Day #3285Title: Images From The Garden – December
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / x4 Close Up Filter
Notes: I’ve had just one Treasure Hunt theme outstanding for a while now, the December garden shot. Until today, it’s been looking rather lacklustre and I haven’t felt very compelled to find a picture. But this morning it was foggy and super frosty, so I ventured out with the Lensbaby to make this dreamy shot of the overgrown grasses on my lawn! Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – December Monthly Project.

Day #3276Title: Unpalatable
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Friends who went to America recently brought me back these gifts. Hmmm. I’m not a great fan of American chocolate at the best of times, but this bar really is pretty unpalatable. I can’t bring myself to open it. However, it makes a good prop for Treasure Hunt Theme #42 – In The News. He’s barely been out of the news during 2016, and I suspect it will only get worse during 2017.

Day #3275Title: Home Sweet Home
Location: Hadleigh Country Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: Today I went to Hadleigh Country Park to do a spot of bramble clearance with some geocaching friends (another “Cache In, Trash Out” event). Afterwards I had a walk in the park to pick up a few more caches. I knew this one was in a bird box, and had had the foresight to bring along my little blue tit sitting on its tiny bird box peg, to set up this shot to play with scale. (Here are some others I’ve done in the past). I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #17 – Bird Bath Or Box.

Day #3274Title: Barely There
Location: Galleywood Common, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: This morning was spent running errands. By almost noon I had finished and was on my way home across Galleywood Common when I noticed these feint trees struggling to be seen through the mist and fog which has lingered since dawn. I thought they would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #48 – Midday.

Day #3273Title: Tea Bag Tree
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I went into town to buy some holographic wrapping paper today, and then learned how to fold the pattern for this little Christmas Tree on YouTube. Apparently it’s a Tea Bag Fold Tree! Perfect for me, and Treasure Hunt Theme #52 – Origami.

Day #3272Title: Facing The Washing Up
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / x4 Close Up Filter
Notes: The car is in for its MOT and service today, it sounds like it’s going to be expensive. So I’m confined to the house doing lots of jobs. A big pile of washing up was awaiting me, but at least it got my attention – the perfect opportunity for Treasure Hunt Theme #19 – Bubbles.

Day #3270Title: Burning Bright
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: This afternoon I popped over to visit mum and dad to help them put up their Christmas tree. When we had finished, I borrowed this tea light holder for a quick photoshoot – perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #22 – Candlelight.
