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.

Day #2141Title: Jetty Moorings
Location: Mersea Island, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100-400mm EF f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM
Notes: There was some beautiful light today at Mersea Island. Although it was cold there was wall to wall blue sky for much of the day. These little boats were moored up on the jetty in the perfect place to catch the sun.

Day #2133Title: Rockets Reflected
Location: Lake Meadows, Billericay
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: A cold and windy evening out today, at the firework display in Billericay with a friend from the Chelmsford Flickr group. We got a grand spot across the water from the crowd (having pulled some strings with the organisers). This meant there was plenty of opportunity for reflections of the fireworks too. So today you get rockets the right way up and upside down. Another image for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Upside Down. See more pictures from the evening.

Day #2000

Day #2000Title: D2K Is Here!
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: It had an inauspicious (and quite boring) start on 1st January 2008 – Day #1. I would have never guessed that it would carry on for so long. On Day #366 I should have stopped. By Day #500 I was beginning to get the hang of things… I wanted Day #1000 to be a great photographic celebration but the weather conspired against me! (It just goes to show you can’t force these things). The time to Day #1500 literally flew by. I decided to re-name this out-sized 365 to Project Infinity. And so here we are today – D2K of consecutive picture-making! I’ve never missed a day (although it’s been a close call on occasions). And I’ve never cheated with the clock. Even if I haven’t posted an image on the day it was taken, they have all been made on the correct day of the calendar. You could argue I’m obsessive about it, I won’t deny it! But I’ve also learned an awful lot, which I will write about later. Your next question will be “Am I going to carry on tomorrow?” – You’ll have to stick around to find out! And now, I’m going to go and eat those cupcakes!

Day #1932

Day #1932Title: Festival Pier
Location: Embankment, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I met up with a friend after work for some night photography around the City. We walked from the Houses of Parliament along the South Bank to Hungerford Bridge and to the Embankment for various shots. I loved the way the long exposure has blurred the water

Day #1877

Day #1877Title: Ulting Sunset
Location: Ulting, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I caught a colourful sunset at Ulting Chuch after a muddy squelch around the canal towpath this afternoon. And thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #34 – Sunrise/Sunset – especially since you know how unlikely I am to catch a sunrise this year!

Day #1863 Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – February
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: A sunny day enticed me back to my scenic location today. After all, there might not be any more sunny days in February – who knows?!
