Location: At home

Day #3640Title: Beeb In Blue
Location: Portland Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was back in London today, to see some BBC friends for the Christmas party. Auntie was looking resplendent with the blue lighting adorning New Broadcasting House, taken before I joined the festivities in the BBC Club nearby.

Day #3633Title: Electric Trees
Location: Whitecross Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I haven’t been to London for a few weeks but needed to visit again today. Thankfully the trains were all behaving themselves despite the snow yesterday (a miracle in itself). I arrived early for my meeting so took a stroll around Broadgate and Whitecross Place, always fertile ground for pictures. I cam across these fantastic LED-lit trees, with spectacular reflections in the wet pavement. Just my sort of thing!

Day #3632Title: Winter Postcard From Galleywood
Location: Galleywood, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We haven’t had a decent snowfall in Essex for a few years. There were light dustings on Day #3300 (Jan this year) and Day #2591 (Feb 2015) but it didn’t hang around for long. I think Feb 2013 was the last time we had enough to grind things to a halt for a little while! I woke up this morning to about 1cm but it carried on snowing heavily for a couple of hours, and by the time I went out for a walk up to Galleywood (leaving the car safely sleeping under its white blanket), there was about 5-6cm of accumulation. It looked very pretty as usual. But I was seriously wondering if I was getting frostbite at one point, as my toes had gone from painfully cold to completely numb, despite two pairs of socks on in my wellies. Eventually I managed to coax enough feeling into them to walk home! We are possibly expecting more tomorrow, which is a pain because I need to go to London and it will probably cause chaos on the trains. Thus endeth my note for Treasure Hunt Theme #49 – Postcards.

Day #3589

Day #3589Title: Manchester Lunchtime
Location: Manchester City Centre
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was back in Manchester today for the WordCamp event at the University. There were lots of engaging sessions so I didn’t have much time for photos. I nipped out at lunchtime, do be greeted with a deluge of that fine, misty rain, where you don’t think you’ll get wet but end up soaked within 5 minutes. So I gave up and went back to the conference venue to dry out! This forlorn little leaf was sitting on top of one of the uplighters in the pavement, which illuminate the building at night. As you can see, it’s all pretty damp.

Day #3588Title: The Busy Bee
Location: Manchester City Centre
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I went to Manchester with friend Tim, who kindly gave me a lift to an conference event we were both attending. We arrived very early as he had some setup to do (he was part of the organising team) so I took a wander around the City Centre until it was time for registration. Clearly the Mancunian folks feel strongly about Brexit – I found this European Flag on a wall, along with the city’s Work Bee symbol placed firmly in the middle. It made a great subject for Treasure Hunt Theme #62 – Stars (a much better replacement for the lacklustre attempt from Day #3562).

Day #3587Title: Steps To The Past
Location: Jervaulx Abbey, North Yorkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Time to leave Newcastle today, and head for West Yorkshire where I’m staying with some friends for a few days to catch up with them and go to a conference. One of my ports of call during a less-than-direct route was Jervaulx Abbey – geocaching-related diversions, of course! It’s the largest privately owned Cistercian Abbey in the country. I enjoyed a wander around the grounds and a very welcome cup of tea in the tearoom! I thought this would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #13 – Ancient.
