Day #310

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 5th November 2008

Day #310Title: Up The Garden Path
Location: Moulsham Mill, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Found myself at Moulsham Mill again this evening, this time to judge a photo competition for Chelmsford Camera Club. And I realised I hadn’t yet got a picture by the end of the evening. But one thing I’ve learned over the last 310 days is not to panic – picture opportunities will present themselves. Just as I was leaving, I noticed this path through an ornamental garden, and rather liked the light filtering through the trees, even though it was pretty dark.

Day #288Title: Acer Palmetum
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM

Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I went to put out the recycling for the dustmen this morning, and almost walked into this across the path! Argh! Not really so incey wincey. Just managed to keep my composure and grab the camera to shoot the distinctive Garden Spider, Araneus diadematus

Day #280Title: Swing Into Autumn
Location: Harlow Common
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I was visitng a client in Harlow today, and was invited to wander round their magnificent garden. Ths long shadows, golden leaves and swing caught my eye to make a nice picture.

Day #183

Day #183Title: Half Full Or Half Empty?
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is “a phrase or saying” – so here we have, The Glass Is Half Full/Half Empty. At the moment, I would have to say it’s half empty. I’ve been having a bad week generally, and just when you think it can’t get any worse… This evening, shortly after I’d taken this, I managed to trip over in the garden. So now I have two sore knees, a slightly fat lip, scratched glasses and a bruised ego. Wonderful. On a slightly more positive note, at least we’ve made it to Half Way today – day 183/366. Congrats to all who have come this far too.

Day #146

Day #146Title: Singin’ In The Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is Song Titles, so I thought I would take advantage of the beautiful Bank Holiday weather to present you with a one-off, exclusive performance of “Singin’ In The Rain”. It was hammering down at the time – I hope you all appreciate how I suffer for my art! I haven’t attempted any self-portraits before, so please be kind to me…
