Day #3396

Posted by Caz on Tuesday, 18th April 2017

Day #3396Title: Dark Skies And Looming Clouds
Location: Woodbridge, Suffolk
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a great day out geocaching around Woodbridge today. It’s not somewhere I had visited much in the past, but there were plenty of boxes to search for. This landscape was enhanced by the dramatic cloudscape above.

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 #3321

Day #3321Title: Flint Cottage
Location: Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Another dull day, looks like February is going to be rather wet and grim! I had to drop off some more books at the second hand bookshop in Hylands Park stables today, and took a quick walk around the grounds afterwards. The old Woodcutter’s Cottage has featured in a Mono MayHem image from 2012 and a I chose a close up of one of the windows on Day #2487 in 2014. Today it looked rather forlorn thanks to the grey sky. Mono seemed to work best.

Day #3308

Day #3308Title: The Stonemason’s Craft
Location: Rawreth, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: After a day at home shredding all the things yesterday, I was beginning to go mad. A trip to the recycling plant with 8 bags of shreds was the excuse to escape the house for a bit today! I had a quick walk around the lovely little church of St. Nicholas in Rawreth afterwards, found a trio of nearby geocaches and then returned home to tackle the next pile of admin.

Day #3307

Day #3307Title: Mindless Tedium
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes: I’ve had the most boring day – sorting, filing and shredding. It’s one of the reasons I hate January, which is always a time for mopping up last year’s admin. Trouble is, I only did the bare minimum this time last year, so there’s more than usual to make up for. Argh! I know there’s several more days ahead which will be just as tedious, so expect more grumps!

Day #3296

Day #3296Title: Morbid Fascination
Location: Stock, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2
Notes: I had some errands to run in Billericay this afternoon, when the sun was out. Unfortunately, by the time I had finished, it had disappeared again. But I stopped off at Stock Church on the way home to see if I could find any pictures. I admit I’m a bit weird and enjoy wandering around graveyards looking for unusual headstones. I spotted this one, which I thought was rather morbid! Classic Victorian Gothic, perhaps… But it makes a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #73 – Wings.

Day #3295Title: Bug-Eyed Design
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / Lensbaby Scout / 50 mm f/2 Double Glass Optic / x0.6 Wide Angle Converter / x4 Close Up Filter
Notes: I’ve been meaning to tidy my photographic studio (aka the box room) for ages. I finally made the time today, and now have a clear workspace again. I thought I would show you one of my lovely old vintage film cameras – it’s a Univex Mercury II (CX) Half-Frame 35mm rangefinder. The Lensbaby wide angle converter and close up filter gave it a bit of a bug-eyed appearance, but to be honest, the design is pretty eye-popping anyway! Although I completed my Retro 365 project in 2015, I never got around to scanning and uploading the final couple of months. And I hardly picked up a film camera in 2016, to my shame. Both things I hope to rectify this year –  a resolution of sorts. Anyway, that’s a shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #20 – Camera in the bag.
