Day #1154Title: Seeing Red
Location: On the M3, stuck
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Although I enjoyed day two of BarCamp Bournemouth3, I didn’t enjoy the drive home at all. I left Bournemouth at 4pm with the SatNav originally predicting my arrival time at home as 6.30pm (a tad optimistic). However, the M3 had other ideas. Two accidents, hideous traffic jams and plenty of idiot drivers meant I finally got home just after 9pm. That’s 5 hours to drive 150 miles. Serves me right for making a journey on the Sunday at the end of half term week, I suppose 🙁

Day #1153Title: Bournemouth Blue
Location: BarCamp Bournemouth
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: A mixed bag of weather today in Bournemouth – sunshine and showers. I was mainly inside at BarCamp Bournemouth3, so it didn’t matter too much. But I crept outside for a few minutes while the sun was shining to take this shot of the main entrance to Bournemouth University building where the event was held. I thought it made a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #44 – Blue.

Day #1152

Day #1152Title: Handsome Chap
Location: Bournemouth
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I was planning some evening shots of Bournemouth Pier for today’s image, but soon after arriving my EOS 7D decided to pack up. It keeps showing Error 30 and not taking any pictures. Thankfully still under warranty, I’ll have to take it for repair when I get home next week. So in the meantime, I thought I would give you a close up study of Leo, Dai’s friend, who doesn’t often get to hog the limelight (he’s much more likely to be upstaged by the small purple one). Another shot in my weekly From The Toybox series, and also suitable for Treasure Hunt Theme #16 – Furry Friends!

Day #1150

Day #1150Title: Water, Water, Everywhere
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: Wall to wall water today, mainly falling from the sky. This incessant rain is getting boring… So, fed up with grey, I thought I would try to inject a bit of colour into things – although still on the water theme. Not entirely happy with the results, but this was the best I could manage with so little inspiration.

Day #1149

Day #1149Title: Shampoo & Shadows
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: A dull grey day weatherwise, which I spent driving home from Newcastle. If you can’t get sunlight, then you have to make your own – this was a small bottle of hotel shampoo I found whilst sorting out my wash bag when I got back.
