Day #1826

Day #1826 Title: Perpendiculars
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: Finally some sunshine today! So I took the opportunity to walk into town and find a couple of geocaches. One was near the Salvation Army Citadel (which I last photographed on Day #443). This is a different angle of the same building. I liked the striking graphic shapes against the blue sky.

Day #1809 Title: Piccadilly Pavements
Location: Piccadilly Circus, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm f/1.7
Notes: This evening I went to London to a lovely surprise birthday party, for a good friend of the family, at the Athenaeum Club in Piccadilly. I was too busy enjoying the do to take many pictures inside! But on the way home, I stopped near Piccadilly Circus to make a few pictures of the bright lights and wet streets.

Day #1770 Title: I Want To Slide
Location: Wood Lane Underground Station
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: It’s amazing how many new things you see when you vary your routine – today I took the Hammersmith & City Line from Liverpool Street to White City instead of using the Central Line as I do normally. I was rather tempted to slide down these smoothly inviting handrails on the way out, but cowardice go the better of me!

Day #1734

Day #1734 Title: Brighton Sunny Morning
Location: Brighton Pavilion
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: We arrived in Brighton in plenty of time for the BarCamp this morning. And as it was gloriously sunny, Alistair and I decided to run a geocaching session as one of the first on the board. Any excuse to chase tupperware! We took a group of about 10 BarCampers around the local streets to find 3 caches, one of which was very close to this viewpoint of the marvellously mad Pavilion, one of my favourite architectural subjects in Brighton. It’s years since I got a reflection shot as good as this though (last time was on film!). See more pictures from the weekend.

Day #1728 Title: The View From The 10th
Location: Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Another wet and windy day today, so I decided to stay snug in my room, put my aching feet up and sort some of the hundreds of photos I’ve taken during my trip. This was the view from my window mid-morning. Read more about my stay.

Day #1727

Day #1727 Title: Tatami Dining
Location: Shimada, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I had an early start this morning to catch a Shinkansen to Shizuoka to meet my friend Tomoo. We then got on a local train to Shimada where he hired a car for the day and we went exploring in the tea production heartland of Japan. The first stop was at the NARO Institute of Vegetable and Tea Science where Tomoo used to work a few years ago. They were having an open day with hands-on exhibits. This picture was taken at our lunch time shop in the beautiful traditional restaurant of a local tea factory. We had a tea-related feast, with just about every dish using green tea as a flavouring. It was delicious! Then we hopped back into the car for a visit to Ocha No Sato – the World Tea Museum. There were more interesting exhibits and the chance to take part in a traditional tea ceremony – something that up to now I had still not done during my time in Japan. Our final stop before heading back to Tokyo was at Horai-bashi – at 894m, it’s the longest wooden pedestrian bridge in the world, spanning the river Ooi. We walked across and back again, just to say we had done it! All in all, it was a great day out, but tiring once more, so I think I will have to take it easy again tomorrow! Read more about my day.
