Trip To The Toon

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 25th March 2010

I enjoyed an excellent long weekend in Newcastle, visiting Alistair for the BarCamp NorthEast3 event, which was held in the Centre for Life in the heart of the city. The BarCamp itself was fun as ever, and we also managed to get out and about around the town on some geocaching and photographic trips.

Days 701-800

Yesterday I passed the Day #800 milestone, admittedly with not a very interesting picture! But you can’t win them all…

Some of the intervening days were quite nice though – so here’s a new Desktop Background for you:

February ’10 Review

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 3rd March 2010

February seemed to be the month of near-incessant rain and floods. Not, on the face of it, very promising from a photographic point of view.

However, I did enjoy a  photowalk around Cambridge with friends from the GNPC. The weather was a bit overcast, but I got a few interesting shots, the best of which was chosen for Day #769 – mainly because it fitted one of the Treasure Hunt themes so well.

Here are a few more which I was pleased with:

I also managed to get to a local rugby match with Rodney, a friend from the Chelmsford Photowalk group. I hadn’t been to a game in ages, and although it was cold and dull you can really see the concentration on the players’ faces:

The end of the month saw another patch of bad weather, so I stayed indoors and decided to have some fun with food dye in water and experiment with fluid dynamics. I was very pleased with the results:
