Day #305

Posted by Caz on Friday, 31st October 2008

Day #305Title: It’s Halloweeeeeen!
Location: Central Line under London
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I went to London this evening with a group of geek friends, to see Avenue Q at the Noel Coward Theatre. We had a great evening, and being Hallowe’en, there were lots of odd characters to be seen out and about. Alistair was one of the not-so-odd!

Day #304

Day #304Title: Leaden Skies
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Another busy day at home. During the afternoon, the skies became rather menacing, and I was able to dash outside for a quick shot of the neighbours’ tree before the heavens opened.

Day #303Title: Sunny Stock
Location: Stock, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: A lovely day to be out and about. I made sure I had the camera on board, and managed a few minutes to take an image in Stock as I was passing through to a meeting in Billericay.

Day #302Title: Melting Frost
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: After yesterday’s near miss, I made sure I took something first thing today! Lucky I did, because although the weather was great for most of the time during daylight hours, I was very busy at home, and had to wait in for a Special Delivery parcel which never came! So much for being “guaranteed by 1pm”. But don’t get me started on ranting about the Royal Mail… This was a shot of some early morning frost melting from the top of my car as the sun crept across the roof.

Day #301

Day #301Title: The Heart Of A Lily
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I nearly missed taking a shot today! Made it by about 20 minutes, after having had a very busy day and then getting home just after 11pm to realise I’d still not taken anything. The lovely  bouquet I got for judging the other day was looking a little bit sad, but I managed to home in on one lily and take a few macro shots of its central form. Then I remembered I’d not changed my camera back to GMT, so it nearly got recorded as being taken on 28th after all!

Day #299

Day #299Title: Dusk On Writtle Green
Location: Writtle, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Despite the patchy weather, I managed to get out for a bit of fresh air this afternoon. But by the time I was heading home, dusk was beginning to settle in. This was taken as the light faded in Writtle.
