Day #151

Day #151Title: Dusk Over The Thames
Location: Westminster
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Another day at @media, plenty of interesting things to listen to. Plus I got to hang out with some delegates and a couple of the speakers afterwards, which was really nice – just chilling out watching the light fade from Hungerford Bridge, then enjoying a beer or two by the Thames. Great way to wind down after the conference.

Day #150

Day #150Title: Big Wheel
Location: South Bank, London
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Time for the annual @media web conference, one of the main events of London Web Week. So I spent most of the day (and a good chunk of the evening) on the South Bank with some old mates and making some new ones too. The London Eye towers over the top of the South Bank Centre, with Big Ben poking his face over the rooves.

Day #149

Day #149Title: Bricklayers Lampshades
Location: Bricklayers Arms, Fitzrovia, London
Camera: Canon EOS 300D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Another London Web Week event this evening, this time the Web Standards Group meeting about Findability. All interesting geek stuff. Afterwards, most of us repaired to the Bricklayers for a pint or two. Since none of the other pictures I took today have any photographic merit (!), this is the one you’ve got as Picture Of The Day.

Day #148

Day #148Title: hBeer!
Location: Yorkshire Grey, Grey’s Inn Road, London
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: London Web Week has begun, and tonight was the Microformats vEvent meeting at the Yorkshire Grey. There were a couple of speakers, free beer and giveaway sticker schwag. Some bright spark had the idea of shoving a logo on their pint – does this mean we need a new microformathBeer? RFC to follow 🙂

Day #147

Day #147Title: Zen Ripples
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Typical Bank Holiday weather – it’s been hissing down all day. I ventured out into the garden briefly before lunch – under the cover of a brolly – to photograph the rain landing in the Tsukubai bowl in the Japanese (Winter) corner of my garden. This had been empty on Saturday but was almost overflowing after two days’ rain. It’s quite diffucult trying to hang on to an umbrella in the wind with one hand while trying to zoom, compose and hit the shutter with the other! Japan gets quite a lot of rain, so their traditional garden philosophy is that things should look beautiful in all weather. I liked the ripples on the surface of the water as the raindrops fell – plus that wonderful rich caramel colour of wet bamboo.

Day #146

Day #146Title: Singin’ In The Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF-S f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: This week’s 366 theme is Song Titles, so I thought I would take advantage of the beautiful Bank Holiday weather to present you with a one-off, exclusive performance of “Singin’ In The Rain”. It was hammering down at the time – I hope you all appreciate how I suffer for my art! I haven’t attempted any self-portraits before, so please be kind to me…
