Day #3391Title: Iron-Clad Tree
Location: Noak Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This curious iron-clad tree was one I spotted during a little bike ride to find some geocaches today. I’m not sure if the metalwork was supposed to keep the tree together, it looked rather odd but has clearly been like that for many years.

Day #3390

Day #3390Title: Dash Cam
Location: Around Elstree, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was on a late shift today, moving the equipment we need for the Local Elections from our technical stores in Elstree to Millbank in central London. This involved four of us loading up a transit van and dragging it into town, then unloading again. There were multiple delays, including traffic chaos caused by a big fire at Staples Corner – not on our direct route, but the knock-ons of everyone else being diverted put us at least an hour behind schedule. This is my view from the front passenger seat of the van as we were finally on our way. We finished at Millbank at just after 10pm and another delay on the trains meant I didn’t get home until just before midnight. All very tedious!

Day #3387Title: Down By The Jetty
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s Dad’s birthday so I went over to visit my parents in Wivenhoe today. We had a nice lunch and plenty of the usual family chit chat. On my way home, I stopped off at the Quay for a quick walk to find some pictures. The tide was out but I found this rather forlorn looking kayak moored on the end of a pontoon overlooking the jetty, beached on the mud. The low sun brought out the best in the scene.

Day #3385

Day #3385Title: Géocaching Sans Frontières
Location: Adinkerke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Continuing my little geocaching trip abroad, today I drove to Belgium to find some new caches and have a ride on my fold up bike. There was a great series of 45 caches which straddled the Franco-Belgian border in a big circuit on back roads and cycle paths. It took me a little over 3 hours to complete. The weather was fantastic. Here’s my bike propped up in Belgium, while I’m standing in France (just). The convenience of open borders is something we are going to miss terribly when we’re out of Europe. For the moment, I’m making the most of it.

Day #3377Title: Urban Beachcomber
Location: Greenwich, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a meeting in London this evening and so caught the train in the morning and went for a long walk around the Greenwich peninsula for the afternoon. This lady was beachcombing near the flotsam sculpture along the banks of the Thames. I wonder what she found?

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.
