Day #685

Day #685 Title: Wivenhoe Quay
Location: Fingringhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Having spent yesterday in Colchester, I stayed overnight with my parents in Wivenhoe and spent most of today with Mum whilst Dad was out playing the organ for various church services. The three of us also enjoyed a pleasant lunch out. It was supposed to rain, but Mum & I took advantage of the good weather and had a drive and little walk. This is one of my favourite views of Wivenhoe, taken from across the River Colne at Fingringhoe. A lovely spot to catch the warm evening light illuminating the quayside opposite. A nice way to spend another 40@40 day.

Day #684 Title: Coat Of Arms
Location: Colchester
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I spent a lovely afternoon and evening with old school friend Karon, pottering about in Colchester where we both grew up. I haven’t been back for quite a while. We had a nice lunch and good old natter, before going back to her house to cook a tasty pasta bolognaise. It was good to see her family again too – and another enjoyable 40@40 day.

Day #681 Title: Centre Of Attention
Location: Westfield, Shepherds Bush
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I met my former team leader Veronica today, as another 40@40 event. We have both worked in Shepherds Bush for years, and while I was around there were only a few paltry shops to choose from for getting anything to eat. Since I left the BBC/Siemens, they have built Westfield, the biggest shopping centre in Europe, right by Television Centre.  So we had plenty of options of what to eat for lunch!
