Day #144

Day #144Title: Project 366 Breeds Success!
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: My Camera Club‘s season finished this evening with the annual Print Of the Year competition. During the regular season, we have six competitions and any print which has been placed 1st-4th in any of these previous competitions is eligible to enter Print Of The Year. All the prints are put out on display and the club members are asked to judge the pictures via a ballot – the one with the most points wins Mono Print, Colour Print or Slide Of The Year. Since I joined in 1992, I’ve won the Jack Oswell Memorial Trophy for Mono Print of the Year three times – 1994, 2006 and tonight! The print was a black and white version of Day #71, called “Boredom”, and was previously placed 3rd in a set subject competition “Emotions”. So if I hadn’t been taking a photo a day for 366, I wouldn’t have been in Thaxted to see the cat and get this picture!

Day #71

Day #71Title: Open Wide
Location: Thaxted, essex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a meeting in Saffron Waldon this morning, and stopped off in Thaxted on the way home for a few pictures. Initially the light was dull and overcast, but once I’d been in the church and wandered around for a bit, the sun came out. I also got some great shots of the Tudor Guildhall and Thaxted Windmill. But this was my shot of the day for catching the cat’s spontaneous yawn as I passed. It was sitting in a window along with a notice in French, proclaiming something along the lines of "Extremely malicious cat and little nourished"!
