Day #1216

Day #1216 Title: Marconi Memorabilia
Location: Sandford Mill Pumping Station
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I enjoyed a photoshoot with the Chelmsford Flickr Walk group this morning. We visited Sandford Mill Pumping Station on one of its few public open days a year. We were surprised what we found – all sorts of overflow from the main Chelmsford & Essex Museum at Oaklands Park – including lots of old radio and TV equipment. Very appropriate as today is International Marconi Day. Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society were operating two special wireless stations for the day – one voice and one Morse code. It was geek heaven! I thought this picture would make a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #59 – Gauges, Meters And Indicators.

Day #1168Title: More Power, Igor!
Location: Maker Faire, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another enjoyable day at the Maker Faire. This was one of a pair of musical Tesla Coils made by Brightarcs which entertained the crowds. I loved the different paths taken by the lightening. I also thought it made a great find for Treasure Hunt Theme #19 – Jagged.

Day #1098

Day #1098Title: Purple Plasma
Location: Oaklands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Despite feeling a little under the weather with colds today, Alistair and I decided to take a walk to get some fresh air this afternoon. We ended up at Oaklands Park again (having visited on Day #1096), and had a quick look at the Plasma Globe in the museum. I loved the dancing purple and blue rays when you put your hand to the glass. A good image for Treasure Hunt Theme #37 – Psychedelic
