Day #2178

Day #2178Title: The Limo
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: I had to take my “limo” into the garage for its MOT and annual service today. Walking home on the way back from dropping it off, I passed this real stretch limo parked in a residential street close to home. I’ve seen it a few times before, so I assume the chauffeur lives around here somewhere. The raindrops on the tinted windows added some extra texture. Sadly my own “limo” cost quite a few quid to repair, but at least I’ve got it back in good shape now for future winter journeys.

Location: Silk Street, London

Notes: I wanted to emphasise the blackness of the new tarmac along Silk Street with this one. The two people crossing timed it just right.

Day #2052Title: Benchmark
Location: Upper Frobisher Crescent, Barbican Centre, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I spotted this bench and its shadow as I walked to work via the Barbican Centre this morning. Always a sucker for some strong shadows, I thought it would make an excellent image for Treasure Hunt Theme #69 – Benches.

Day #2044

Day #2044Title: The Goldsmiths
Location: Barbican, London
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I walked to work through the Barbican Centre this morning and took one of my usual routes. But I looked around a bit more than usual and spotted this frieze near the entrance on Fann Street. There was another plaque nearby which provided some history:

This frieze was removed from numbers 53 and 54 Barbican when it was demolished in 1962 and re-erected by the Corporation of London in 1975. Numbers 53 and 54 Barbican were the premises of W Bryer & Sons Gold Refiners and Assayers whose trade is depicted in the frieze. The building was one of the few who which survived when the area was largely destroyed by incendiary bombs in December 1940.
