Day #603 Title: Relaxing By The Pool
Location: Harlow Common
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I was invited to a business networking lunch at the home of a friend today. It was a very relaxed atmosphere as we sat by the pool, ate a lovely buffet lunch and found out more about each others’ businesses. I seem to be turning into a Lady Who Lunches. Ah well…

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!

Day #564 Title: Under Growth
Location: Wickham Bishops
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This is a lovely quiet spot by the River Blackwater near Wickham Bishops, showing the old wooden railway viaduct which formed part of the now defunct Witham to Maldon branch line. The undergrowth is beginning to take over – I liked the different greens and the recession of the viaduct planks.

Day #528

Day #528Title: Built With Stripes
Location: ARU, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I went to one of my regular monthly business networking lunches at the Anglia Ruskin University in the centre of town today. And I knew that this week’s 52Themes2009 was Architecture, and I’d not really got anything decent so far, so I took the opportunity to take some images of this striking glass-clad building while the sun was out. It is part of the Ashcroft International Business School. The reflective metallic stripes on the glass are the same stuff which attracted my attention on Day #443 at the Sally Army.

Day #502

Day #502Title: Centurion Ceiling
Location: Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I spent the day at BarCampNorthEast2, which was held in some rooms at the Centurion Bar by the railway station. I took a few images during the sessions, but this was the best one which was in the bar itself – the upper walls and ceiling were covered in ornate ceramic tiles with interesting lighting effects.
