Day #3386Title: It’s Good To Have Goals
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: Today I was very busy writing the logs for my French and Belgian geocaching adventure. I had had a tiring trip, so sitting on the sofa all day with my feet up seemed like a very good idea. I didn’t got out, and I was very absorbed with my task. The next day, I had a horrible sinking feeling that I had forgotten to take a photo for today! I was gutted. But then, in a moment of straw-clutching, I looked at my phone and realised that I had taken this image of some of my unactivated geocoins on the right day. Relief has never been so palpable! I will activate them when I reach 8000 finds (currently on 7261), have set 100 hides (currently at 72), or cached in Germany, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic and Austria, respectively. It’s good to have goals. And it saved my Photo A Day bacon! Phew.

Day #3382Title: European Driving Essentials
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It’s years since I drove my own car abroad (although I did have a hire car when I visited Spain in 2014) so I needed to stock up on a few essential items which are required to drive in France: High-viz jacket, GB sticker, headlamp deflectors and two breathalyser kits! Yes, I’m on my way to the continent on Thursday after arranging a very last-minute trip.

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 #3348Title: Don’t Spill A Drop
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlite
Notes: I had a frustrating session in the studio today trying to photograph splashes. I was using a different liquid mixture to before, which should have provided a bigger splash, but the kit just wasn’t working as I expected and all I was getting were pathetic little collisions (if anything). Then I started feeling a bit unwell, so gave up. This will have to do – pleasant enough, but not what I was trying to achieve. I will have to have another go in due course.

Day #3338Title: Carnation Deconstruction
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN-14EX Macro Ring Flash
Notes: I bought a bunch of Carnations from the shops yesterday, with the intention of making another Microfleur image. Once the blooms had been in the microwave for a minute or so, they were ready to be taken to the studio for photographing. It’s the first time I’ve tried using the Panny GX8 and 45mm Leica Macro lens with my copystand – they worked every bit as well as the Canon and my 100mm Macro.

Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: Here are some orchids at Mum & Dad’s, taken during a busy day. I love the patterns on the petals. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #46 – Patterns.

Day #3334Title: The Temperature Is Rising
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH / Yongnuo YN 560 Speedlite
Notes: It’s 15th February, which means one thing to a lot of us serial 365’ers – Galileo‘s Birthday (he was born 453 years ago). Several of us have become accustomed to photographing our Galileo Thermometers in his honour. This is my version for the year. It’s curious to not that the bulb with the colourless liquid in it used to be blue! Not sure what’s happened there, but it has been sitting on my windowsil for ages.
