Day #3774

Posted by Caz on Tuesday, 1st May 2018

Day #3774Title: Home Time
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I get a bit frustrated with the Circle Line in the evening. I can wait 20-odd minutes for a service at Westminster, while 7 or 8 District Line trains flash past, crammed with commuters. If I time it wrong, it can mean almost a 2-hour trip home if I just miss a mainline train at Liverpool Street. They are usually every half hour but in the early evening there is a 40-minute gap. Anyway, today it all came together and I managed to get the earlier train I was aiming for. I made this while waiting (thankfully just 5 minutes) at Westminster tube station.

Notes: Once more, the neighbour’s Sprite is providing some photographic subject matter for the day.

Day #3768Title: The Train Has Left The Station
Location: Liverpool Street, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Waiting for a tube this morning, I wandered a bit further down the platform than normal and found the old signal box at the end made a good foil for the Roundel and Hammersmith & City Line train just heading in the opposite direction.

Day #3760

Day #3760Title: The Yellow Bicycle
Location: Westminster, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: As well as the familiar original blue (now red) “Boris Bikes” for hire in London, a slew of other options have started to spring up around the capital. Ofo is one such, which allows you to hire a bike and leave it anywhere, rather than having to find a docking station like the Boris Bike scheme. I wandered past The Speaker pub on my way to buy some lunch today and spotted the cheery yellow Ofo bike waiting patiently for its next rider outside.

Day #3755Title: Old Workhorse
Location: Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spotted this venerable old contraption today while I was on a visit to BBC Elstree for work. I liked the fact that it’s still in use, doing the thing it was intended for. It’s ancient but has been kept serviceable and useful as a valued piece of equipment. Perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 52, Old School.

Location: Ingatestone, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: The view as I got back to my car at the station late this evening, and realised I hadn’t taken any other photos. Oops.

Day #3732Title: Restoration Works
Location: Parliament Square, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was back in Westminster today for work, and took the opportunity to have a little wander around afterwards. Big Ben is currently shrouded in scaffolding, which actually looks quite picturesque at dusk when all the lights are on. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #58 – Scaffolding.

Day #3716Title: Back In The USSR?
Location: National Space Centre, Leicester
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I drove to Leicester today to the National Space Centre, not only to look at the space exhibits, but also to visit the Brickish Weekend, their annual exhibition of LEGO models. The Museum was very busy when I first arrived, and I had to queue up for a while before buying my ticket. However, I had this view of an old Soviet Soyuz to look at, so I was kept entertained while I waited. It makes a great shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 33, Something That Flies.

Day #3681Title: Hitched Up
Location: Maldon, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I managed to escape the tax return tedium for a couple of hours this morning to meet geocaching friends for a breakfast event on a Thames Barge in Maldon. We chatted and ate a hearty seafaring breakfast. Then the sun came out! So I hastily finished my breakfast bap and headed out on deck to find a picture for the day. The ropes made a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #65 – Tied Up.
