Garage Day 2: Personal Open Pit Mine

As my neighbours and passersby can attest, I came home to find a 40′x40′ hole carved out of my backyard, with walls as tall as 15′, in what can only be described as my own personal open pit mine. I am, of course, using construction-grade snow fencing to detour the jewel thieves from stealing my diamonds.

Timelapse Specifics
Both Day1 and Day2 timelapses are shot with the GoPro at 30 second intervals. There’s a clock attached to the post under the deck on the right. The video compression makes it pretty blurry, but it gives you a better idea of specific time passing.

I built a make-shift housing for the GoPro so I could have a consistent shooting angle from a fixed point on the deck. There was a brief moment of craziness where I contemplated making the housing as a miniature version of my garage design. I did not. :)

The housing also added a bit more water resiliancy, since I needed to drill into the GoPro’s weatherproof casing to wire in external power for the extended timelapse. You’ll notice the green painter’s tape I’m using to fasten the “seal” the back.
