Day #3835

Day #3835Title: Family Outing
Location: Saltaire, West Yorkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I went out to Hirst Wood in Saltaire with friends Tim & Carolyn and their toddler Bethany. We had a lovely potter about amongst the trees, followed by a walk along the Canal to Roberts Park and a great little picnic in the shade. I caught the three of them in the woods with this shot, perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #29 – Family.

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.

Day #3806Title: Playtime In The Woods
Location: Thorndon Country Park, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I met up with geocaching friend Sue who was visiting Essex from her home in Ireland. I took her to Thorndon Country Park to find some caches, and we had an excellent time chatting away as we wandered the footpaths in search of Tupperware (and in some cases, some rather fine Ammo cans – a rare sight in the geocaching world these days). We found this woodland shelter which had been constructed and decided to pose for a picture.

Day #3761Title: Commonwealth Welcome
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting is taking place in London this week. Given the atrocious Windrush scandal which has now been uncovered, the timing of the meeting could not have been more embarrassing for the government. Good. Anyway, enough on politics – the national flags of the Commonwealth nations caught my eye, a-fluttering on their poles in Parliament Square.

Day #3726Title: That One Must Be Mine!
Location: Castle Hedingham, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I attended a lovely party for Ray, one of my geocaching friends, who was having a significant birthday. We got to stay in a big, posh country house, were fed delicious food and wine, and enjoy very convivial company. Here you can see Ray making sure everyone knows which is his cupcake!

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 #3672Title: Six Legs Walking
Location: Broadgate, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went to London for an event at Alexandra Palace today. On my way through Liverpool Street, I happened to spot this wonderful light on the pavement, reflected from some of the tall glass buildings nearby. I liked the frame, so waited for something to happen.
