Day #3501Title: Library Lines
Location: Shoebury, Essex

Notes: Shoebury has a swanky new library. Its roof is quite funky – looking rather splendid in the sunshine today.

Day #3500Title: Get Thi’Sen There
Location: Little Canfield, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today’s geocaching outing was to Little Canfield where I had a great cycle and walk around a big trail of boxes. All but one found, it was hard work but a lovely day in the end.

Day #3492Title: Scrolls & Shadows
Location: Horndon-on-the-Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I met some friends for a quick geocaching event in Horndon-on-the-Hill today. Not somewhere I had ever been before. This interesting architectural detail was mounted on the side of one of the houses in the village. It was rather odd – a bit like a random bedhead, attached for no readily apparent reason!

Day #3477Title: A Lovely Day For A Solar Array
Location: Great Notley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I had a great walk around the fields surrounding Great Notley Country Park today. This Solar Array caught our attention at one stage – they must have been earning their corn today, the sun was out and there were only a few clouds in the sky.

Day #3467

Day #3467Title: High Key In High Easter
Location: High Easter, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: What a contrast to last week – when it was too hot to go out of the house! Overnight downpours gave way to persistent drizzle for most of the day. So the sky was rather bald anyway when I made this image of a rusty old sign in High Easter, while I was out doing a spot of geocaching. A bit of Photoshop fiddling enhanced it to give a high key image.

Day #3455Title: Dublin Docklands
Location: Dublin, Ireland
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We had another good wander around Dublin before heading to the airport late this afternoon. This is Samuel Beckett Bridge, which swings open to allow traffic through, in the heart of the regenerated Docklands. I liked the way it looked like an Irish harp. And I hadn’t realised until I wrote up today’s blog, but it was designed by one of my favourite architects, Santiago Calatrava. Not surprised!

Day #3453Title: Back Street Bike
Location: Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We had a great day pottering around Bray and then climbing Bray Head to find Europe’s oldest geocache. I spotted this bike as we were on our way to get some breakfast in town.
