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 #62

Day #62Title: Seen Better Days
Location: Brightlingsea, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 75-300mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: Walked a windswept couple of miles this morning around Brightlingsea with Mum – there were some lovely dilapidated old beach huts to photograph. But I thought this was the most appropriate for this week’s 366 theme, Seen Better Days. It was rather unusual – such a posh Art Nouveau letterbox in the side of a peeling old door to a boatmaker’s workshop seemed rather incongruous.
