Day #3878Title: 101 Blue
Location: Nene Valley Railway, Wansford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was time to drive south again today. As it turned into rather a long journey due to an accident on the M11, I was glad I chose to stop off for a sandwich and stretch my legs for a late lunch at the Nene Valley Railway at Wansford. I also had a quick wander around the yard, spotting this rather fine Swedish Railways Class B 4-6-0 Express locomotive, No. 101. It was built by Nyquist and Holm in 1944, and saw service until 1958, after which it was mothballed for military reserve until it was finally scrapped in 1979. The NVR bought it and restored it, and it is apparently a favourite of film makers – did you know that it was this loco, disguised as an East German engine, which demolished a Mercedes in the James Bond film Octopussy? Nope, neither did I until I read the info board next to it! Anyway, this is a great shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 17, Blue.

Day #3854Title: Hiding In Plain Sight
Location: Quayside, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: We were supposed to be taking it easy today, as we have an early start tomorrow, but we ended up spending most of the day in Newcastle having a very sociable day and meeting up with various friends in several different pubs! Ooops. Eventually we stopped for some dinner before making our way back home. This was the view from the Quayside just as I was heading back to Manors Metro station. I always like the view of the Shiny Slug (Sage in Gateshead), especially at dusk when it is lit up from the inside. The shiny reflective roof seems to melt into the sky as if the slug is trying to hide in plain sight. I thought it made a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 32, A Great View.

Day #3847Title: The Simplicity Of White
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Been busy and it was getting late, so I turned to 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 25, White for inspiration.

Day #3839Title: Rusty The Dragonfly
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent the day at my parents’ again today, while Dad was chasing steam trains in Norfolk. There is some odd wildlife in their garden… But it made an ideal shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 38, Something With Rust.

Day #3832Title: Arboreal Landscape
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I took a little walk around the estate this evening to look for pictures, the breeze was cool and the sun wasn’t too fierce any more. I came across this wonderfully textured tree stump and made this image – I figured it was hard to tell the scale and imagined it could look like a much bigger landscape seen from above. Anyway, it’s perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 45, Texture.

Day #3823Title: Broken Crown
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: This one was made during a demo to East Ipswich Camera Club on High Speed Flash & Water Droplet photography. It is a crown which has been broken by the odd angle of the valve. I liked the asymmetry of it, and it works well for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 46, Broken.

Day #3802Title: There’s Been Some Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a little walk in the garden today, after it had rained. The droplets on the Caster Oil Plant were giving some next highlights. A good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 50, In My Garden.

Day #3797Title: Shivering Sands Fort
Location: Thames Estuary, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: One of my geocaching friends arranged another trip out on a boat today so we could grab a new Virtual geocache at Shivering Sands Fort in the Thames Estuary. It was a great day out, a little bit more choppy than last time but thankfully nobody was seasick. Perfect for 52 Themes 2018 – Topic 49, Water.
