Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / Creative Bokeh Kit

Day #3269Title: The Stars Come Out To Play
Location: Covent Garden, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: I  was meeting friends in Covent Garden this evening for a Christmas get-together. It provided a great opportunity to go up to London a bit earlier and have a potter around to make some photos of the Christmas lights. This is the big tree in Covent Garden, photographed with my Creative Bokeh Kit to emphasise the star shapes. I liked the fluid feel of the building behind.

Day #3265Title: A Night On The Town
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: I spent the evening wandering around Chelmsford with some friends from Great Notley Photography Club, on a night photoshoot. We wanted to photograph some of the Christmas decorations and the shops. There didn’t seem to be many people about, but I managed to find a few to populate this shot.

Day #3260Title: That Sinking Feeling
Location: Hullbridge, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I was in the right place at the right time to witness another lovely sunset this afternoon. All too soon – they are now happening before 4pm. Can’t wait for the Winter Solstice when it will be starting to get light again!

Day #3258Title: The First Winter Sunset
Location: Fyfield, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: It’s officially Winter now, a month I’m not too keen on. At least it was sunny, eventually, today. The silhouettes of the trees gave me a nice frame to the shot, as the sun disappeared below the horizon for the first time this season.

Day #3237Title: Beyond The Event Horizon
Location:  Waterloo, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spotted this colourful light sculpture outside a hotel near Waterloo, as I was taking a walk after work. It kept changing colour, and was quite mesmerising. The black hole in the middle  seemed to be an event horizon beyond which the light did not want to travel.

Day #3229Title: Blackfriars By Night
Location:  South Bank, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was dark by the time I left work today, but I thought the colours of the lights along the Thames would make a nice shot. The ripples were a nice added extra.
