Day #363Title: Musically Minded
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: Over the years I’ve learned to play various musical instruments, including Piano, Recorder, Clarinet, Percussion and most recently Electric Bass. I’m not very good at the latter, but I enjoy a noodle along to some of my favourite tunes every now and then. This is the last of the Treasure Hunt Themes #12 – In The Frame – December.

Day #334Title: Cat Allergy
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: The penultimate shot in my once a month series, this one is about feline friends. Sadly, although I love cats and would be happy to have one share the house, I’m allergic to them which means I start wheezing and my eyes stream if I touch them. All rather a shame – although probably for the best – otherwise I might be a mad cat woman with hundreds of them! A shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #11 – Once A Month – November. Just in time!

Day #298Title: Not Your Average “Essex Girl”
Location: At home
Camera:  Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger / 2x Yongnuo YN560 Flashes
Notes: Born and bred in Essex I may be, but thankfully I do not conform to the infamous Essex Girl stereotype! For starters, I would break my ankle (and probably my neck) if I ever wore stilettos. And there’s plenty on my mind other than shopping, make-up and getting paralytically drunk on a Friday night. I knew I would need a few props for this shot, and had been looking for something suitable for quite a while. A trip to the quintessential Essex town, Billericay, proved very fruitful today. (Got to love the charity shops). Anyway, this is the first (and last) pair of stilettos I have ever owned. Along with the garish handbag, they will be re-donated to a nearby worthy cause very soon! A great image for Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Once A Month – October.

Day #272

Day #272Title: Rugby Fan
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger / Yongnuo YN-14EX Macro Ring Flash
Notes: Just before I run out of month, I thought I ought to do my next In The Frame shot. This time, it shows I’m a big of a rugby fan. I first got into it when England won the 2003 Rugby World Cup. I used to attend as many England games as I could at Twickenham, and saw Saracens play numerous times around the UK, but recently the ticket prices have shot up and I’ve been distracted with other activities. I still watch the Six Nations tournament when I can, however. Treasure Hunt Theme #09 – Once A Month – September.

Location: At home

Notes: Just in time for June’s In The Frame Shot. Although I’ve not been on my bike for a while, I do enjoy cycling – I guess I get it from my Dad who regularly rides 30-40 miles a week, just for the fun of it. Treasure Hunt Theme #06 – Once A Month – June.
