Day #352

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 17th December 2008

Day #352Title: Viva Italia!
Location: Linton, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:
I had meetings in Linton and Cambridge today, and it was a lovely blue sky day so I took the camera out with me for five minutes at lunchtime. I found some fairly routine shots of old buildings around Linton, and was resigning myself to using one of those when I happened to see a new little Fiat parked on the street. I first noticed the badge on the front grille, but was stopped in my tracks by this tricoleur on the side – with some great water droplets to add some more texture. The sidelighting was hitting it at just the right angle.

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 #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 #334Title: Cutting Edge
Location: Sheffield
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: The morning dawned cold and foggy, and by evening it was back to that too. But for an hour or so in the early afternoon, the sun came out and I was able to dash out for a few photos close to the BarCampSheffield2 venue. This sculpture, Cutting Edge, is located on the pedestrian walkway from the main Railway station and the sun was hitting it in just the right angle for a good picture. We went out geocaching later on, and I got some atmospheric dusk fog shots too, but I still liked this one best for today’s image.

Day #330

Day #330Title: Carpe Diem
Location: Danbury
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I tooka quick trip over to Little Baddow and Danbury at lunchtime for some pictures. There were quite a few good ones to choose from, but this one struck a chord for the sentiment, as much as the fantastic lichen texture and glancing sunlight, which I found in the churchyard at Danbury. “Sieze The Day” is a good motto, and one thing I’ve learned from doing this project is just that: if you can, sieze the opportunity to take a picture whenever you are able, as it’s often these chance occurrences that produce some of the most memorable images. There are only 36 days left in total now. That’s just one roll of film, for those of you who remember celluloid!

Day #323

Day #323Title: On The Right Track
Location: Aldham, Near Marks Tey
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a lunchtime meeting in Marks Tey today, and so set off a little bit early to have a quick walk and look for a couple of caches. To begin with, the weather wasn’t very promising, but on my way back to the car, the sun poked through the clouds for a couple of seconds and I was able to capture this view with wonderful light.
