Day #1858 Title: Brolly Struts
Location: Great Notley
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: We had an informal evening at photo club today, with several groups doing different things. One lot had the portable studio equipment set up – I found this pattern in the underside of one of their white reflective brollies.

Day #1857 Title: Sun Trap
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: After two days indoors doing my accounts and tax, I finally got out of the house today. I was pleased to see the sunshine this morning, during a quick trip into town for supplies. The light was behind me, bouncing off a window on the building opposite and casting attractive shadows on the lumpy bumpy path by the river Can.

Day #1854 Title: Discontinuity
Location: Chelmer Park
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Another sunny day, despite a dreafully unpromising start. When the rain stopped I took a walk to Chelmer Park to make some pictures for the Toybox 52 Weeks challenge and saw this striking shadow of some railings near the big slide.

Day #1853 Title: Curvature III
Location: Oaklands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I needed some shopping from the town today and as it was sunny, I decided to walk. I’m glad I did – there were queues for the car parks everywhere! So I was feeling rather smug about getting some fresh air, exercise and pictures while all the other lemmings were sat waiting in their metal boxes. My route back went through Oaklands Park, home of Chelmsford Museum, where I rather took a liking to the sunshine playing on the unnecessary but  beautiful Victorian ornamentation on Colonel Crompton’s lamp post. I’ve made a picture from it before (on Day #1665). I love the Victorians’ penchant for over-the-top decoration of purely functional things – just because they could.
