Day #3644Title: The Little Forest
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I popped into the local Garden Centre this afternoon, for some last minute present shopping. While I was there I noticed they had a few little Christmas decorations at half price – so I invested in this tiny little forest under a glass dome. I liked the contrasting shapes and tones which came out in monochrome.

Day #3636Title: In The Corner
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This detail from the corner of an ornate picture frame hanging in my studio caught the light in just the right way this evening, and the pattern stood out in high relief.

Day #3611Title: Shadow Play – November
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Another burst of sunlight in the photographic studio gave me the opportunity for an indoor shadow shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #11 – November Monthly Project.

Day #3587

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.

Day #3573Title: Deconstructed
Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m staying with Alistair for a couple of weeks in Newcastle and today we visited the new Maker Space 3.0 premises which the project has recently moved to – from this place just around the corner! It’s being demolished for redevelopment, and this was the view from an upper window of the newer place, looking at the destruction. It made a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #57 – Ruin.

Day #3567Title: Shadow Play – October
Location: RSPB West Canvey Marsh, Canvey Island
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went for a walk around the RSPB West Canvey Marsh reserve today. Not looking for birdies, but plastic boxes. I found quite a few! And I also found the shadow of these grasses made intriguing shapes on the path as I passed. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Monthly Project.

Day #3544Title: Victory On High
Location: Colchester, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in Colchester this evening for a geocaching meetup. There is a new Virtual Cache (no phyiscal box, but you have to answer some questions after visiting a location) at the War Memorial opposite Colchester Castle. It’s a fine bit of architecture which I’ve been familiar with for donkey’s years, but today’s mission made me look at it again with more detail. Funny how the familiar can become more worthy of scrutiny given a suitable prompt!
