Day #1787

Day #1787 Title: Fulham Sunset
Location: Fulham Palace Road, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I walked from Hammersmith to Fulham this evening to get my iPhone repaired at iFixPhone. They offer a great while-you-wait service. On the way I noticed a spectacular sunset playing itself out to the west, and made this quick image as a jet passed by overhead, on its way to Heathrow.

Day #1739 Title: A Blowy Day At The Seaside
Location: Southend
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm f/1.7
Notes: We fancied a trip to the seaside today, so headed to Southend. It was quite sunny but also very windy, and at one point we had to take refuge in a seafront café for tea, toasted teacakes, and ear-thawing. We chickened out of walking the full length of the pier (1.25 miles each way) and instead opted for the rickety train ride instead. Here you can see a train just departing the seashore station on its trundle towards the pier head.

Day #1731

Day #1731 Title: Fuji-san Beckons
Location: In the air above Japan
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: The long trek home started with a 5:45am alarm this morning, but it all went smoothly and I was able to get the train to the airport and onto the plane without any hassles. Throughout my trip, whenever possible, I’ve been trying to catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji (or Fuji-san as she is known in Japan). Until now, she’s always been elusive, hiding behind the clouds without a hope of seeing anything. So imagine my surprise when there she was, head poking up above the fluffy white, visible over the wing a few minutes after takeoff. She seems to be beckoning me to return one day and see her up close. I will! I will! Read more about my stay.

Day #1701 Title: Pylon Symmetry
Location: St Lawrence
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: Another geocaching trip with Alistair today – this time on the Dengie Peninsula. I liked the pattern formed by the struts of this pylon, under which we found one cache. The clouds helped to give it some interest too.

Day #1695 Title: Face Down August (Parliamentary Edition)
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I had great fun this evening meeting up for the first time with Chantal, a Dutch friend on Flickr, and admin for the crazy Face Down Tuesday group. She is in London for a few days with work, so we took the opportunity to get together for some daft Tuesday planking shots. We did quite a few which you may see over the coming weeks – some together, some separately, at various London landmarks. This is me attempting to shake Wenlock‘s hand on the south bank at Westminster. Thanks Chantal for your great company and many laughs together! This is my shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #08 – Once A Month – August.
