Day #3860

Day #3860Title: On Liberty…
Location: Portland Place, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had to go into London for a short but necessary meeting today – one of the hottest this year so far! I left plenty of time so that I wouldn’t be rushing about in the heat. Once I arrived at Broadcasting House, I noticed this statue of George Orwell by sculptor Martin Jennings had appeared. It was erected in November last year, and I don’t think I’ve been past this location since, so it was a surprise to see it. I liked the shapes made by the hard shadows on the wall. The inscription, one of Orwell’s quotes, is worth thinking about too…
If Liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”

Day #3779Title: Under The Gate
Location: Westminster, Londond
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was a sunny day today as I headed into work this morning. Walking past the Palace of Westminster, I always admire these gates when the sun in shining as they produce some fabulous shadows with the light in the right direction. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme # 16 – Barrier.

Day #3762Title: Open Wide
Location: Shepherds Bush, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I like the ceiling skylights in the Westfield Shopping Centre at Shepherd’s Bush. They remind me a bit of the domes at the Eden Project. I thought the mono treatment worked well to emphasise the geometric shapes.

Day #3734Title: Round The Bend
Location: Great Baddow, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After a cloudy start, the sun eventually came out this afternoon. I caught the shadows on this curvy ramp in Great Baddow at just the right time.

Day #3733Title: Whitehall Morning Stroll
Location: Whitehall, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This morning I managed to get a slightly earlier train to work which meant I had time for a quick walk from Charing Cross to Westminster to make some photos along the way. I passed this scene in Whitehall, where the lovely lamps and shadows caught my attention. I took a couple of shots with nobody in them, but then noticed this bobble-hatted lady approaching, so timed it carefully to make sure she was just in mid-stride.

Day #3728Title: Grumpy Stumpy
Location: Little Baddow, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was out this afternoon around Little Baddow looking for a handful of geocaches when I spotted this amusing face on a recently sawn up tree stump. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #34 – Grumpy.

Day #3724Title: Five To Four
Location: Holborn, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in London today for a couple of meetings. My route on foot took me past No. 1 Oxford Street – better known as Commonwealth House. I had never really noticed this imposing Art Deco building before – but doing some research when I got home, I realise it used to look rather shabby, which is probably why I overlooked it in the past. It has had a face-lift from Orms and now looks quite resplendent with bottle green hexagonal tiles on the curved “prow” and along the sides. Unfortunately, the light was a bit grotty today, so the shot looked better in mono here, but if you follow these links you should see some before and after shots taken by other people.

Day #3720Title: Concrete Jungle
Location: Manors, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was a bit of a cold, grey afternoon so I took the Metro to Manors and then the elevated walkway across the Central Motorway to get to an evening event venue close to the Metro Radio building.
