June ’13 – Review

Posted by Caz on Monday, 1st July 2013

June has been another varied and productive month for photography. Early on I caught a Spectacular Sunset, and also some effective coloured lights when walking back to the station via the Barbican Centre one evening. I’ve photographed it many times before, but the lights were fun:

We have had a good few Face Down Tuesday posts during June as well, starting with three from the BBC Stash: Reception Reflection EditionGreen Tea Bar Edition and Mezzanine Mosaic Edition; plus one taken especially as an extra at my monthly scenic location, Sandford Mill Footbridge Edition.

I have found another five image for my 50@50 project too: #22, #23, #24, #25 and #26. I’ve finally made some progress on my 100 Strangers images, finding three more willing models – #28 Brian#29 Tony and #30 Ross.

I enjoyed a day out with Dad for some Railway Nostalgia at the Epping to Ongar railway. We saw a few steam trains, sadly the sun didn’t want to play ball:

I also saw steam on the mainline later in the month when I watched A Tornado Blows Through!

Alistair and I had fun with some Roxwell Rambles when he was visiting too. This is a big house we saw on the way around:

There have been some good opportunities for mono images, although I’ve not been as prolific as I was for Mono MayHem. I made The TrophyShiny Steel & GlassOn The ShorelineShadows & Highlight and S Is For Sleek during June.

I’ve attended three photowalks this month, with varying success. First off was Evening In Colne Engaine with GNPC. I arrived a little early and made a pleasant scene in the woods during the afternoon:

Then we were Rained Off In Maldon a few days ago – and spent quite a lot of time in the pub talking about photography as a consequence!

Three days later I returned to Maldon for Chelmsford Photowalk #47 and the contrast could not have been greater – it was a wonderful sunny blue sky day. We enjoyed looking at all the highly polished Harleys basking on the Quayside:

And finally, but not least, on 22nd June, the momentous milestone D2K Arrived! Yes, 2000 consecutive days of pictures making. What a marathon! But don’t fear, I’m not giving up. Onwards and upwards – To (Project) Infinity And Beyond!

We had a lovely day out in Maldon today at the Bikes and Barges event down on the Quayside. There were plenty of shiny machines to photograph, great company, sunny weather and fun people to watch.

Photographically it was also very productive. I was able to chat to two more strangers for my project, #29 Tony and #30 Ross. There were mono details which caught my eye and the latest 50 @ 50 (2013) #26, as well as the best picture of Day #2008.

Here is the whole set from the day:
