Day #3369Title: Terrible News From The TV
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: I had been debating whether to go into the office at Westminster today or just do my meeting by phone. In the end, I chose to work form home and once the news of the terrorist attack around the Houses of Parliament broke early this afternoon, I was very glad to be sitting on my sofa watching events unfold on the TV, instead of stuck inside a building very close to the action. Later on, I noticed a blood red sunset happening across the rooftops. With the TV aerials prominently in the frame and ominous clouds behind, it looked like an apocalyptic warning. It also makes a suitable shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #22 – Chimney(s).

Day #3368Title: Snaking Away
Location: Hockley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I made the most of the sunshine today and took myself off for a walk around Hockley Woods. One path lead me around the outskirts where I had this view across the fields. I loved the curvy tracks, snaking away into the distance. It seemed to cry out for the mono treatment.

Day #3367Title: Problematic
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’ve been struggling with some trigonometry today. I was trying to solve a puzzle which would give me the co-ordinates of a geocache in London. If my A Level maths teacher had told me I would need it for caching in 30 years’ time, I might have paid more attention! Still haven’t cracked it, but I’m not sure where I have gone wrong, so I think I will have to start again. Hey ho.

Day #3366Title: Welcome To Wilton’s
Location: Whitechapel, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After my conference had finished this afternoon, I had a Travelcard burning a hole in my pocket, so I decided to make the most of the remaining daylight and go hunting for a few geocaches before travelling home. One brought me here, to Wilton’s Music Hall, a fantastic old building in the heart of Whitechapel. It has a very chequered history, but has recently been restored and is now the oldest surviving music hall in the world. I loved the faded grandeur of the outside, it would be great to get a look inside the building sometime.

Day #3365Title: When The Sun Shines
Location: West Ham Station, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Another day in London for a conference, and I was changing trains through West Ham station to catch the Jubilee Line towards Stratford. It was an unfamiliar route, thanks to me trying to avoid a rail replacement bus service on my usual line. As I was crossing the pedestrian footbridge, the sun came out. I just had to stop to make a picture. I missed the first train, but another one came along quickly so it was worth the delay, and I wasn’t late for the start of the sessions.

Day #3364Title: Comings And Goings
Location: Stratford, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent the day in London at a conference and was making my way back via Stratford station. Thanks to one closed staircase and some bad signage, I just missed a train and had to wait another half hour for the next one. So I was rather bored and went looking for photo opportunities. These yellow stairs contrasted well with the Blue Hour going on in the background.

Day #3363Title: Brûlée
Location: Foxton, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had to go to Cambridgeshire today to run an errand and took the opportunity to take a walk to find some more geocaches around the village of Foxton. At one point there was a burned tree trunk by the side of the path, and the charcoal-like bark caught my attention.
