Day #709

Day #709 Title: Floating, Sinking
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: This is my Tsukubai bowl in the garden. Once again, it’s full of rainwater and there are dead leaves inside which really need clearing out. I photographed it on Day #147 too. But this time I think it’s more of a metaphor for my recent moods – various factors have had me up and down of late. I’m just not sure when I get up in the morning if I’m going to feel like the bamboo, calmly floating on top of it all – or like the leaves, submerged, and in need of fishing to the surface. Hey ho. I guess it’s the Winter Blues.

Day #699

Day #699 Title: Rainbow’s End
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 75-300mm EF f/4-5.6 IS USM
Notes: I was doing more house-blitzing today, and having turned out a load of rubbish from varioius cupboards, I headed to the tip with a carful. Just after I’d unloaded everything the heavens opened, so I was lucky to avoid a soaking. When I got home I saw this rainbow from my study window – I wonder if the neighbours have a pot of gold stashed somewhere? Perhaps they should turn out a few cupboards too!

Day #644

Day #644 Title: The Long Drive  Home
Location: A12, Brentwood
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I went into London this evening for a planning meeting for BarCampLondon, this time as a passenger in my friend’s car. It was a horrible evening for going anywhere, with drizzly rain and miserable grey clouds. I have to say that when I see a long queue of traffic in the other direction, I do feel a bit smug sometimes. But on this occasion, I felt rather sorry for the commuters heading home from a day at work. Traffic jams seem to be one of the curses of modern day living – rather conveniently fitting in with this week’s 52Themes2009 subject.

Day #624

Day #624 Title: Rain, Rain, Rain
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: What an uninspiring day. Incessant rain, which hasn’t helped my mood at all. Yesterday, I found out a big project which I was about to start is – at best – probably postponed until next year, and – at worst – off altogether. I felt like taking a walk today but the rain prevented me from doing anything more than nipping to the shops in the car. Hopefully things will pick up soon, and I’m not just talking about the weather!
