trees where in full force that year, I was able to shoot every evening except for about three days when it was raining too hard….the camera can handle a little drizzle but not full on rain.

Most of the video focuses on Old Louisville and the Cherokee park areas, it was important to include some other neighborhoods around Louisville and I wish they could have been featured more, but since time was limited to shooting with the few hours of sunlight after work, maximizing the number of scenes shoot in an afternoon was critical.  With the tree lined streets of Old Louisville and the Cherokee park these areas were the quickest way to end up with a bunch of video clips.  Over the roughly 30 days of shooting I ended up with 92 shots.  Of the 92 locations 66 made it in the video.

Often when I think of a city known for flowering trees I think of Washington DC with their cherry blossoms, but if you want something a little closer to home with less tourists just take a walk through Old Louisville or around the Cherokee park neighborhoods, they are in incredible site to see.
