Day #1710 Title: Matsumoto Castle
Location: Matsumoto, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: After a very early start to attend a Buddhist ceremony at the Zenkō-ji temple just after first light this morning, we enjoyed a Monk’s breakfast at our lodgings then packed our bags once more to move on. Our first stop was Yudanaka Onsen to visit the Snow Monkeys (Japanese Macaques) which bathe in the hot spring pools. Lunch was taken in the charming little town of Obuse before getting the train to Matsumoto. The afternoon was free for us to wander, and I set off for the foreboding Castle for a look around. The inside was pretty dark and menacing, but I arrived at this classic viewpoint of the outside just as the sun was bathing it in some golden light. Read more about my day.

Location: Danbury
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS

Day #1645 Title: Platform Puddles
Location: Ingatestone Station
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: July has carried on where June left off – more heavy rain! This scene presented itself when I got off the train this evening. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #60 – Urban Fragments.

Day #1615

Day #1615 Title: La Nuit Parisienne
Location: Ile des Cygnes, Paris
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Who’s crazy idea was it to walk around Paris all night taking photos? Not mine, but I seemed to think it was a good one! So off we set this afternoon with a dozen other folks from the London Flickr Meetups group, arriving in Paris Gare du Nord around 8pm. We caught the Métro out to La Défense for sunset – not that we saw it as it was too cloudy! Then back to the centre of Paris on the RER. This was our second stop of the evening at the Ile des Cygnes, looking towards the Eiffel Tower. It was a very long night and this was just the start… more in tomorrow’s blog!
