Day #911 Title: Jasmine Flowers
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I make no apology that I seem to be going through a bit of a flower/macro phase at the moment. I’m really enjoying using the 60mm macro lens, and this time of year there is plenty of naturally beautiful things at which to point it! This is one of the little fragrant Jasmine flowers which cover the arch over my back gate. They have just started to bloom since the weekend. The smell is wonderful, and reminds me that Summer is here at last! A great addition for the Treasure Hunt Theme 44 – Things I Love Or Hate.

Day #910 Title: London Hill – June
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I realised in a bit of a panic that I hadn’t taken June’s shot of London Hill. So I popped out this evening to rectify the situation. Thought I would give it a bit of Orton, just to be different. I remembered how vicious the nettles are, so dressed appropriately this time!

Day #908 Title: Lavender And Friend
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I’m very tired after spending most of the day in the garden. Sadly not relaxing, but mowing, pruning and general tidying. This is a shot of the Lavender in my front garden, complete with a tiny little spider hiding at the bottom of the frame.

Day #907

Day #907 Title: Lesser Stitchwort
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: After a long day in front of the computer, I took a quick walk on Galleywood Common this evening. I found all sorts of little flowers which are easily missed unless you look hard. I’ve photographed Greater Stitchwort on Day #862, but this little fellow, about 10mm across, is the Lesser variety. I had to get down on hands and knees to get close enough for this shot.

Day #906 Title: Say Cheese!
Location: Baroosh, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Today we had the first meeting of a new networking group I’ve set up for Essex Web Developers. We’re all freelancers or small business owners and it was great to get together for networking coffee and cake. It was an excellent turnout with 10 people coming along from all parts of the county and beyond. Thanks for attending, and hope to see you all next month!
