Day #2738Title: Evening Stroll On Alma Street
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes:  After a quick visit to see Mum & Dad this afternoon, I took a trip down to the old part of Wivenhoe to find some pictures. Alma Street in the evening has some great light – I waited for some suitable passers by to come into view – I love the rim lighting around their outlines.

Day #2737Title: The Price Of Summer
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  Another hot day today, and it’s only going to get warmer over the next week. This afternoon I heard the ice cream van so ran out to buy my favourite, a 99. Sadly, due to inflation, it’s gone up to £1.20 these days.

Day #2736Title: Sunset After 9pm
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  It’s been quite a while since I did a sunset at Galleywood Common. This evening’s example was worth the wait, with the sun sinking below the horizon at around 21:10. It wasn’t quite the longest day, but sadly they all start getting shorter again now.

Day #2734Title: Front Door Filter
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  I visit my friend in Ingatestone today and noticed that the etched glass in her front door made a rather curious filter for the view of my car parked outside on the driveway.

Day #2733Title: Monthly Garden Project – June
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  I was hard at work in the garden for much of today, despite the sunny weather. At least there was a cool breeze. Since last month’s progress shot, I’ve disposed of the huge pile of rubble and cobbles which came up from the wonky path; taken up some paving slabs and cleared the left side of the gate; pruned the black elder bush; filled in the hole left by the sleepers being moved in April and prepared some more unwanted pots and my old garden furniture to put on Freecycle. I have also had a landscape gardener visit to discuss laying the new patio. I’m now waiting for his quote. It’s the one thing that I think should be done by a pro, as if the levels are wrong, it would cause all sorts of drainage issues near the house. I would rather pay for it to be done right than bodge it myself! So we’re still in the “rip apart” phase. Hopefully soon we can start the “put together” phase.

Day #2732Title: One-Eyed Jack
Location: Ingatestone Garden Centre
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  This afternoon I finally got rid of the last boot-load of rubble and cobbles I had taken up from my garden at the local tip (sorry, recycling centre). It was hard work, so I treated myself to a pot of tea and slice of cake at the local garden centre nearby. I had the uneasy feeling I was being watched by One-Eyed Jack…
