Day #1416 Title: Holding It Together
Location: ARU, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 20mm EF f/1.7
Notes: I might as well come right out with it – I hate November! I always feel low and depressed and the weather is usually rubbish too. We’ve had some grey old days so far this month. So a little burst of sunshine was very welcome today. I was at a business seminar at Anglia Ruskin University, run by Chelmsford Borough Council. This was a piece of sculpture I found during quick lunchtime stroll on the campus in between some excellent sessions on motivation – just the kick up the backside I needed! I felt this was a good omen – so one for Treasure Hunt Theme #49 – Good.

Day #1355 Title: Blue Glaze & Foliage
Location: Wivenhoe
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: I had to visit Colchester today to pick up my 24-105mm lens which has been at the menders. I took the opportunity to have lunch with Mum & Dad, who’s garden always looks nice, whatever the season. I love the deep blue glaze of these pots on their patio, which look great even when they are just full of foliage.

Day #1328 Title: Over The Hill
Location: Herrington Country Park, Sunderland
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: Despite it being quite sunny today, I didn’t take that many photos. Alistair and I went to a Teddy Bears’ Picnic Geocaching event at Herrington Country Park near Sunderland. After a fine feast at the picnic with our teddies, we went on a plastic box hunt around the extensive park. All good fun.

Day #1311 Title: As Far As The Eye Can See
Location: West Mersea
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This afternoon I spent a while pottering on the beach at West Mersea. It was too hot to work in my office at home and the sea breeze provided a welcome relief. And I was playing with my new lens again. Yes, I know I’ve photographed these huts before, but never with such a wide angle of view as this time! I was pleased to meet another couple of interesting strangers on the beach too.
