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 #3271Title: Hilda’s Trio
Location: Rowhedge, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I had a great walk around several village footpaths today, collecting geocaches, before attending the Essex Cachers’ Christmas Dinner in Layer Breton. I was greatly amused when I spotted these “Hilda Ogden” flying ducks murial on a wall in Rowhedge. It had to be pic of the day.

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.

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 #3268Title: Take The Strain
Location: Maldon, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: It promised to be sunny this morning, so I set off to Maldon for a potter along the Quay. It’s usually fertile ground for photography. This morning’s low sun cast these amazing big fat shadows of a chain mooring one of the old Thames Barges to the quayside. It just had to be mono.
