Day #720 Title: On The Cycle Path
Location: Central Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today I met up with local Flickr friends Rodney and Bev for a photowalk in Chelmsford. We started in Central Park and made our way (via a nice, warm coffee shop!) out to Baddow Meads and along the river. While we were in Central Park, this cyclist passed us by on the bike half of the path. I just managed to catch him as he rode by on the ice.

Day #706 Title: By The Great Ouse
Location: Ely, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Four of us from GNPC had a rather enjoyable day out in Ely today, despite pouring rain first thing, the weather perked up immensely and we got some good photographic opportunities. We spent quite some time in the Cathedral, and had a good walk along the river too. This fisherman was quietly ensconced on the banks with a big brolly to shield him from the wind.

Day #705 Title: A Quiet Corner
Location: Oxted, Surrey
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent a very pleasant and leisurely lunch today with two fellow 365 folks, touchingthelight and Red Kite 2008. We arranged to meet up in Oxted, roughly midway between where the three of us live. The light wasn’t brilliant when we arrived, but we spent so long gassing in a quiet corner of the pub, plus feeding on an excellent menu, that by the time we decided to go for a little constitutional walk up the High Street, the drizzle had moved in and the light was terrible. I did manage to take this tableau of Ken and Caroline having a chat while I went to the bar. Another lovely 40@40 – just one to go now!

Day #702 Title: Cabaret!
Location: Roundhouse, Camden
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: After dodging torrential rain this afternoon travelling to and from a client meeting, I met up with good friend Julian for the evening. We had a lovey Thai dinner in Camden and then went to La Clique cabaret at The Roundhouse. An excellent show featuring jugglers, terrible magicians, acrobats and all-round performers. We weren’t really supposed to take pictures, but I managed to sneak this one quickly during the encoure. Another lovely 40@40 event.

Day #697 Title: Two Blue Bags
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This afternoon, I had to pop into town to go to the bank and run a few errands. I took a few shots in the High Street and waited for various characters to walk into the frame. As soon as I saw this lady with her two back-lit carrier bags, I knew I had the picture of the day.

Day #681 Title: Centre Of Attention
Location: Westfield, Shepherds Bush
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I met my former team leader Veronica today, as another 40@40 event. We have both worked in Shepherds Bush for years, and while I was around there were only a few paltry shops to choose from for getting anything to eat. Since I left the BBC/Siemens, they have built Westfield, the biggest shopping centre in Europe, right by Television Centre.  So we had plenty of options of what to eat for lunch!
