Day #2151Title: Disobedient Shadows
Location: Chelmer Park
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: A little scene from our sunny but cold walk in Chelmer Park this afternoon. I think the cricket groundsmen have cordoned off a new plot for next year’s crease. Our naughty shadows could not resist crossing the line!

Day #2126Title: Wedding Vows
Location: Clarence Dock, Leeds
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 70-300mm EF f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM
Notes: Yesterday my friends Heather and Dominic got married at a very small family wedding. Alistair was the best man. Today however, they had a “second” wedding and big party for their extended family and friends, saying their self-penned vows in front of us all during another ceremony. This time Alistair was in charge! What could possibly go wrong? Nothing, as he had his trusty “Conducting A Wedding For Dummies” book in hand throughout. It was a lovely event with plenty of amusements for kids big and small at the after party. I was very pleased to catch this picture of Alistair, Dom and Heather during the ceremony, looking like they were enjoying themselves immensely.

Day #2106Title: I See The Signs
Location: Toot Hill, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF5 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS Pancake
Notes: We went for a little geocaching walk around Toot Hill this afternoon, before Alistair set off for the long drive home to Newcastle. We found one of the old metal signposts on the village green, but we were quite surprised at how short it was!

Day #2103Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – October
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I know it’s less than 10 days since I’ve been to Sandford Mill for my September shot on Day #2094, but having a willing accomplice and a couple of newly purchased rainbow umbrellas, I thought I would make the most of the opportunity for October. Thanks to Alistair for posing with the brollies! Treasure Hunt Theme #10 – Once A  Month October.

Day #1996Title: Sandford Mill Footbridge – June
Location: Sandford Mill
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I managed to persuade Alistair to help me out with a silly shot for Face Down Tuesday today. And he was also good enough to clone himself six times to give my monthly picture at this location a bit of a twist. Of course, it provides my shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #06 – Scenic Location – June.

Day #1976Title: Safety First, Fashion Later
Location: Maker Space, Newcastle
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: We had a busy evening, first meeting friends in the pub for an early feed, then helping to pack up everything in Maker Space to prepare for their move to new, bigger premises in the centre of Newcastle. Alistair donned these “fashionable” safety glasses before taking down some shelving. I’ve had a fiddle with cross processing to give it a slightly different feel.
