Day #716

Day #716 Title: Banksie’s Pigeons
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I was in town for a meeting today, and used a short cut alleyway between the High Street and a local car park. I’ve been that way before, but not very often. Today I noticed these two Banksie-esque pigeons cooing to each other on the wall. Most people just didn’t notice them, but that’s what the Photo A Day does for you – makes you see things you would otherwise pass by oblivious.

Day #670 Title: Coming In To Land
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Another day which dawned without much promise weather-wise – the light was dull and the sky white for the most part. But in this instance, I managed to catch some seagulls coming in to land by some swans as they were being fed some bread in Central Park, framing it without any intrusive sky in shot.

Day #665 Title: Bath Time
Location: At Home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: After a weekend of running around like a headless chicken, helping to organise BarCampLondon7, it was a great pleasure to have a nice relaxing bath this morning. Mr & Mrs Duck seem to be settling in nicely to their new home.

Day #652

Day #652 Title: Crewed By Pigeons
Location: Heybridge Basin, Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After a business meeting at lunch time, I decided to stop off for a quick walk at Heybridge Basin to get some fresh air and walk off lunch! The marina was full of colourful boats, but this old wreck in the estuary also caught my eye. It doesn’t look very seaworthy – and only the pigeons dared stand on board.

Day #641 Title: Making Waves
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Reflections are always more interesting when they are broken up by a few ripples. Today, I found an obliging duck who produced some rather nice patterns in the water by paddling furiously below the surface.

Day #619 Title: Swanning Around
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a few minutes to spare this morning before a meeting in the town, so went for a quick walk along the river. I spied this rather nice swan having a forgage amongst the water weed.
