Day #291Title: Ready For The Duck Race
Location: The Swan, Chappel & Wakes Colne, Essex
Camera:  GoPro Hero 3+ Black
Extras: GoPro Pole / Wireless Remote
Notes: This afternoon I went to a fun geocaching event, Quacky Races. There were two duck races with 100 plastic ducks in each. My big chum Shifty was a guest swimmer at the end. We all had a silly time, I was on duty as official photographer again.

Day #173Title: Geek Picnic
Location: Grantchester Meadows, Cambridge
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Mini Tripod / Wireless Remote
Notes: It was PuntCon12 today in Cambridge. Lots of geeks hire punts and go to Grantchester Meadows for a big picnic. Here you can see me with several dodgy characters lurking in the background: Mr Duck, Leeky, Sean (hugging Shifty the big duck) and Alistair (modelling my silly sun hat).

Day #25Title: Save Water, Bath With A Friend
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: CamRanger
Notes: This week’s homework from our Creative & Artistic Photographer sessions at GNPC was to spend at least half an hour in the bathroom seeing what pictures we could make. Once I’d found something suitable for my general Photo A Day, I took a relaxing soak in the bath with my giant duck, Shifty (he’s called that because he always looks like he’s been up to no good). The title was inspired by the catch phrase which was popular during the 1976 drought in the UK.
