Location: Stebbing, Essex

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 #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.

Day #3337Title: Snowdrops In The Sunshine
Location: Ulting, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby 5.8mm Fisheye
Notes: After another busy day sorting things out at home and taking a car full of stuff to the recycling centre, I headed to Ulting for a few photos, as it was only a short detour. The snowdrops are out in the churchyard, and I decided to get down low with my Lensbaby fisheye lens, which gives lots of lovely internal lens flare.

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.
