Day #3647Title: Santa’s Gift
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Sweet 35mm f/2.5
Notes: Santa has been to visit, and he brought lots of lovely presents! They helped to keep my mind of feeling ill, which was good. It’s the first time I’ve not been well over Christmas in many years.

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 #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 #3576

Day #3576Title: Colourful Leafy Carpet
Location: Corbridge, Northumberland
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: It was a lovely sunny day today, which was fortunate as Alistair and I had planned to meet up with a photographer friend and visit Corbridge for the afternoon. We had a great lunch and relaxing walk along the banks of the Tyne – which is quite a small river at this point. There was a profusion of Autumn leaves kicking about too, I liked this collection with a bit of a blur vignette provided by the Lensbaby Trio.

Day #3488Title: Sweet Pea
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: Here are some sweet peas which are poking over next door’s fence into my garden. I thought a soft dreamy treatment was in order, so chose the Lensbaby Trio for this one, a lens I haven’t used in a while.

Day #3333Title: Who Stole My Heart?
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2 / +4 Close Up Lens / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: I’ve spent another arduous day tidying again. This time it was the photographic studio (aka box room). It was in a terrible mess, but now it’s pristine again! So to celebrate I made a couple of Valentine’s Day themed images, this one and American Minion Beauty for my Toybox weekly project. Rather pleased with how they both came out. Now all I have to do is keep the studio tidy so it’s easy to make more pictures in future.

Day #3319Title: The Soundtrack To My Life
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Lensbaby Composer Pro / Double Glass Optic 50 mm f/2 / Creative Bokeh Kit
Notes: I’m rather upset today, having just heard the news that John Wetton, one of my all-time favourite singer/songwriters, died this morning after a long battle with cancer. I’m not normally one to get gushy about celebrities, but John’s music has been the soundtrack to my life for 35 years, in various guises as a solo artist and in bands such as Asia and Icon. It was characterised by thoughtful lyrics, soaring melodies and full-bodied harmonies, tied together with John’s distinctive roaming bass lines. Not everyone’s taste, I admit, but I am grateful for his prodigious talent which has entertained me for so long. It was also a great privilege to meet the members of Asia, including John, when I saw them live in Toyko in 2012, on Day #1730. He was a gracious gent and very generous with his time after the show. RIP John. I just had to pay tribute with a picture of my own 5-string bass. I must play it more (I’m terribly out of practice, but John was one of the reasons I love the bass so much). Anyway, it also fits with the Treasure Hunt Theme #40 – I Am Grateful For…
