Day #366

Day #366Title: The Years Tick By
Location: Faulkbourne
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I have reached the end of my 366 journey. I can’t quite believe I’ve made it this far. But I’ve had a very enjoyable year. So although I’ll be sorry to see the end of 2008, I’m happy that I have decided to continue my Photo A Day into 2009. This image was taken during a quick lunchtime trip around Witham, White Notley and Cressing. It’s a lovely Art Nouveau lamp from the church of St Germanus, Faulkbourne. Although I wasn’t specifically aiming at a date theme, this was the best image of the day as the weather was pretty cold and grey. I’ve just made it monochrome, no other effects added. A fitting end to the year’s pictures.

Day #363

Day #363Title: Croxton’s Mill
Location: Little Waltham
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: It was a sunny day, but bitterly cold for most of it. Nevertheless, Alistair and I set out for a day’s geocaching mission around Little Waltham and Broomfield. The Nature Reserve is a lovely place to walk and for the most part, the sun shone. By the time we had completed the caches here, the light was beginning to fade and it was freezing. But we then headed south to Galleywood to look for a special 500 Finds Geocoin in one of my cache hides, as it was Alistair’s 500th geocache. Can’t imagine how that got there. Not that he’s an addict, or anything ;-)

Day #359

Day #359Title: Dusk At Dry Dock
Location: Wivenhoe Quay
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I drove over to stay with my parents for Christmas, and managed a quick walk around the Quay area of Wivenhoe before the light disappeared compeletely. Yes, I know it doesn’t look very dry. But as previously explained, it’s the name of the place.

Day #354

Day #354Title: Rest A While
Location: Battlesbridge
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had to go to the antiques centre at Battlesbridge to pick something up for Christmas today. One of the shops there sells old garden furniture, so I took a wander around and spotted this lovely table and chairs, casting a shasow on the wall. Shame I didn’t have too much time to sit and rest a while…

Day #353

Day #353Title: Ceiling Details
Location: Chelmsford Cathedral
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a few minutes to spare while in Chelmsford this morning, so took the opportunity to have a quick look inside the Cathedral. I’d never set foot in the place before, but having seen some photos of the interior recently on Flickr, I decided it was worth a visit. I love the ceiling pattern.

Day #350

Day #350Title: Avenue Of Steel
Location: Liverpool Street, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a meeting in Maldon this morning, and took a few grey, damp shots on my way home, but I wasn’t particularly happy with them. So when I went to London for another meeting this evening, I took the camera along. My friend showed me a new building just behind Exchange Square at Liverpool Street, which has some dramatic architecture and was trimmed up for Christmas. It’s a great place for photos, and no “jobsworthy” security guards in sight!
