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 #648 Title: Seed Head
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I went to help a friend buy a new TV this afternoon, and she very kindly cooked us some dinner afterwards. Before we ate, I had a wander around her garden and found these Agapanthus seed heads. It also fits in rather well with this week’s 52Themes2009 subject, Bokeh.

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 #646 Title: Inukshuk Shadows
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A busy day at home today, and the weather was horrible for most of it. I was casting around looking for something new to photograph when I found a little model of an Inuit Inukshuk on a shelf. I used the office spotlights to illuminate it and cast a shadow on my desk.

Day #645 Title: Soft Green
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Another damp and miserable day. On my way back from a meeting, I happened to spot the same patch of Oxalis which I had taken on Day #577. So I gave it a similar Orton treatment, but it’s still quite a contrast from the previous shot.

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.
