Day #310

Day #310Title: Up The Garden Path
Location: Moulsham Mill, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Found myself at Moulsham Mill again this evening, this time to judge a photo competition for Chelmsford Camera Club. And I realised I hadn’t yet got a picture by the end of the evening. But one thing I’ve learned over the last 310 days is not to panic – picture opportunities will present themselves. Just as I was leaving, I noticed this path through an ornamental garden, and rather liked the light filtering through the trees, even though it was pretty dark.

Day #280

Day #280Title: Swing Into Autumn
Location: Harlow Common
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I was visitng a client in Harlow today, and was invited to wander round their magnificent garden. Ths long shadows, golden leaves and swing caught my eye to make a nice picture.

Day #183

Day #183Title: Half Full Or Half Empty?
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is “a phrase or saying” – so here we have, The Glass Is Half Full/Half Empty. At the moment, I would have to say it’s half empty. I’ve been having a bad week generally, and just when you think it can’t get any worse… This evening, shortly after I’d taken this, I managed to trip over in the garden. So now I have two sore knees, a slightly fat lip, scratched glasses and a bruised ego. Wonderful. On a slightly more positive note, at least we’ve made it to Half Way today – day 183/366. Congrats to all who have come this far too.

Day #146

Day #146Title: Singin’ In The Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is Song Titles, so I thought I would take advantage of the beautiful Bank Holiday weather to present you with a one-off, exclusive performance of “Singin’ In The Rain”. It was hammering down at the time – I hope you all appreciate how I suffer for my art! I haven’t attempted any self-portraits before, so please be kind to me…
