Day #1427 Title: The Meeting
Location: Chelmsford High Street
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed a day out with some friends taking some street photography in Chelmsford today. There was a big do on to celebrate the switch-on of the Christmas Lights. I liked the light on these two ladies, who had just bumped into each other in the street.

Day #1390 Title: Underpass Shadows
Location: Chelmer Village
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: My kettle blew up this morning – disaster! So I had to go to the local retail park to buy another one. On the way, I took a quick walk for some fresh air and photos. These tiles and shadows caught my eye in a nearby underpass.

Day #1312 Title: Out In A Storm
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I needed to get some bits and pieces from the town today, in preparation for my trip up North tomorrow. However, it was bucketing down all morning. I spent a large amount of time dodging between shops under my huge golfing umbrella and dripping my way around once inside. I noticed these shiny seats on the terrace of a café – not much custom out there today! I thought they would make a good find for Treasure Hunt #38 – Out In A Storm.

Day #1216

Day #1216 Title: Marconi Memorabilia
Location: Sandford Mill Pumping Station
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I enjoyed a photoshoot with the Chelmsford Flickr Walk group this morning. We visited Sandford Mill Pumping Station on one of its few public open days a year. We were surprised what we found – all sorts of overflow from the main Chelmsford & Essex Museum at Oaklands Park – including lots of old radio and TV equipment. Very appropriate as today is International Marconi Day. Chelmsford Amateur Radio Society were operating two special wireless stations for the day – one voice and one Morse code. It was geek heaven! I thought this picture would make a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #59 – Gauges, Meters And Indicators.

Day #1175

Day #1175Title: Oaklands House
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Some great evening light on Oaklands House, in Chelmsford. The house was completed in 1867 for wealthy Chelmsford merchant Frederick Wells, and was designed by his brother-in-law Charles Pertwee. It is apparently in the Italianate style very similar to Queen Victoria’s retreat, Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. In 1929, Oaklands House and the surrounding park were purchased by Chelmsford Borough Council and it is now home to the Chelmsford Museum, recently extended with a new wing (out of shot on the right) which opened in 2010.
