Day #1274 Title: Jewelled Orb
Location: The Square Pig, Holborn
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: This evening I went to the London Webstandards event at The Square Pig. Downstairs in the basement, where the meeting was held, there were some funky lamp shades. I liked the shadows cast on the walls. I thought this would make a good find for Treasure Hunt #46 – All That Glitters.

Day #1273

Day #1273 Title: Peaceful Moorings – June
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A scorcher of a day, for a change – perhaps Flaming June has arrived? Better late than never! After nearly frying at a very enjoyable geocaching event, I realised today would be my last opportunity to photograph my scenic location for June as I’ll be too busy for the rest of the month. So I took a trip to Sandford Mill on the way home. The reeds have grown and the sky is blue – a bit of a change from the May version. Another shot done for Treasure Hunt Theme #06 – Scenic Location – June.

Day #1272

Day #1272 Title: Encapsulated
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 Speedlite, camera left with stofen diffuser @ 1/8; 1 x YN560 Speedlite, behind shooting through opaque plastic and a blue filter @ 1/32
Notes: I was experimenting with some bubble macro shots today. I know a good Merlot shouldn’t really have bubbles,  but it looked so pretty with them blown at the rim of the glass. It was also rather nice to drink after I’d finished playing with it! More on the setup here.

Day #1271

Day #1271 Title: Diffraction Distraction
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: Despite a sunny start, the clouds gathered and by early evening there was persistent heavy rain again. It didn’t dampen our spirits when I went to the pub with friends after work, but it did make for a bit of a soggy journey home. Once I got back to the station car park, I noticed the patterns on the wet ground caused by the fence and platform lighting. Not quite Flaming June – more like Flaming Weather!
