Day #1804 Title: Winter Outline
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 /45-200mm f/4-5.6 IOS
Notes: A simple image at a familiar location today. I popped out for some grocery shopping just as the sunset was fading, so made a quick detour to Galleywood Common to photograph this twisty old tree. It was last featured way back on Day #339, almost exactly 4 years ago.

Day #1783

Day #1783 Title: A Bleak Outlook
Location: Broadstairs, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mmEF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  This morning I headed down to Margate to visit my friend Julian who’s just moved there. We enjoyed a sociable but wet afternoon in a local café with some other friends before munching a fish and chip supper. This evening we decided to go and see the latest Bond film, Skyfall, at the tiny local cinema in Broadstairs. This view was made as the light was fading into the deep blue dusk. We were looking out across the bay towards Bleak House, made famous by the Dickens novel.

Day #1724

Day #1724 Title: Electric Town
Location: Akihabara, Tokyo, Japan
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Another cloudy day today meant I wasn’t running around taking pictures at tourist hotspots. Instead I took the train the Shibuya to visit NHK (Japan’s equivalent of the BBC – am I on a busman’s holiday?). I enjoyed their Studio Park tour and ate a hearty lunch in their café. I might also have bought a few souvenirs from the home of Domo. Later in the day, I explored the shopping at Tokyo station’s subterranean mall, getting horribly lost in the process, and then on to Akihabara. Affectionately known as Electric Town, this  is the district of Tokyo famous for its high-tech electronics shops. Never fear, my wallet stayed in my bag this time, but it was an interesting experience! Read more about my stay.

Day #1719

Day #1719 Title: High Rise Night Life
Location: Yokohama, Japan
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We had our last ride on the Shinkansen this morning, travelling from Kyoto to Yokohama, Japan’s second largest city. It’s almost a suburb of Tokyo, being a few miles down the coast. It’s also the first city where Westerners were allowed to settle 150 years ago, and has a very cosmopolitan feel. After a trip up the Landmark Tower to look out over the metropolis, I went with friends Chris and Vicky on Cosmo Clock 21 (a huge ferris wheel)  in the harbour amusement park. This was the view just as the sun was setting and the twinkly lights were coming on, dominated by Landmark Tower dwarfing fairground beneath. Then we headed to Chinatown for our last group meal together, a very sociable way to end our tour. Read more about my stay.

Day #1695

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.

Day #1692 Title: Zig Zags On The Road
Location: Ingatestone High Street
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Far too hot and sticky for me today, I spent most of it skulking around indoors where it was slightly cooler. I popped out this evening and found this zigzags on the road in Ingatestone – perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #69 – Zigzags.
