A Docklands Farewell

Docklands Farewell from drew gardner on Vimeo.

So I'm leaving London's Docklands after 5 happy years

New adventures ahead

I made this very short video farewell using Canon 5d Mk 2 and a Canon 550d  (or T2i as it is known in the  USA) and a wide range of Canon EF lenses from a 600mm for the London City Airport timelapse, 300mm F4 and 70-200 F4 for the towers timelapse and video, 85 mm F1.2 for the O2 Dome focus pull (from my bedroom) down to a 24-105mm zoom for the Docklands Light Railway and Isle of Dogs car footage

All aided by murky Autumn weather

I hope you enjoy it

This makes me realize we were neighbours when I lived in London this spring. Too bad I didn't find out, I would gladly have gone for a beer with you.

Great video - makes me realise how much I miss the place - rain and all.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Funny you lived here in Spring Alexandre

Was it actually in Orchard place?

Yes Jim, I'm missing it already somehow, but I get the feeling that within a very short space of time it will have changed beyond all recognition when the developers get going again.

Which in a funny way is what this area is all about, constant change and evoloution
