Day #364

Posted by Caz on Monday, 29th December 2008

Day #364Title: Redeye II
Location: Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Spent another chilly but fun day finding geocaches around Beeleigh and Maldon, with a brief, warm respite for lunch in the pub at Heybridge Basin! We ended up at the Thames Barges in Maldon Quay, and this was a bit of a reprise of the location of my May 11th shot, with a twist – of rope, no sun and about 25 degrees colder!

Day #361

Day #361Title: Let’s Play Trains
Location: Colchester SMEE
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a lovely sunny morning, so I headed out to the Colchester Society of Model and Experimental Engineers who had an open day, with my Dad. The have two gagues of track and several great little engines whizzing around. Nice to smell some steam in the air after being cooped up all day yesterday.

Day #352

Day #352Title: Viva Italia!
Location: Linton, Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
I had meetings in Linton and Cambridge today, and it was a lovely blue sky day so I took the camera out with me for five minutes at lunchtime. I found some fairly routine shots of old buildings around Linton, and was resigning myself to using one of those when I happened to see a new little Fiat parked on the street. I first noticed the badge on the front grille, but was stopped in my tracks by this tricoleur on the side – with some great water droplets to add some more texture. The sidelighting was hitting it at just the right angle.

Day #346

Day #346Title: Beat The Rush
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 Theme is Movement, so I nipped out as it was getting dark to photograph the traffic trails on the A12. Not a great shot, but it’s the best I could do with only a few minutes to spare.

Day #338

Day #338Title: Caution: Rudolfs Crossing
Location: White Roding
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I went to a business networking Christmas Lunch at a very posh country hotel today. On the way, I spotted this sign as I was driving down the A1060, and nearly crashed the car laughing. But there was nowhere to stop, and I would have been late for the meeting. However, on the way back, I managed to find somewhere to pull over and walked back to take the picture. Watch out for Rudolfs on the carriageway!

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.
