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 #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 #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 #3321

Day #3321Title: Flint Cottage
Location: Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Another dull day, looks like February is going to be rather wet and grim! I had to drop off some more books at the second hand bookshop in Hylands Park stables today, and took a quick walk around the grounds afterwards. The old Woodcutter’s Cottage has featured in a Mono MayHem image from 2012 and a I chose a close up of one of the windows on Day #2487 in 2014. Today it looked rather forlorn thanks to the grey sky. Mono seemed to work best.

Day #3308

Day #3308Title: The Stonemason’s Craft
Location: Rawreth, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: After a day at home shredding all the things yesterday, I was beginning to go mad. A trip to the recycling plant with 8 bags of shreds was the excuse to escape the house for a bit today! I had a quick walk around the lovely little church of St. Nicholas in Rawreth afterwards, found a trio of nearby geocaches and then returned home to tackle the next pile of admin.

Day #3307Title: Mindless Tedium
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I’ve had the most boring day – sorting, filing and shredding. It’s one of the reasons I hate January, which is always a time for mopping up last year’s admin. Trouble is, I only did the bare minimum this time last year, so there’s more than usual to make up for. Argh! I know there’s several more days ahead which will be just as tedious, so expect more grumps!

Day #3305Title: Shadow Play – January
Location: Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2
Notes: I’ve been sorting out some books to get rid of and needed to drop them off at the second hand bookshop in Hylands House this afternoon. After a nice slice of cake and a cup of tea in the café there, I took a wander around the park as the sun was shining. I had almost finished and was on the way home when I spotted these fantastic shadows on a wall by the main gate. I’ve been wondering what to do for my Monthly Project this year – and have come up with the idea of Shadow Play. They will probably all be in mono, and maybe all square – I will see how the subjects develop over the year. So here we kick off Treasure Hunt Theme #1 – January Monthly Project.
