Day #362

Day #362Title: Plotting A Route
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The sun we were promised in the forecast never materialised today. A shame, but I was busy with various jobs at home. Tomorrow, my fellow geocaching addict friend Alistair is coming over, so I spent a little time this afternoon plotting some caches we can visit. Let’s hope the sun comes out for us!

Day #330

Day #330Title: Carpe Diem
Location: Danbury
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I tooka quick trip over to Little Baddow and Danbury at lunchtime for some pictures. There were quite a few good ones to choose from, but this one struck a chord for the sentiment, as much as the fantastic lichen texture and glancing sunlight, which I found in the churchyard at Danbury. “Sieze The Day” is a good motto, and one thing I’ve learned from doing this project is just that: if you can, sieze the opportunity to take a picture whenever you are able, as it’s often these chance occurrences that produce some of the most memorable images. There are only 36 days left in total now. That’s just one roll of film, for those of you who remember celluloid!

Day #318

Day #318Title: Dead Ends
Location: Billericay
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I had to run a couple of errands in Billericay today, and came across this road sign, which rather amused me. It was just how I felt after a frustrating day yesterday – sometimes you know that going backwards is the only way forwards, and even that looks a little prickly! Let’s hope today is an improvement.

Day #298

Day #298Title: Real Life Meets Second Life
Location: The Magic Circle & Second Life
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Today, I attended the London hub of the world’s first global web conference, <head>. It was a lot of fun, especially as it was being held at the Magic Circle HQ in Euston. Not only were various folks there in person, but there were live linkups with other hubs around the globe, as well as in Second Life. The conference continues, largely online, over the weekend. Horray for broadband!

Day #294

Day #294Title: These Boots…
Location: At home
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I’ve been doing quite a bit of walking recently (not far by some standards, but I get about). And since this week’s 366 Theme is Boots, I thought I would present you with my walking boots. Didn’t have the opportunity to use them today though – I was busy at home at it was grey and grim outside 🙁

Day #266

Day #266Title: Hinge & Bracket
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I had two meetings in Chelmsford today, and I arrived quite early for the first one. So I took a brief walk along the River Can to where it meets the Chelmer by the Essex Record Office. Next to the footbridge, I found a storage unit which had metal doors, and I quite liked the texture of the metalwork and hinges. After my meetings, the day deteriorated weather-wise, so I didn’t get anything better. But I did spend an enjoyable evening in a local pub with fellow 366-er touchingthelight, who was in the area on business. Good to catch up again!
