Day #3353

Posted by Caz on Monday, 6th March 2017

Day #3353Title: Finchingfield Cliché
Location: Finchingfield, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I had a great walk from Great Bardfield to Finchingfield and back today, looking for geocaches. The weather was sunny, showery, windy and it even hailed at one point! Just as we arrived in Finchingfield, the sun came out again, so I had to make the classic shot from the cliché viewpoint. It’s allegedly the most photographed village in Essex.

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 #3351

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 #3350Title: Ghost Behind The Curtain
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It got past 11pm and I realised I hadn’t made any photos today. So I decided on a quick waft in the dark with a strip of LEDs. I didn’t notice myself until it came time to process them – and actually I quite liked to see me lurking in the background. I love the fluidity of the bendy LED strip here, it looks like folds in a curtain.

Day #3349Title: Spring Under The Old Oak
Location: Fryerning, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby 5.8mm Fisheye
Notes: It was a lovely sunny day but it took me ages to get off my backside and get out. I went crocus hunting in Fryerning and found the usual impressive patch below the big old oak tree on Church Green.

Day #3348

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.
