A mate from work share with me this place. I was into photography a few years back and sharing my work with him and he was absolutely impressed.. I was beginning to shoot time-laspe photography and looking for new locations to practice it.

He shared with me on top of East Gardens shopping centre could be a great place to do time-laspe with the smog from the industrial manufacturers. I was impressed myself with the location as you can see all the way to Botany Bay and basically have 180 degree view of Sydney from another angle.

So after work instead of driving back home and stuck in traffic I drove to the top floor of the car park area in Eastgardens and catch some sunset. It was different as I usually go to Botany Bay to see the sunset there. This view was different I have the industrial manufacturers as the foreground.

I was still shooting the Canon 7D at the time and basically have to used the twisted lens method and manual focus and manual exposure everything. There was  a few shots that I have blown up the exposure. It was a learning curve for me at the time as well.

Anyway, a few days later I show my mate at work the finished time-lapse video and he was impressed It takes time to developed and rendered out time-lapse video. It is not easier as people think but the effort worth every pain and time shooting and processing the photos.
