Day #1327 Title: Little Ships
Location: South Shields
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We explored South Shields today (of course, we were searching for tupperware again!). This charming sculpture was close to the site of one cache, and the ships are two of half a dozen which are floating in a redeveloped dry dock, now surrounded by a housing estate.

Day #1322 Title: Bridge Illuminations
Location: Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: After the second day of BarCamp NorthEast4, Alistair and I went for a dusk walk along the Quayside to have some dinner and take some photos. I liked this view towards the Swing, High Level and Metro bridges across the Tyne, and the attractive reflections in the water. There had been a Bridges Festival on during the weekend, and the Swing Bridge had some unusual illuminations still in place.

Day #1279 Title: Go With The Flow
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 Speedlite, from behind through opaque plastic and coloured bowl @ 1/64; 1 x YN560 from camera right, through Stofen diffuser, @ 1/128
Notes: I spent much of the afternoon experimenting with water droplet shots. My main issue was the fact I was having to time the exposure to catch the drops and splash by hand, and also didn’t have anything to mount the pipette on, so the position of the drops landing made focussing rather difficult. Still, all a learning curve. This was the best shot of the lot, I liked the patterns and the purple colour! How it was done.

Day #1146Title: Quayside Dusk
Location: River Tyne, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: A day with grotty weather, very cold and a dour “cement lid” sky for most of the time. In the evening, we took a quick trip to the Quayside where at least the artificial lights gave the scene a splash of colour.
