Day #649 Title: Stained Glass Shadows
Location: Greensted, near Ongar
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another great day with friend doing another 40@40 event, this time with Antonia. We had a rather good pub lunch and then went to Greensted Church to take some photos, plus taking a walk across the fields for some fresh air. The weather was kind to us too, so we had a really enjoyable afternoon.

Day #647 Title: Coffee Morning
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was my usual networking group’s coffee meeting this morning, at our favourite independent café in Chelmsford. And then I had another one to one meeting in the same place afterwards. And a couple of hours later, a second – I might as well set up office there! And so I was a bit wired having drunk rather more coffee in one day than I would normally in a week! Still, the light was nice first thing and I thought this shot of a latté summed up my day nicely.

Day #644 Title: The Long Drive  Home
Location: A12, Brentwood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I went into London this evening for a planning meeting for BarCampLondon, this time as a passenger in my friend’s car. It was a horrible evening for going anywhere, with drizzly rain and miserable grey clouds. I have to say that when I see a long queue of traffic in the other direction, I do feel a bit smug sometimes. But on this occasion, I felt rather sorry for the commuters heading home from a day at work. Traffic jams seem to be one of the curses of modern day living – rather conveniently fitting in with this week’s 52Themes2009 subject.

Day #643 Title: Old Father Thames
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another trip to London today, this time to meet photographer friend Paulo for a 40@40. We started off in Holborn and walked down to the river. Originally we wanted to go on a London Duck Tour but they were all booked up, so we took a regular boat from the London Eye to Tower Bridge instead. Finally, we had a potter around the largely deserted City, finishing up at Liverpool Street. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable day, and we were grateful for the good weather too.
