Day #2065

Day #2065Title: Long Silent
Location: RAF Rivenhall, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I went on a 10-mile circular geocaching walk with Alistair today, from Coggeshall to the now-disused RAF Rivenhall airfield and back. We had a poke around in some of the old crumbling Nissen huts, which have been much-photographed by many folks before me. But I thought my choice of the fisheye lens added a touch of originality. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #61 – An Abandoned Building.

Day #1947Title: The Scenic Artists’ Workshop
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: We found the abandoned Scenic Artists’ Workshop today, not used for many a year. The light floods in from huge skylights above; the metal frames on each side wall would have had enormous canvases stretched over them for painting backdrops for the studios. Everywhere is spattered with flecks of paint from long ago. I loved how the drawer still contains a couple of old paint rollers too. I thought this would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Abandoned.
