Chicago Timelapse: Zipping Through the Canals

Chicago-area filmmaker Philip Bloom mounted a camera on a boat and took a trip to and through the Windy City, capturing the pulse of the humming town, the business of its waterways, and a colorful firework display.

The video serves as a nice reminder that Chicago is, and always has been, a water-centric town.

As Bloom heads toward the city, bright reflections bounce between skyscrapers. The light slowly fades. Boats turn to fireflies as dusk arrives and Bloom heads back to the dock, leaving the glowing city in his wake. Just another day in Chicago.
