Day #704

Day #704 Title: I See Stars
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I went to the Essex Records Office this morning for a networking event run by Essex County Council. It’s an attractive, shiny modern building, but I must admit the grafitti in the car park next door caught my eye as well. This was the best of the closeups I found.

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 #684

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 #627

Day #627 Title: Flying Shoes
Location: Edible, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: There’s a lovely little café in Chelmsford where I often have business meetings. I went to one this morning to find that the upper floor of the place is being used as a display venue for various arts and crafts as part of the Chelmsford Arts Trail. These were rather posh shoes, appearing to be suspended in mid-air, which I thought were quite fun. Don’t worry, I won’t be buying a pair – they start at 300 quid!

Day #614

Day #614 Title: Stand Right Here
Location: Brighton
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was BarCampBrighton4 this weekend, and the venue was in the old Library in Church Street, which is currently semi-derelict. It’s being used as an art gallery and has all sorts of weird and wonderful “features” around the place. I found just the spot to stand in wearing my pink boots.
