Day #693 Title: 2-4-6   8  Motorway
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: Another day of head down and get on with it, with little chance to get out and about for pictures. But I rediscovered this colourful little folding ruler in a cupboard I was turning out the other day, and I’m a bit of a sucker for funky stationery. It also rather suits this week’s 52Themes2009 subject Music (Interpret A Song). So here you have it, “2 4 6 8 Motorway” by the Tom Robinson Band.

Day #692 Title: Shrink Wrapped
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I have just taken delivery of 10 copies of my Essex Landscapes book, all of which have been sold already. So I have been sorting out whose is which, ready for delivering to the folks who have bought them. I also have orders for another 6, so am about to set off another print run of 10, giving me a few spares. I’m pretty pleased with the sales to date, especially since my 2008 Photo A Day book has only sold one copy so far!

Day #690

Day #690 Title: Mono Textures
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Spent the day with a friend and we helped each other sort out various tech problems we were having. Very productive but tiring. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to go out at sunset (what we saw from the window was nice!) and so this is all I managed to take. By the time she went home, my eyes were beginning to see things a little bit funny, so I played about with this to make it more exciting.

Day #689

Day #689 Title: Back At The Beeb
Location: White City, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had a busy day of meetings in London today. One of which was lunch with some of my old Engineering buddies Malcolm, Chung and Paul from the BBC. It’s quite a while since I last set foot in Telly Centre, and it was good to see them and catch up with all their news. Hopefully it won’t be as long before we get together again. Another successful 40@40 achieved.

Day #687

Day #687 Title: Afternoon Light
Location: Little Leighs
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: After my lunchtime meeting near Great Leighs, I noticed some wonderful afternoon light and could not resist a quick potter around the lovely church at Little Leighs on my way home. I do like Autumn when we get light like this – so much better than the wet and windy we have had recently.
