Day #2511

Day #2511Title: Acer, Granite, Bamboo & Water
Location: Rhino Rock, East Peckham, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: Julian and I took a ride over to Rhino Rock’s Japanese Garden Centre today, so that I could get some ideas for overhauling my back garden. It was raining, but Japanese gardens look fantastic in the rain anyway – I loved the mixture of the water on the smooth granite and the organic shape of the fallen Acer leaf.

Day #2386Title: Spinning A Web
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I noticed this large spider through my kitchen window, spinning a web against the side of the garden shed. I’m no big fan of spiders, so I was glad there was a pane of glass between us! Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #27 – Unloved.

Day #2363Title: Jasmine Rainbow
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: After dismantling my decking today, Alistair helped me build something – the bits for my new light wand had arrived. It’s a 60-RGB LED strip attached to a bamboo stick and powered by a USB battery. Programming of the pretty lights is via an Arduino. Once I had finished the soldering, I was keen to try it out, so went outside and waved it about in the garden for a while. The lights were illuminating the jasmine which grows around the back gate. Also perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #54 – Photographers In Action.

Notes: A quick shot made in my garden this evening, of my Japanese Snow Lantern. I realise I have been a bit daring with the focus!

Notes: Finally got to put my feet up today and do very little. I did manage to wander into the garden to fins something to photograph this afternoon.
