Day #4018Title: Holly’s Diner
Location: Latchingdon, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We went to a geocaching breakfast meetup today, at an American-themed diner. A strange find in the middle of rural Essex! But it was a fun social and a nice way to round off the year.

Day #4017Title: Lacking Inspiration
Location: Sandford Mill Lock, Essex

Notes: We were out for a quick walk today around Sandford Mill Lock. This poor boat looked like it was desperate for some TLC.

Day #4015Title: Monthly MOC – December
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I have just one Treasure Hunt theme to complete for the year (finally) and this is it. Although not all of these Micropolis models have been made this month, I wanted to put them all together for Treasure Hunt #12 – December Monthly Project to see just how far my city has grown over the year.

Day #4014Title: Grey At Grace’s Walk
Location: Great Baddow, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: It was a little foggy on the drive home today, but I knew it would make an interesting shot. So I stopped off at a spot I know of near Great Baddow to make this image of trees receding into the mist at Grace’s Walk.

Day #4013Title: Dancing Fairy Lights
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: My parents have had this set of fairy lights for years. They used to grace the tree when I was younger, but these days they hang across the top of some picture frames in their hallway giving off a festive bit of colour. I thought the one closest to the lens looked like a ballerina having a twirl in her tutu.

Day #4012Title: Dinner, Deconstructed
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This week is the last of the 52 weeks project and I had this idea cooked up (if you’ll pardon the pun) for a while. Just needed Christmas Dinner to be presented on the table! So here you are, Dinner Deconstructed, for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 42, Still Life With Five Objects.

Day #4011Title: The Workshop Bench
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I’ve had an idea for this image for a while, but not had the props to pull it off. But I knew Dad’s workshop would have just the right ingredients, so I went and raided his bits and bobs drawers today after I arrived for the Christmas holidays. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #46 – Nuts & Bolts. I ran in through Nik Analogue Efex Pro 2 for a vintage film feel.

Day #4010Title: Whistle While You Work
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I’ve been struggling a bit with the last few Treasure Hunt themes, but wanted to get another one done before Christmas. Only two left now! Then I remembered I had a camping kettle in the cupboard, and set it to boil for this shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #72 – Whistle.

Notes: On Day #3804 back in May, I showed you the LEGO ship Silent Mary as I was building it. I have now finished a load more work on the undersea diorama in which it sits. Here you can see the divers exploring the wreck amongst the coral reef.
