Day #334

Day #334Title: Cutting Edge
Location: Sheffield
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 17-85mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: The morning dawned cold and foggy, and by evening it was back to that too. But for an hour or so in the early afternoon, the sun came out and I was able to dash out for a few photos close to the BarCampSheffield2 venue. This sculpture, Cutting Edge, is located on the pedestrian walkway from the main Railway station and the sun was hitting it in just the right angle for a good picture. We went out geocaching later on, and I got some atmospheric dusk fog shots too, but I still liked this one best for today’s image.

Day #108

Day #108Title: Priory Place
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I was due in London for a luncthime meeting and evening social today. It was a nice morning, so I walked the 2 miles to the station, only to find the trains were all up the creek with no resolution due for hours. So I postponed the meeting, bought some lunch in town and caught the bus home again! This was taken on my way into Chelmsford – it’s a polished steel sculpture outside the new County Court building on the corner of New London Road and Parkway.

Day #7

Day #7Title: Neal Archer
Location: British Museum
Camera: Canon Ixus 850IS compact
Notes: I had a couple of meetings in London this morning, but was able to get time to see the Chinese Terracotta Warriors at the British Museum during the afternoon. This was one of the first you saw as you entered the exhibition. I managed a couple of shots and then one of the staff said "no photos". Loved the dramatic lighting which really accentuated the modelling on the face. I know he wasn’t really called Neal, but I can’t read Mandarin…
