Location: Elham, Kent
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: This afternoon I headed down to Kent to visit friends for Christmas. I was able to take a quick walk around the pretty village of Elham before the sun finally set. This is a lamp post near the main square.

Title: Any Old Iron
Location: Central Leeds
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.8
Notes: I spent a most enjoyable day at LeedsHack today, and managed a quick geocaching walk this evening with Alistair. We found four caches, and on the way along the canal, this scene presented itself as the sun was going down – detail from a rather fine old Victorian bridge.

Title: Through The Square Window
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I enjoyed an evening photoshoot with the folks from GNPC today. We went to Heybridge Basin which is always good for photographic opportunities. Several of us were also in need of some dinner, and so we ordered food at The Jolly Sailor and sat outside waiting for it. Initially, the light was rather flat and boring so we didn’t mind not taking picutres, but then the sun broke through and the food still hadn’t arrived! I took this shot of the pub door from the outside table whilst waiting for my plate to arrive. One of the three themes we were looking for during the shoot was squares, so this fitted the bill nicely. I was also very pleased to have found another willing stranger for my project before everyone else turned up.

Title: Oaklands House
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: Some great evening light on Oaklands House, in Chelmsford. The house was completed in 1867 for wealthy Chelmsford merchant Frederick Wells, and was designed by his brother-in-law Charles Pertwee. It is apparently in the Italianate style very similar to Queen Victoria’s retreat, Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. In 1929, Oaklands House and the surrounding park were purchased by Chelmsford Borough Council and it is now home to the Chelmsford Museum, recently extended with a new wing (out of shot on the right) which opened in 2010.
