Day #3649

Day #3649Title: Puddles & Patterns
Location: Colchester, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was a bit of a grotty day with sleet and snow predicted. I headed home from my parents first thing this morning, but had to stop off at the supermarket on the way to pick up a few essentials. I spotted this oilslick rainbow in a puddle in the car park. It was more colour than I saw for the rest of the day – it was snowing quite hard on the way home, but fortunately it didn’t settle.

Day #3648Title: Handsome Metal Fella
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This chap was a present I gave my Dad last Christmas (he has a bit of a chicken fixation). He still proudly sits on the hearth, looking splendid (the chicken, not my Dad). The lurgy is improving slightly, but I still don’t feel too good.

Day #3646Title: Hanging Around
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Sweet 35mm f/2.5
Notes: Actually, this should probably be called “solidering on”. Last night, I began to come down with a nasty cough and Christmas Lurgy. Just what I need! Still, I went to visit Mum and Dad to stay with them over Christmas, and tried to keep my germs to myself. This is one of the ornaments on their tree.

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 #3628Title: Glass Impression
Location: At home, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2
Notes: Another day with grey uninspiring weather, so I turned to my bespoke stained glass window for a bit of inspiration today. I designed it and had it made years ago – in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s rose design. I decided to pick out one of the details of a leaf today, as it was casting interesting shapes on the white backing behind.

Day #3627Title: LED Patchwork
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2
Notes: The weather has turned rather grotty and there wasn’t any interesting light during the day, so I waited until dark fell and took a wander around some of the neighbours’ houses looking for some Christmas lights to play with a bit of ICM. I liked the different patches of colours in this one, and thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #45 – Patchwork.

Day #3624Title: The Red Tarp
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, Paper Mill Lock
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It was a bit grey first thing, but the sun came out by mid-morning. A friend was coming over for lunch so we headed out to Paper Mill Lock to have a sandwich and some very tasty cake at the little lockside café. Then a quick walk along the towpath, avoiding the worst of the muddy patches. This boat was wrapped up well for the winter – the red tarp popped against the blue sky reflected in the water.
