Day #710

Day #710 Title: Fyne Dining
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today was the last of my 40@40 events! I went with friend Glynis for a lovely seafood lunch at the local Loch Fyne restaurant in Chelmsford. It’s been there a while, I gather, but I only just discovered it a few weeks ago. The sun was out and although it was too cold to sit outside, I enjoyed the shadows on the steps, so this is my image for the day.

Day #689 Title: Back At The Beeb
Location: White City, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a busy day of meetings in London today. One of which was lunch with some of my old Engineering buddies Malcolm, Chung and Paul from the BBC. It’s quite a while since I last set foot in Telly Centre, and it was good to see them and catch up with all their news. Hopefully it won’t be as long before we get together again. Another successful 40@40 achieved.

Day #656 Title: Pleasure Beach
Location: Blackpool
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Alistair and I were helping out at BarCamp Blackpool today, which was being held in a conference suite of the Pleasure Beach. It was in a wonderful Art Deco building, and our lunch time view was from the balcony overlooking the huge rollercoaster. This was taken later in the evening, when some wonderful light was to be seen coming off the Irish Sea.

Day #631 Title: Neon Glow
Location: Spitalfields Market, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I met up with some friends for dinner in London this evening, before we all headed off to a party. We decided to find something to eat in Spitalfields Market, and we were mesmerised by the constantly changing neon lights in parts of the building.

Day #622

Day #622 Title: Guardians
Location: Highgate Cemetry, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: One thing that my 40@40 challenge has given me is a good excuse to finally get around to doing things I’ve been promising to do for ages. Today, I met up with friend Simon to do another one on the list – we visited Highgate Cemetry for a tour and some photography. It’s a fascinating place, with many interesting nooks and crannies to see. The Western Cemetry is only accessed via a guided tour, which was very informative. This image was taken at the mausoleum of Julius Beer, which is  the largest memorial in the cemetry. The impressive doors are cast bronze and have marvellous decoration and a lovely symmetry.

Day #620

Day #620 Title: Open Wide
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We had an evening photo shoot at Ingatestone CC tonight. I saw this image of the window of a local pub, throwing a huge shadow on the wall from a nearby street lamp. Obviously some people think that Autumn is still a way off, and they want the window open wide.
