Day #2917

Day #2917Title: Moored Fishing Fleet
Location: Wivenhoe Quay, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I enjoyed a walk to the Quay this morning – the sun even came out for me! The fishing fleet in the village used to be huge, but these days there are only a handful of vessels registered. They were all quiet and restful today.

Day #2906Title: Winter Commute
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The downside of Winter is a commute home in the dark. It’s even worse when it’s also raining. Bah! Humbug!

Day #2900

Day #2900Title: Piggyback
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The car is stick again – sick enough to require hauling onto the back of a recovery truck for a piggyback ride to the garage. The one saving grace was that it died on my driveway, not out in the middle of nowhere like last time! I expect the next few days to be expensive… Sadly, not a very auspicious picture for milestone day 2900, but sometimes life doesn’t go to plan.

Day #2810

Day #2810Title: Red Rascal’s Reflection
Location: Hoe Mill Lock, Ulting, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The towpath between Hoe Mill Lock and the little church across the water at Ulting is delightful to walk along on a sunny Autumn afternoon. The air was crisp and the colours were vibrant. Red Rascal is the canal boat which was moored next to the stretch of green algae on the water.

Day #2749

Day #2749Title: Crusty Hull
Location: Old Leigh, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: A sunny Saturday afternoon is perhaps not the best time to visit Leigh-on-Sea – it was heaving. But the little marina at one end of Old Leigh was much quieter. I liked this crusty hull, moored up near the slipway.

Day #2743Title: All About Green
Location: Promenade Park, Maldon
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario Power OIS
Notes:  Today was the annual Classic Car Show in Maldon. The morning was horrible with torrential rain, but it looked like it was going to perk up after lunch, so I headed over mid-afternoon. Sure enough, the sun came out and I had a grand couple of hours wandering about looking at all the shiny cars, some festooned with ridiculous fins and outrageous paint-jobs. This is the door handle from a rather smart pea-green Cadillac, and makes the 4th in my mini series of automotive-details-in-colours-of-the-rainbow. (See also Day #2707, Day #2729 and Day #2735 for the rest).

Location: Great Baddow
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 Lumix G II ASPH
Notes:  Following on from my All About Red and Orange automobile shots, today was the turn of a yellow Mini I spotted while out shopping.
