Day #4000

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 13th December 2018

Day #4000Title: 4K Retrospective
Location: East Hanningfield, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 7-14mm f4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: After an inauspicious start nearly 12 years ago, my daily photo journey has now reached 4000 consecutive days. I’m amazed I have kept going that long. There have been times were I didn’t want to, but I made a picture anyway. So today I spent a little time looking at a slideshow of the last 11 years, 11 months and 13 days!

Location: Galleywood Common, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went for a work on Galleywood Common today, and who should I come across but this lovely colourful fellow. Perfect for 52 Weeks – Topic 21, A Bird In The Wild.

Day #3942Title: Colchester Castle
Location: Colchester, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was in Colchester for a meeting this afternoon, and took the opportunity to take a quick walk around the Norman castle grounds beforehand, to find a picture for today. It makes a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 12, Ancient.

Day #3924

Day #3924Title: Monthly MOC – September
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: Here’s a minifig’s eye view of part of Blockville, my ongoing LEGO City project. It’s larger scale than my Micropolis builds, but I still enjoy putting everything together and adding finishing touches. This view is not normally easy to take because something else is usually in the way, but I had to move the other building while doing some work. This is my image for Treasure Hunt Theme #9 – September Monthly Project.

Day #3917Title: On Top Of The Roof
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 100-300mm f4.0-5.6 Lumix G Vario Power OIS
Notes: Looking north across the rooftops as the sun sinks down to the west. I always think it looks like this tree is growing out of the chimney! Anyway, it makes a good shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 40, Top.

Day #3881Title: Windswept Life
Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I am making a flying visit to Newcastle for a couple of days on my way to/from Stirling for the weekend. A quick walkabout in the city centre near the Centre for Life this morning yielded this image – an off-beat take on 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 7, A Lone Tree In The Landscape.

Day #3836

Posted by Caz on Monday, 2nd July 2018

Day #3836Title: Ferrybridge From Afar
Location: Sutton, North Yorkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Time to go home today, but first I had a drive around east of Leeds, picking up some specific geocaches which were on my list. This is a view of the iconic Ferrybridge Power Station (more readily seen when driving along the A1 in the area). Looking at the map later, I realise that a chunk of North Yorkshire protrudes between West and East Yorks at this point – so I’m in North Yorkshire looking a mile or so into West Yorkshire. Not that you care. Probably… Anyway, I liked the way the large clump of trees in the foreground dwarfed the huge cooling towers behind, which normally dominate the landscape for miles around.

Day #3737Title: Completely Barking
Location: Admiral’s Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I had a wander around Admiral’s Park this afternoon, looking for a geocache. Along the way I spotted this birch tree with some fantastic bark textures. I wanted to contrast the natural forms with the man-made fence behind.

Location: Heaton, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Alistair and I took a walk into town today for an afternoon event. On the way, I spotted this white Birch tree contrasting starkly with some industrial architecture behind.

Day #3664Title: Perched
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I made these two little birds from the 2016 Christmas Advent LEGO set, which I swapped with a friend for a 2017 duplicate I had. I thought they needed a tree to sit in and watch the world go by.
