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 #311

Day #311Title: Wet Pavements
Location: Lincoln’s Inn Fields
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent the day in London visiting former colleagues for lunch, and then at another friend’s studio during the afternoon to take some images for possible use as Christmas cards. Sadly, the results weren’t partcularly good – we completely failed to light a pudding – and our painting-with-light efforts turned out a bit paltry. Then I went to the London Photographers’ Meetup Group drinks in The Strand for a couple of hours this evening. This image was taken on the way back to the tube, when It took a detour around some of the back streets on my way to Holborn.

Day #305

Day #305Title: It’s Halloweeeeeen!
Location: Central Line under London
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I went to London this evening with a group of geek friends, to see Avenue Q at the Noel Coward Theatre. We had a great evening, and being Hallowe’en, there were lots of odd characters to be seen out and about. Alistair was one of the not-so-odd!

Day #298

Day #298Title: Real Life Meets Second Life
Location: The Magic Circle & Second Life
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today, I attended the London hub of the world’s first global web conference, <head>. It was a lot of fun, especially as it was being held at the Magic Circle HQ in Euston. Not only were various folks there in person, but there were live linkups with other hubs around the globe, as well as in Second Life. The conference continues, largely online, over the weekend. Horray for broadband!

Day #276

Day #276Title: Fancy Facilities
Location: The Strand, London
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I was in London today to see a friend’s new photographic studio, which he’s just moved into. And afterwards, I went on to the London Photography Meetup Group get together at The George on The Strand. I have been meaning to go along for ages, but it’s only just coincided with a trip to London. Anyway, outside I was admiring the Royal Courts of Justice, and took a few shots before going into the pub. But I also liked the look of this fancy scrollwork surrounding the entrance to the underground public loos.

Day #272

Day #272Title: Sunday Morning On The Thames
Location: Richmond
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After an evening containing beer, plenty of Werewolf and lots of silliness, the happy Campers finally flaked out around 3am last night. I managed to grab some sleep but woke before 8am. After a spot of breakfast, I went to look at the Thames and was rewarded with a wonderfully atmospheric view of the bridge at Richmond. There was lots of mist floating on the water, the birds were wheeling and then a team of rowers hove into view under the arches. Magic atmosphere. I knew I was unlikely to better it later in the day, so although it’s an early one, it’s going to be Picture Of The Day.
