Day #2921Title: Breaking And Entering
Location: Copdock, Suffolk
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This afternoon Alistair and I headed off to Suffolk to find a complicated 5-stage puzzle cache. Each stage was a tricky field puzzle to get the co-ordinates to the next, this is Alistair looking a bit smug at the final hide. We were pleased to have worked it all out before the rain started!

Day #2887Title: Palmer Street Pedestrians
Location: St James’s Park, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This was one of the first images I made as I stepped out of the Tube station at St. James’s Park in London. The guy on the wall was blissfully oblivious to my approach – I waited for the lady to step into the right part of the frame to give a bit of balance. In their own way, they were both engrossed in their own tiny mobile phone worlds.

Day #2876Title: You Blow Me Away
Location: South Bank, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in London today for a session with the Simple Street Photo Meetup group. The arranged for four dancers come along so we could photograph them in various places. This was my favourite from the shoot – enhanced by the windy conditions and catching a moment that you could not have planned. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #70 – Dancing.

Day #2863

Day #2863Title: Wilmington Square
Location: Clerkenwell, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a fantastic day in London today, walking over 10 miles in the pursuit of some street photography. I roamed from St. Paul’s and Aldwych to Islington and back to Liverpool Street. The day started off quite foggy and the atmospherics persisted in some places all day. Mid-afternoon, I found myself in the delightful Wilmington Square, surrounded by imposing Georgian town-houses. It is not far from Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office (once one of the largest in the world). I guess one of the Posties was on his break, as he was sitting relaxing quietly in the middle of the square, reading his paper. As I approached, the mist and sunlight contrived to make some marvellous rays surrounding the bandstand. A perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #43 – Relaxed.

Notes: This is me and a couple of geocaching mates out on the trail around Woodham Ferrers today. What a motley crew! We had a great walk and lots of laughs though. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #56 – Friendship.

Day #2819Title: Speak Up!
Location: Bell Meadow, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes: I had a wander today to see the City Diversions festival in Chelmsford. There were all sorts of street entertainers wandering about. Some were based in Bell Meadow by the river. This guy was part of the Gobbledegook Theatre’s Ear Trumpet show. WHAT’S THAT? CAN YOU SPEAK UP?

Day #2812Title: Geo-Friends
Location: Chappel & Wakes Colne, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a meetup with some geocaching friends at lunch time today – just for a quick half hour chat. Some of them dispersed to visit the local beer festival. I was good and did a 10.5 mile walk around the area collecting lots of solved puzzle geocaches and having my own little adventures finding some more challenging hides. It was also great to see John at the meetup (in the front, with the Zimmer frame). Just a month ago, shortly after he had finished organising the huge geocaching festival we had in Essex with the other committee members, he had a serious accident. He was extremely lucky – it could have been so much worse. He seems to be making amazing progress and refuses to be confined to bed but is up and pottering about where he can. An inspiration to us all! He is expected to make a full recovery – something which looked anything but certain when we first heard the news of his accident.
