Day #3850Title: Bright Idea In The Evening
Location: Walkergate, Newcastle
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent too many hours on the road today, with some long delays, but I eventually arrived at Alistair’s house and was relieved to finally get out of the car, which had been an oven for most of the journey. Thankfully it’s a bit cooler up in Newcastle than it has been at home. These are some outdoor LED lanterns hanging in Alistair’s garden, which provide some after-dark colour.

Day #3842Title: Purple Pom-Pom
Location: South Woodham Ferrers, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Against my better judgement, I ventured out of the house today for a lunchtime geocaching meetup and then took a little drive around to find some more. It was ridiculously hot, but it was good to get out of the house for a while. I spotted this lovely thistle, laden with pollen and just waiting for some bees to arrive, while I was walking between two caches near South Woodham Ferrers.

Day #3833Title: Leaf On A Dusty Car
Location: Menston, West Yorkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Much of today was spent on the road, making a long, very hot and immensely tedious journey to West Yorkshire to visit friends for the weekend. After many delays and diversions, I had a bit of respite just before arriving at my final destination and went to find a handful of geocaches on the moors overlooking Otley. When I eventually got to Menston, I parked my car, unpacked and then noticed this little red leaf had landed on the bonnet. I loved the quiet composition of the shapes, colours and shadows. My only regret is that the car was so dusty, which I didn’t notice until much later – I would have spent the rest of eternity spotting it out to my satisfaction, so just decided to go with it as found!

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 #3822Title: The Splash Zone
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Tomorrow I’m giving a lecture and demo to East Ipswich Camera Club on High Speed Flash & Water Droplet photography. As usual, I dug the kit out and tested it thoroughly today, to make sure it was all working. This was one of the abstract shots I made during the tests.

Day #3819Title: Farewell London
Location: Hammersmith, London
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: A bittersweet Runrig gig tonight, attended with a couple of good friends from Chelmsford, who I’ve known since the late 1990’s. We “met” on the Runrig fan club’s email discussion list and have been friends ever since. This was Runrig’s last ever show in London, with one more in Manchester tomorrow and their final final hurrah in Stirling mid-August. They were sounding better than ever, but have decided they’re getting a bit long in the tooth to keep touring! Anyway, I decided to travel light, and just took some cash and my phone. How times have changed – even just a few years ago, taking photos during the show would have had you thrown out of the venue. But in these days of high quality cameras on phones, they would basically have to chuck everyone out! So I managed to make a few images on my phone during the show. With a slight twist, I decided this would fit the bill for Treasure Hunt Theme #48 – On The Phone.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today’s shot shows you the imposing entrance doors to the LEGO Ninjago set, the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon. I love the contrast between that vibrant red and the grey and navy colours. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #28 – Entrance.
