Day #1052

Day #1052Title: Bows
Location: Southwick
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I drove down to West Sussex today as I was booked to judge a print competition at Steyning Camera Club this evening, on the recommendation of fellow Photo-A-Day veteran Ken Scott. Arriving during the afternoon, I went for a potter along the canal at nearby Southwick and found the bows of this boat with its peeling paint. After an excellent dinner in Shoreham with the club’s programme secretary Malcolm Bull, the evening itself went well and I got some very positive feedback from the club members, whose work I greatly enjoyed seeing.

Day #1000

Day #1000 Title: o V l
Location: Maldon
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: Well, it’s a milestone I wasn’t ever intending to aim for, but here we are! What better way to celebrate than to go out on a photoshoot with friends, I thought. Although the friends played ball, the weather didn’t. So four of us trudged around a very wet quayside at Maldon for a while and then decided to retire to the pub! This was the locking mechanism of one of the hold covers on a Thames Barge, moored at the Quay. It was the best I could do given the miserable weather – so perhaps a good one for Treasure Hunt Theme #58 – Frustrated!

Day #975 Title: Flakey II
Location: Carlisle
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Day one of my holidays! I spent most of it driving, but managed a quick walk in the centre of Carlisle as the light was looking rather nice. Flakey paint on a old door attracted my attention. I thought it made a good find for Treasure Hunt Theme #19 – Dilapidation/decay.

Day #940 Title: Holed Above The Waterline
Location: Tollesbury
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: I went on a photowalk with the GNPC folks this evening, in Tollesbury. Unfortunately, the light wasn’t great so I decided to concentrate on taking some details of the boats and nautical paraphernalia. This was the side of a fibreglass boat – not sure how seaworthy it is! But I liked the colours, shapes and textures.

Day #845

Day #845Title: Handy
Location: Cambridge
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I spent the day at Barcamb3 in Cambridge, held at the offices of software development company Red Gate. Each employee has a hand print on one wall, and I liked this rather attractive multi-coloured example from Elizabeth. I thought it would also make a good addition to the Treasure Hunt Theme 24: Hands.
