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 #3284Title: Remembering A Princess
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / x4 Close Up Filter / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: 2016 seems to have seen an extraordinary number of high profile celebrity deaths. Icons from my childhood, teens and beyond have departed. And the last four days has been particularly bad – Rick Parfitt, George Michael, Liz Smith and today, after being taken ill on a flight on 23rd, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher. What a week! I’m wondering who else will go before 2016’s last seconds finally tick away.

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.

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 #3257Title: Does A Leaf Make A Sound When It Falls?
Location: Billericay, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: I went for a stroll around Lake Meadows in Billericay this afternoon. There I spotted this leaf, quietly resting on the mossy trunk of a fallen tree. I wondered if it had made a sound as it landed. This time, I liked the Twist optic best, which exhibits angular twist at the edges, mimicking the classic Peztval effect.
