Day #366

Day #366Title: The Years Tick By
Location: Faulkbourne
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I have reached the end of my 366 journey. I can’t quite believe I’ve made it this far. But I’ve had a very enjoyable year. So although I’ll be sorry to see the end of 2008, I’m happy that I have decided to continue my Photo A Day into 2009. This image was taken during a quick lunchtime trip around Witham, White Notley and Cressing. It’s a lovely Art Nouveau lamp from the church of St Germanus, Faulkbourne. Although I wasn’t specifically aiming at a date theme, this was the best image of the day as the weather was pretty cold and grey. I’ve just made it monochrome, no other effects added. A fitting end to the year’s pictures.

Day #264

Day #264Title: Snail Trail
Location: Shoreditch
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: Day 2 of Scriptingenabled was in Shoreditch. I arrived quite early, thanks to the hourly train service from Essex, and decided to walk from Liverpool Street to the venue in Kingsland High Street. This weekend is also London Open House, which I’ll be missing as I’m otherwise engaged, but I did get the opportunity to take pictures of a few buildings on my walk – there was a lovely sunny atmosphere at 9am. Just as I was approaching my destination, I looked down rather than up, and was rewarded with this cheeky bit of graffiti painted on the pavement. It made me smile.

Day #210

Day #210Title: Neighbours
Location: Burnham-on-Crouch
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
I had a client meeting in Southminster this morning and afterwards, decided to go a little further to Burnham for a walk along the sea wall and have some lunch at a local pub. I found these two lovely Georgian doors next to each other on the promenade – I rather liked their symmetry, even with the subtle differences.
