Day #2914Title: Corrugated Abstract
Location: Galleywood, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After several days of greyness and persistent rain, the sun finally came out today! So I hot-footed to Galleywood for a walk along some very muddy footpaths. And encountered this intriguing abstract.

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 #2901Title: Licorice Stick
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I’m trying to finish off the Treasure Hunt themes for this year and have a few outstanding which can be done at home. Good job, today’s weather was less than pleasant so instead we get a picture of my old clarinet for Treasure Hunt Theme #66 – Musical Instruments.

Day #2898Title: Highly Flammable
Location: West Mersea, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A visit to West Mersea provided today’s image, a storage locker on the harbour next to the RNLI Lifeboat station. I’m not sure what, if anything, is kept in there now!

Day #2883

Day #2883Title: Knocking On Heaven’s Door
Location: Nazeing Church, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m always captivated by the grain and patina on old church doors. It makes you wonder how many hands have rested on the handle to open it, over the years.

Day #2860

Day #2860Title: Monthly Garden Project – October
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Still not much progress with the garden this month – the weather hasn’t helped, the last few weeks have been a bit wet. But I decided to treat myself to a little bit of sculpture while I was at Beth Chatto’s Garden last weekend. These three metal poppies will add a lovely splash of colour, even on dark, dingy days. It’s also the County Flower for Essex (there are some surprising entries in that list!) which seemed appropriate. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #12 – Monthly Project – October.

Day #2825

Posted by Caz on Friday, 25th September 2015

Day #2825Title: High Five
Location: Broadgate Circle, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: I went to London today to attend the two-day Over The Air conference in Hoxton. On the way I passed through some of the new developments near Liverpool Street Station – I loved how the light was reflecting off this shiny metal wall, and the size of the number dwarfed the guy standing next to it, providing a curious visual tension to the image. So a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #47 – Tension.
