Day #1060Title: Hole In The Wall
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I took a long walk around Chelmsford yesterday on the hunt for Blue Plaques. On my way, I passed this rather intriguing display set in the garden wall of a house. There are several different sculptures along the wall, but I liked this one best. Good to see a householder with a sense of fun! Even Dai took a shine to the little blue van at the top right.

Day #1052Title: Bows
Location: Southwick
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I drove down to West Sussex today as I was booked to judge a print competition at Steyning Camera Club this evening, on the recommendation of fellow Photo-A-Day veteran Ken Scott. Arriving during the afternoon, I went for a potter along the canal at nearby Southwick and found the bows of this boat with its peeling paint. After an excellent dinner in Shoreham with the club’s programme secretary Malcolm Bull, the evening itself went well and I got some very positive feedback from the club members, whose work I greatly enjoyed seeing.

Day #1043Title: Ghostly Cyclists On Sidney Street
Location: Cambridge
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I left Leeds in torrential rain this morning, and was in Cambridge in time for an early afternoon meeting. That finished around 5:30pm and I remembered that it was Cambridge Geek Night, so I decided to stay on in the city and attend. This was taken on the walk back to the car park after the event when, thankfully, it had actually stopped raining for a bit!

Day #1035Title: Pulteney Weir
Location: Queens Square, Bath
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: We enjoyed a nice Sunday morning walk whilst at BathCamp today, it blew the cobwebs away and was a chance to get out before it rained. This is a view of Pulteney Weir from Pierrepont Street. I loved the golden autumn colours.

Day #1004 Title: London Hill – September
Location: Galleywood
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Left it a bit late to do my September shot from London Hill, but I do have the excuse that I was away in Scotland for half the month. Managed to bag a shot this morning in the nick of time – and the sun even shone! Another one for Treasure Hunt Theme #9 – Scenic Location – September.

Day #999 Title: Quayside Regeneration
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I went to visit Mum and Dad for lunch today, and stopped off at Wivenhoe Quay on the way, as the sun was out. I’m glad I did, it disappeared soon after lunch, not to be seen again for the day! This is on the site of the old Cook’s Shipyard to the east of the town. New flats are springing up where the boat sheds used to be. But I’m glad there is still room for some of the fishing boats which used to fill the place in years gone by.

Day #991 Title: Shifty Shadows
Location: Hoe Mill Lock, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We went for a walk along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation this evening, and found the shadows of two shady characters lurking on the side of a boat.
