Day #1369 Title: Fancy Ceiling
Location: Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was my first visit to the 2-day Over The Air conference/hack event today, and the first time it has been held at Bletchley Park. Sessions were held in the main house, and this a view of the Ballroom ceiling. All rather impressive. It was a great venue for the event, with geeks camping on the lawn and a massive marquee for everyone to meet in.

Day #1368 Title: Many Minds One Heart
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Another warm sunny day – not quite what is usual for the end of September! I went into town to see some friends for coffee and cake and thought the coat of arms looked rather nice in front of the blue sky. Here is some more info on the meaning. I’m not too sure what the two bunches of grapes are doing hanging from the ironwork though!

Day #1367 Title: Peaceful Moorings – September
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was a very sunny day for the most part, but when I went to go out, the weather had turned rather misty. Still, a different look for my scenic location in September – the leave are beginning to turn. Treasure Hunt Theme #09 – Scenic Location – September.

Day #1365 Title: Dreich
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was quite nice earlier in the day, when I didn’t have much time for photography. By the time I thought about taking a shot, it had turned wet and miserable outside…

Day #1364 Title: Miss Scarlet
Location: London International Tattoo Convention
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 70-200 EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I spent the afternoon at the London International Tattoo Convention at Tobacco Docks today, with a friend from the Chelmsford Flickr Photowalk group. We decided it would be something a little different for us to visit, since neither of us are particularly comfortable shooting people. We were both a bit apprehensive, but needn’t have worried – there were plenty of willing subjects, most of whom were more than happy to pose for a picture. This striking lady’s hair caught my attention and she obliged when I asked if I could take her portrait. I thought it would be a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #26 – Hair.

Day #1363 Title: A Terrier Named Fulham
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This is a little Hornby OO gauge A1X Terrier 0-6-0T called Fulham, in the livery of the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #57 – Crafts & Hobbies.
