Day #350

Posted by Caz on Monday, 15th December 2008

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!

Day #348

Day #348Title: Citypoint Evening
Location: Moorgate
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: An utterly foul day, weatherwise, today. It rained and rained. In the evening, I was in London for the BBC Backstage Christmas party, held for the London web dev community. It was a short walk from Liverpool Street, but a damp one! This was just outside Citypoint. I took some others without people in, but just liked the way this couple accidentally walked into the frame, huddling under their brolly.

Day #346

Day #346Title: Beat The Rush
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 Theme is Movement, so I nipped out as it was getting dark to photograph the traffic trails on the A12. Not a great shot, but it’s the best I could do with only a few minutes to spare.

Day #341

Day #341Title: Mersey Sunset
Location: Liverpool
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: We went for a 5 mile walk around the town to find some geocaches during BarCampLiverpool, and happened to be passing the Mersey just as the sun was sinking low. Great timing.

Day #331

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 26th November 2008

Day #331Title: High Street Illuminations
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Hobson’s Choice with photos for today: I only took two, as I was busy at meetings for most of the day. Found myself in Chelmsford late this afternoon, and took this “insurance” shot of the Christmas lights. It’s not exactly Blackpool, is it?

Day #329

Day #329Title: On Song
Location: Cliffs Pavillion, Wesctcliffe-on-Sea
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Runrig have been one of my favourite bands for getting on 20 years. I first saw them live in Cambridge in 1989, and must have been to around 25 gigs over the years. The last time was December 2003 in Edinburgh when I was building my unsuccessful FRPS portfolio. Since then, they’ve not toured a great deal, or if they have, I’ve not been able to go for whatever reason. But today, they were on my doorstep (Westcliffe isn’t too far) so I went to their show with a couple of long-time friends and Runrig fans from Chelmsford. It was a great gig – still sounding good. Some of the audience were a bit stuffed, but we had a good time! Managed to sneak a few pictures with the compact camera which was in my bag. Thanks for the music and a reminder of how much better it is when heard live!
