Day #628

Day #628 Title: Prism Vision
Location: City University, Islington
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I spent this afternoon at City University for the second meeting of Standards.Next, which was an excellent set of talks on Cognition & Accessibility on the web. This image caught my eye between sessions – it’s one of those horrible fluorescent lights, but I did like the reflection of someone’s presentation slides in the shiny metal reflectors.

Day #556

Day #556Title: Sputnik
Location: Turnpike Lane, London
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A friend is going on a road trip across the USA very soon and she had a send-off party at her flat this evening. Alistair and I both noticed the rather funky light fittings in her lounge – they reminded me of Russia’s first satellite, Sputnik. We then proceeded to have a friendly argument about which of us would use it as Photo Of The Day! But since we have already photographed the same subject on the same day (with completely different results), we figured it didn’t really matter if we both did. Here is Alistair’s take on it 🙂

Day #422

Day #422Title: Bright Idea
Location: Great Notley
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: I spent the afternoon shopping with friend Anita as part of my 40@40 celebrations. As I was in the area, I decided to stay on for the Great Notley Photography Club still-life evening and we all brought along some bits and pieces to photograph. Someone had taken this Christmas light rope along and I homed in on three of its bulbs for an interesting macro.

Day #396

Day #396Title: Brushed Steel & Highlights
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: A frustrating day for photographs. When there was light, there wasn’t any time. When there was time, there wasn’t any light. It’s just how it goes some days! So I had to resort to another macro shot from around the house, which does, at least, fit with this week’s 52 Themes: Abstract.

Day #379

Day #379Title: Coca Cola – Redux
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: One of my fellow 366 Survivors, touchingthelight, made an interesting comment on yesterday’s photo:

I think the biggest challenge in 2009 … is to find new ways to present those days where there is no time or inspiration.

I wasn’t deliberately aiming at that today, but it worked out rather well. So, what do you get if you cross Day #154 with Day #208? Answer, Day #379! There’s no Photoshop here – it’s just as taken.
