During a walk around Chelmsford this afternoon, we visited the Wharf Road graffiti wall again. There’s always something different to see every time I go.

Despite a bit of a grey day today, Dad and I took a walk around Wivenhoe to get some fresh air. I saw a few photo opportunitites – here are three very different abstract shots from the outing.
Title: The Mark Of Zorro?
Location: Southend-on-Sea, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: A little detail from the side wall of Adventure Island in Southend. Has Zorro been around here recently?
I haven’t been on many dedicated photo outings this month, but have managed to keep up with various projects including another three Face Down Tuesday shots - Down With The Ducks Edition, Stalking The Wildlife Edition and Falling Off A Log Edition.
This time of year is always great for Finding Fungi and I’ve had several very successful forays to local woods in search of various specimens. This little group caught my eye in Swan Wood on 19th and nearly made it for Day #2119.
I’ve also made several new 50@50 images while out on my travels, #38 at Sandford Mill, #39 one evening in London, #40 and #43 on Galleywood Common, #41 on my way to work and #42 on an evening walk in Hoxton.
I’m always a sucker for some Glorious Graffiti with another visit to the Chelmsford Wall as well as finding some great pieces in Shoreditch on my way to work.
I was attracted by The Bright Lights Of London Town too – now it’s getting darker just as I leave work, it gave me the opportunity to make some attractive dusk shots during the Blue Hour.
I also went on another evening street photography walk in Hoxton with my nocturnal friend from GNPC. It’s always good to see a bit of night life!
Finally, this month saw the RPS adjudicate on my Fellowship application. Sadly it was a no, but it has given me the opportunity to prepare my 2000 Days of the Seeing Eye project, which I hope to have an exhibition with in the future. Watch this space!
September has turned out to be a very busy month! I still spent much of it working up in London but I still managed a few interesting events and walkabouts. One of my first outings of the month was an evening photowalk around Shoreditch for some Street Photography. It was a very fruitful shoot. Here’s one from the evening:
I was back in London a few days later but this time during the daylight. It was another productive outing around Aldwych, Shoreditch and Camden:
On 20th September I took my portfolio down to the Royal Photographic Society HQ in preparation for my forthcoming FRPS distinction assessment in October. Then I had a lovely potter around Bath with my camera before getting the train home again.
Another four 50@50 pictures were captured, with #34, #35 and #36 found during London walkabouts, while #37 was one I spotted at Bletchley Park during this year’s Over The Air conference. I even did a presentation at OTA on my Face Down Tuesday images, which went down very well.
I managed just one more FDT this month though, the Foggy Barbican Edition.
There were also plenty of opportunities for Mono images this month, including Fleeting Shadows, Stainless Struts, Diamonds And Steel, Box Sections, Number 69, The Happy Bear, Leonard Street Shadows, George Street Steps and The Library Window.
I’ve had a great couple of months working in London during August and September, finding many interesting shots on The Walk To Work – here are a couple of examples:
