Day #3384Title: La Maison De Dieu!
Location: Audinghen, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: On Tuesday, the day after my new passport arrived, I made a snap decision to have a little trip to France and Belgium to do some geocaching, as I’d never visited either country since starting to look for tupperware. So I booked a very last minute trip and found myself on the Le Shuttle today, finally making it onto French soil around tea time (there were a few things I needed to do before leaving home, and then there was a tedious hour and a half delay in the crossing). I headed along the French coast towards Cap Gris Nez and found myself at this remarkable little church, Eglise Saint Pierre d’Audinghen. It was rebuilt in 1960 after being destroyed by allied bombing during World War II. The first striking thing is its huge concrete open bell tower in the shape of a lyre – which is what initially made me stop to take a look around. The porch is illuminated by this wonderful stained glass verse from Matthew VII. The sun was catching the letters at just the right angle to throw some fantastic coloured shadows on the paving. There was even a cache by the gate! Perfect. I knew it had to be picture of the day.

Day #3383Title: Shadow Play – April
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: The past few days have been rather dull, so no chance of getting my monthly shadows project. But this morning the sun was out and giving me plenty of opportunity as I walked the pavement in Westminster, past the Houses of Parliament. Job done! Treasure Hunt Theme #4 – April Monthly Project.

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 #3381Title: All Points Of The Compass
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I have been meaning to get my passport renewed for ages – the previous one expired in April 2015! Last week I finally pulled my finger out, stopped prevaricating, and completed the paperwork. This morning, I was delighted to take delivery of a shiny new 10-year UK/European Union passport, even if the UK doesn’t last that long in the EU! It finally means I can explore further afield again. Hmmmm. Where shall I go?

Day #3380Title: Stow Maries Spire
Location: Stow Maries, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This afternoon I went for a walk around some footpaths near Stow Maries. The church was a convenient place to park and this view of the rather quaint building was what I saw as I headed off across some nearby paddocks en route to the old railway line, which is now a nature reserve.
