Day #1454 Title: Evening Clouds
Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: This afternoon I headed down to Kent to visit friends for Christmas. I was able to take a quick walk around the pretty village of Elham before the sun finally set. This is a lamp post near the main square.

Day #1450 Title: Enjoy A Taste Of Christmas
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I was in town to do some final bits of Christmas shopping this afternoon. The market was in full swing in the High Street. This was shot from the hip – in one take – so I was quite pleased with the framing and sharpness. I thought it would make a great find for Treasure Hunt Theme #65 – Environmental Portrait.

Day #1444 Title: The Showroom
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: An expensive day: I had to take the car in for its annual MOT and service first thing this morning. It’s a VW Polo with 90K+ miles on the clock, but being a TDi diesel it’s likely to go on forever (or until the rest of it drops to bits). Thankfully it’s not that bad yet – but it does need a few pounds spending on it now – the bill came to several hundreds. On the walk back to the garage to pick it up, I passed the VW Showroom which was trying to tempt me into buying a new shiny – these are sadly several orders of magnitude out of my price bracket at present. So back to my old faithful!

Day #1438 Title: Windy Evening
Location: Broadgate Circle
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I had a few minutes to spare before getting my train this evening, so had a quick walk around Broadgate Circle again. I liked the long exposure on the Christmas tree as the wind was blowing the branches about.

Day #1436 Title: A Shard Of Light
Location: River Thames, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This evening I met up with a couple of friends after work to do some night photography in London. We were only intending to stay a couple of hours but ended up finishing very late. Still, it was an enjoyable walk around St Paul’s and the environs. This was shot under the Millennium Bridge, looking back down the Thames towards Tower Bridge. The Shard is going up very quickly and is almost fully glazed now.

Location: Whitecross Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I was  at a loose end for a few minutes whilst waiting for my train this evening, so went back to Whitecross Place and found some interesting picture opportunities. And some purple :-)

Day #1433 Title: Enchanted Evening
Location: Syon House
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I spent a very enjoyable evening with some Flickr friends at Syon House for their Enchanted Woodland event. Lots of low light photography – trees, reflections and lasers! All good fun. This is a statue in the fountain outside the Orangery – inside of which is the laser show.
