Day #2913Title: Running On Full
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Just when I thought the car saga was done and dusted, I’ve had a suspicion over the past few days that the garage have refitted the fuel gauge backwards… It’s been going up steadily the more I’ve driven it! I thought I was going mad. But today I got the final proof – this is what it looked like just after I had been to the pump and filled the tank – now the gauge says its empty and the warning light has come on! You can’t make it up…

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 #2891Title: Kinky, Dirty & Cheap
Location: Warley, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The owner of this battered old VW Beetle certainly has a sense of humour – the caption “Kinky, Dirty & Cheap” was plastered all over the sun visor!

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 #2718Title: Porsche Tag
Location: Dinsdale Place, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 24mm EF-S f/2.8 STM
Notes:  Today we had another long walk looking for street art and graffiti around the city. There are several legal sites for artists to paint – this is the one at Dinsdale Place, reflected in the window of a parked Porsche. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #52 -Wheels.
