Day #336

Day #336Title: Catch A Note
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I got home from Sheffield in the afternoon, but didn’t find anything inspiring to photograph on my journey. Then I got busy doing various jobs at home. It wasn’t until around 10pm when I remembered I’d not taken a picture. Mild panic! I found this paperweight and did a quick shot. Sorry it’s not very creative, but I really was too tired to do anything more original.

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 #324

Day #324Title: Fractal Food!
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I’ve been fascinated by Broccoli Romanesco ever since I saw Erasmus T’s picture of it on Flickr ages ago, but haven’t been able to find any in the shops until yesterday. So this morning, I decided to have a go at some still life, lit by natural sunlight from the window. Seems too good to eat, doesn’t it?
