Day #164

Day #164Title: Boscombe Chimes
Location: Boscombe Pier, Dorset
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: None
Notes: Another lovely day chasinge piers today – five in total! Having driven from Burnham-on-Sea this morning, I visited Weymouth Pleasure Pier, Weymouth Bandstand, Swanage and my last port of call was the charming little pier at Boscombe, two miles along the coast from it’s bigger brother, Bournemouth. Boscombe has several fun musical instruments dotted along its length. The first was these chimes which provided some fun reflections as well as an interesting sound.

Day #154Title: Pre-Emptive Strike
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Extras: YN560 Flash
Notes: I spent the morning on a 3-hour conference call and the afternoon running errands in town, neither of which were very conducive to photography. By early evening, I was beginning to feel a bit grotty – achy, shivery and slightly dizzy – and was wondering if I was going down with some nasty lurgy. So I took some pills and had an early night in the hope that this pre-emptive strike would stave off the worst of the symptoms.

Day #131Title: 2D Me
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Extras: Gorillapod / CamRanger
Notes: Yesterday’s excellent workshop with Gavin Hoey included a DVD for us each to take away, and a pair of 3D glasses. Due to being born severely cross-eyed (and having had 3 operations to correct it before I was five), I don’t actually have true stereo vision and can’t see any 3D images. But I thought I’d make use of them in this shot, deliberately swapping the colours over to emphasise my deficiency! I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hun Theme #73 – Divided.

Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Extras: YN560 Speedlights
Notes: I spent most of the day slaving over a hot computer, so not much opportunity to get out for pictures today. So here’s a simple shot of my silly Converse socks – perfect for Treasure Hunt Theme #28 – Shoes And Socks.

Day #42Title: Drinking Tea For England
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: If you could win an Olympic medal for drinking tea, I’d be on the podium, for sure. So I’m showing my support for TeamGB at the Winter Olympics in the best way I know how. It also makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #67 – Red, White & Blue.
