Day #3267Title: Three Chevrons With Ivy
Location: Hawkwell, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: Having covered over nine miles yesterday on my circular walk, I was ready for something a bit more relaxing today, so I chose to have a gentle potter around some of the footpaths of Hawkwell near Hockley. This graffiti detail caught my eye, painted on a random bit of street furniture (a BT cabinet, or similar). I liked the ivy muscling in on the action too.

Day #3266

Day #3266Title: The Pointless Stile
Location: Great Braxted, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I was out for a walk today with my geocaching friend Ray around the imposing perimeter of Braxted Park. The wall which surrounds the estate is about 3.5miles long. We didn’t walk the whole length, but covered one side which runs alongside a public footpath. At the start was the rather pointless stile – since the main gate is always open, it makes you wonder what purpose the stile actually serves.

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 #3264Title: Custard Coloured Car
Location: Eastbourne, East Sussex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I spotted this custard yellow VW Beetle as I was having a wander around Eastbourne on an otherwise grey and colourless day. I homed in on a little detail of the wheel arch and bonnet.

Day #3263Title: Misty In Mayland
Location: Mayland, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: The day dawned very foggy and the mist never really lifted all day. I was out on the remote Dengie Peninsula for most of the time, and it hung around eerily across the marshes. These trees provided welcome silhouetted shapes in the foreground.

Day #3262Title: Global Vision
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: A while back, I bought this tiny marble, with the continents etched onto the surface. It’s been sitting on my prop shelf since then. Today I thought it was about time I dusted it off and made a picture for Treasure Hunt Theme #37 – Globe. I also had to dust off the 5D and 100mm macro lens, which I haven’t used in ages.

Day #3261Title: Ramsey Island Reeds
Location: St. Lawrence Bay, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: The weather was bright and sunny again today, but cold. I decided to explore some of the sea wall along from St. Lawrence Bay this afternoon, and came across this bed of gently waving reeds as the sun was beginning to set. It cast a wonderful golden glow across the scene, with a bit of flare for good measure.
