Top Gear is back

That's right; we're just an hour away from the first episode of season 13; and only two months (and a couple of days, but who's counting) after its first airing in the UK. Thank you, SBS, what would we ever do without you [/sarcasm off]

Laings Point

Can you tell that Sydney experienced a number of excellent weekends recently? Yes, I've been out for quite a bit of time lapse fun, and I have every intention to release the results for everyone to see (whether you take that as a threat or a promise is up to you).

This time, I found a brilliant spot near South Head:

Time lapsing again

Another time lapse attempt, this time from Howley Park.

Nighttime time lapse

Another attempt at combining light streak photography and time lapse; this time with more frames, shot specifically for this purpose (unlike last week, when I originally set out to just get one decent light streak photo).

The slight wobble in the second video demonstrates a vital rule for time lapsing: Always turn off the camera's auto focus.

My thanks to Aldi for providing very convenient rooftop parking in such a great vantage point.

More time lapse fun with Sydney's famous harbour

Feel good story of the day

Some may call it vandalism; others probably see it as self defence:

SYDNEY'S newest criminals - the speed camera torchers - have struck again in spectacular fashion, wiping out one of the city's most hated revenue-raising cameras.
A city-bound fixed speed camera halfway up Spit Hill is believed to have been deliberately set alight at about 2am today.

Police attended the scene, taking photos and scouring the scene for evidence.

It was the fifth speed camera attack in the area since the start of June.
