Title: Shadows Of Metal
Location: Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This evening’s break in the journey was at Goff’s Oak. The shadows are on the side of the cricket pavilion, cas by the geometric railings next to it.
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH3 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A low-inspiration shot this evening.
Title: Concrete Chocolate
Location: Holland-on-Sea, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX7 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went to the seaside today to meet some geocaching friends. We took a walk along the sea wall at Holland-on-Sea – it seems to be made of concrete chocolate. Not my favourite kind of chocolate, but probably more effective as a sea defence!
Title: Marble Quadrants
Location: Beeleigh Lock, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: This bit of architectural detail took my eye as I was walking to work this morning along City Road.
Title: Beachcomber I, II & III
Location: Broadstairs, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: In November, I visited my friend Julian who had just moved back to his childhood home of Broadstairs. We enjoyed a bracing walk along the beach in the sunshine on the Sunday, and I made a collection of pebble and sand images. These three fitted together particularly well, so I had them printed up and framed as a triptych for his Christmas present. They went down rather well.
Title: Manhole Cover Patterns
Location: West End, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 /14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: We’ve had some foul weather during the summer, but it doesn’t mean you can’t find pictures – you just have to look in different directions. I made this during a lunchbreak wander around the West End after a rain storm. I love the way the water has pooled in the little depressions in the metal, and this one was crying out for a strong mono treatment. This very nearly made it to pic of the day for Day #1663, but was pipped to the post by the strong lines of the building.
