Location: Wivenhoe, Essex

Notes: Another boring day at home, I’m afraid. But I needed to do something for this weeks 52 Weeks challenge, and this sprang to mind for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 36, Key(s).

Day #3849Title: Time To Say Goodbye
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’ve been thinking about it for several months, as it isn’t something to be taken lightly, but today I gathered together all of my remaining Canon camera gear and took it to Cameraworld in Chelmsford to sell. It was certainly a bittersweet event as I’ve been a Canon SLR/DSLR user since 1990. But this lot has had just two outings in the last 18 months, both to photograph splash images at home, and has sat unused in the cupboard for the remainder. Each time I took it out my first thought was “god, this is heavy“, which is why I have been using my Panasonic Micro 4/3rds cameras and lenses pretty much continually since I bought them. Anyway, bye bye Canon, you’ve been a fantastic workhorse over the many years (and many cameras/lenses I’ve owned during that time). Never fear, I still have one left – my first DSLR, the 300D – just for old times’ sake.

Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS

Day #3714Title: Cosy Now
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I woke up this morning to a cold house. What’s up!? The boiler was showing an error which, when Googled, suggested it was a frozen condensate pipe. Argh! I had a brief phone chat with my lovely plumber who advised the best way to thaw it out. So I then spent half an hour in the snow outside pouring hot water over the pipe from a handful of flasks. This task would have been easier were it not for the fact that half the 6ft run is on the wall behind my shed! I just managed to shove my arm (holding the flask) in between wall and shed to do the deed. Thankfully, the boiler woke up soon afterwards and I was toasty again! Phew. I’ve added a bit more lagging to the most likely place it froze, which will hopefully prevent a recurrence.

Day #3702Title: 3F
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Afraid it was another grim day outside again. I’m feeling low on inspiration at the moment, with the odd exception. A winter slump, but I expect I’ll get over it. So I turned to the Treasure Hunt for ideas. I must admit that this year’s topics are not as good for indoor winter shots – a lot of them seem to relate to outdoor activities. But I chose this one with a bit of left-field thinking. OK, this is a bad pun. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #74 – Yard.

Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s been a bit cold recently, so I’ve been using this fleecy blanket to warm my toes. I sound like such a granny! Anyway, it makes an appropriate shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic #11, Warm. Sorry I couldn’t think of anything more interesting for this “milestone” day.
