Day #4005

Day #4005Title: Stand Out From The Crowd
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 (Sweet/Velvet/Twist)
Notes: I still love the colours of my LED tree, which stands in the corner. Isolating just one flower and throwing the rest out of focus gives a different view. How often do you stand out from the crowd?

Day #4001Title: LED Tartan
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 100-300mm f4.0-5.6 Lumix G Vario Power OIS
Notes: I wafted my camera at the neighbours’ LED Christmas lights this evening, and this is what I ended up with. I think it looks a bit like tartan.

Day #3993Title: Posh Tree
Location: Greenwoods Hotel & Spa, Stock
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spent a lovely afternoon taking Afternoon Tea at a posh hotel, a treat from a friend to celebrate her birthday. They had an enormous tree on display next to the fire place, festooned with lights, baubles and ribbons.

Day #3960

Day #3960Title: Fuzzy Neon
Location: Bluewater Shopping Centre, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was travelling back from an event in Surrey this evening and was met with huge queues for the Dartford Tunnel, thanks to 2 of the 4 lanes being closed due to emergency repairs to a massive pothole. I was getting hungry and needed the loo, so decided to divert to Bluewater for a bite to eat and use the facilities. Got to the car park and spent 50 minutes moving 12 cars’ lengths to find a parking spot! The whole place was just gridlocked. Anyway, after eventually managing to park, I headed inside and went to Ed’s Diner for a burger. This was some of the neon signage, which I had already shot on Day #3911. But this time a different angle and I did a few shots, some sharp, dome defocussed, and blended them in post production to give a more fuzzy glow around the tubes. Perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #26 – Double Or Multiple Exposure.

Day #3933

Day #3933Title: Lanterns Along The Wall
Location: Walkergate, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It was another busy day at the LEGO show today, and then we had to pack it all up and get home. By the time we were done, we were pretty tired, so a quick grab shot, late on, is all I managed today.

Day #3932Title: Drive The Train
Location: Newcastle Metro, Approaching Chillingham Road, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a very enjoyable day displaying my LEGO models at Discovery Brick Show today. After the show closed I met up with Alistair (who had been busy elsewhere during the day) and we enjoyed a lovely social with the other folks – first bowling and then dinner. So it was quite late by the time we made our way back home on the Metro. But one advantage is nobody was sitting in the front seats next to the driver’s cab, so we got a good view – and it always makes me feel like I’m driving the train! Anyway, makes a perfect shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 10, Long Exposure.

Day #3911Title: Abstract At Ed’s
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This evening I arranged to meet a friend at Bluewater on my way home from an event in Caterham. We had dinner in Ed’s Diner, and this was the view, when looking up, from my seat.

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.
