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 #3355Title: TMA-19M
Location: Science Museum, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went to London today, primarily for an event taking place this evening, but we decided to catch the train around lunch time so we could spend the afternoon in the Science Museum’s Robots exhibition. It was all about the history of robotics, which was very interesting. We also took the time to have a look in some of the other galleries, and made a special effort to find ESA Astronaut Tim Peake’s Soyuz capsule, TMA-19M, which has recently been added to the collection. The tiny capsule took him to the ISS and back during his historic Principia mission last year. Both Alistair and I are space geeks, so we spent quite a bit of time having a look at it. This is the view into the capsule through the navigation porthole. It made a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #28 – Exhibition.

Day #3352Title: Shadow Play – March
Location: East Dulwich, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I went to meet friends for lunch in East Dulwich today. I was fully expecting to get wet, given the weather forecast. But I managed to dodge the heavy rain. Just as I arrived the sun even came out – so I was able to make my monthly Shadow Play shot before heading for the restaurant. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #3 – March Monthly Project.

Day #3351Title: Just Add Porridge
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I bought this set of lovely lacquered spoons, and the washi paper, when I visited Japan in 2012. I’m not sure if the Japanese understand the concept of porridge, but they reminded me of the three bears’ cutlery, just waiting for some steaming porridge to arrive. I also used them for my picture on Day #1881 but they have sat in my props drawer ever since. So I thought I would try a slightly different set up for today’s shot. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #61 – Spoons.

Day #3342Title: There’s Always A Lamp
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Lots more jobs to do today, confined to home. With Storm Doris about, I’m glad I didn’t have to go out anywhere. It got to later this evening and I still hadn’t made a picture, so I turned to my new lamp – There’s Always A Lamp. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #42 – Lamplight.

Day #3339Title: Shadow Play – February
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I have been waiting for some sunshine recently, to make my monthly Shadow Play shot. I caught sight of the refractions and shadows made by my favourite wibbly glass dish this afternoon. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #2 – February Monthly Project.

Day #3328Title: His Master’s Voice
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This old 78rpm record has been kicking around at home for ages. It’s not playable – I think it came as part of a set of place mats and coasters. But I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #55 – Remember This? It won’t be long before the young ‘uns of today will have no idea what this is…
