Day #693

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 #664 Title: Spooning
Location: South Bank, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This morning, taking a short break from BarCampLondon7 at IBM, Alistair & I decided to go on a quick photowalk along the South Bank. We passed some interesting design shops near the Oxo Tower, and this set of nested spoons caught my eye in one of the windows.

Day #601

Day #601 Title: Indecision
Location: Writtle, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was time for another Chelmsford Flickr walk today, and this time it was just myself and Rodney who turned up to finish off the last section of the Cenetenary Circle. Actually, we are the only two who have walked the full route. It wasn’t the most interesting of lanscapes – more fields but this time mostly already harvested – but it felt good to have finished it off after 5 months! This image was one I spotted near the beginning of the trek near the River Can at Writtle. I’ll treat today as another 40@40 event, even though it’s happened over such a long period of time, and with others coming with us along the way.

Day #598

Day #598 Title: Walking In My Mind
Location: South Bank, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent a great afternoon wandering the South Bank with my friend Ann, swapping freelance and photography tips, as another of my 40@40 events. Despite the unpromising weather initially, the sun came out for us and this image really struck me because of the contrast in colours against the normally drab concrete around the QEII Hall. The trees were also dressed up in red and white polka dots, which was rather fancy!
