Day #2911Title: Metallic
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: This is the reverse detail of one of the geocoins in my collection. I chose the wrong white balance initially, and changed it before taking another shot, but on review, I actually quite like the blue tones here. There are some lovely details on this coin.

Day #2881Title: To Infinity And Beyond
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: A recent arrival, showing the focus ring on the lens of my KW Praktisix SLR, a medium format film camera with a rather nice Jena T 80mm f/2.8 lens. This is the focusing ring with its rather brash red diamond marking.

Day #2875Title: Strange Ingredients
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I’ve been looking at some of the outstanding treasure hunt themes over the past few days. This one had been bugging me for ages – but a slight shift in thinking produced something I was happy with. Treasure Hunt Theme #32 – Jars.

Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: This morning I was testing out my Splash Art Kit in preparation for giving a talk and demo this evening at Woodford & Wanstead PS. This is one of several which turned out OK.

Day #2803Title: Raw Materials
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Some raw materials for next year’s Film project have arrived from eBay. I’ve really enjoyed using my film cameras this year – but they have been exclusively black and white images made with fresh film. Next year I plan to use them again, but try one different (expired) colour film each week – which will take the pressure off carrying the heavy cameras around with me every day. I hope to get some interesting effects with using old stock – such as I have achieved recently with some Verichrome Pan (expired in July 1969) and Kodak Gold 200 (expired pre-2004).

Day #2710Title: Red On Yellow Splash
Location: Upminster Camera Club
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes:  I spent the afternoon sorting out my Splash Art II equipment to pack it up for transportation to Upminster Camera Club for this evening’s demo. Things didn’t go well -both my main and reserve valves seemed to be gummed up (despite them being cleaned after I last used them). So I tried for about two hours to flush them out with boiling water. I wasn’t convinced it had done any good, but took them along anyway. Having given my presentation during the first half, I set up for the demo and thankfully the valve I chose played ball. This is one of the demo crown shots which I made to show the members how it was done. Great for Treasure Hunt Theme #60 – Splash.
