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 #3384Title: La Maison De Dieu!
Location: Audinghen, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: On Tuesday, the day after my new passport arrived, I made a snap decision to have a little trip to France and Belgium to do some geocaching, as I’d never visited either country since starting to look for tupperware. So I booked a very last minute trip and found myself on the Le Shuttle today, finally making it onto French soil around tea time (there were a few things I needed to do before leaving home, and then there was a tedious hour and a half delay in the crossing). I headed along the French coast towards Cap Gris Nez and found myself at this remarkable little church, Eglise Saint Pierre d’Audinghen. It was rebuilt in 1960 after being destroyed by allied bombing during World War II. The first striking thing is its huge concrete open bell tower in the shape of a lyre – which is what initially made me stop to take a look around. The porch is illuminated by this wonderful stained glass verse from Matthew VII. The sun was catching the letters at just the right angle to throw some fantastic coloured shadows on the paving. There was even a cache by the gate! Perfect. I knew it had to be picture of the day.
