Day #2099Title: Something’s Escaping From Number 53
Location: Great Baddow, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: Alistair and I went for a long geocaching ramble around Galleywood and Great Baddow this afternoon. We may also have stopped off at a couple of pubs to sample their wares. We passed the door of this Tattoo Parlour in Great Baddow on our return leg of the walk. I thought the scary skeleton escaping through the door was rather eye-catching.

Day #2096Title: Mosaic Colour
Location: Fortune Street Park, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: Fortune Street Park is on a regular route for my journey from Liverpool Street to Clerkenwell. There are some fun, colourful community mosaics on one wall – this is just a little detail from part of it.

Day #2039

Day #2039Title: Norfolk Ice Cream
Location: Sheringham, Norfolk
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: It was rather grey today but I headed to Sheringham for breakfast and a walk. This mural is part of a longer display of art along the sea wall to the east side of the town. The weather only got worse, and I got very wet eventually, so I didn’t make any better images later in the day. By mid-afternoon, I decided to make my way home rather than stay on any longer. After a week away, it was good to get back!

Day #2034

Day #2034Title: Ride The Wave
Location: Blackpool, Lancashire
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I finally arrived in Blackpool this afternoon and met up with Alistair before we headed off to the pre-BarCampBlackpool nosh in the centre of town. The venue was near this sculpture, The Wave, which provided a striking image for the day. The Cybermen enjoyed their day at the seaside too. And I found some interesting North Shore Shadows for my mono shot today.

Day #1934

Day #1934Title: Chalk It Up
Location: Great Portland Street, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: A homeless man regularly camps outside the entrance to one of the supermarkets along Great Portland Street, chalking quirky designs on the pavement. He’s not there first thing in the morning, so today all I saw was his work from the day before.

Day #1916Title: The Presenters’ Tree
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: During another quick wander around TVC today, I found the mural of Blue Peter Presenters next to the old site of the Blue Peter garden.

Day #1907

Day #1907Title: Fault Line
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: There’s a wall at the edge of the car park near the Essex Records Office which has been derelict for some time. It’s a favourite of graffiti artists who love to paint and overpaint their designs on it. The art changes each time I visit. I’m drawn to colour and details, and often make images from small sections of the bigger pictures. I liked the fault line running through this – the boundary between two of the concrete slabs which make up the wall. I thought it would make an excellent image for Treasure Hunt Theme #42 – Graffiti.
