Day #2192

Day #2192Title: Your Carriage Awaits
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: It was another wet, grim day and so we spent most of the day indoors until after dark. Then a short walk took us past the limo I photographed on Day #2178. And so that brings me to the end of my 6th year of daily picture-making. My carriage awaits into next year’s adventures!

Day #2178

Day #2178Title: The Limo
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: I had to take my “limo” into the garage for its MOT and annual service today. Walking home on the way back from dropping it off, I passed this real stretch limo parked in a residential street close to home. I’ve seen it a few times before, so I assume the chauffeur lives around here somewhere. The raindrops on the tinted windows added some extra texture. Sadly my own “limo” cost quite a few quid to repair, but at least I’ve got it back in good shape now for future winter journeys.

Day #2036

Day #2036Title: Smile For The (Speed) Camera
Location: Blackpool, Lancashire
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Alistair and I enjoyed a long geocaching walk around Fleetwood today before heading back to North Shore for our evening food. On the way to our chosen restaurant, it started chucking it down (again), but we didn’t get quite as wet as last night as we had taken a big golfing umbrella with us. After dinner, it had eased up a bit and this was made on the way back to the B&B. It makes a great scene for Treasure Hunt Theme #37 – Fast Vehicles. I’m not sure if the car was actually speeding, but choosing a long shutter speed certainly gave that impression! The Cybermen did some Beachcombing in Fleetwood, and I found some Shapely Shadows In The Sand.

Day #1980

Day #1980Title: Orange Landy
Location: Leazes Park, Newcastle
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: After another trip to help out at Maker Space this morning, Alistair and I took a walk to Leazes Park to meet up with a photographic friend for a look around the Newcastle Green Festival. This detail from an orange Land Rover caught my eye! Once we had finished, we then took the bikes on another long ride via Jesmond Dene and Gosforth. A tiring but fun adventure.

Day #1846

Day #1846 Title: White Overcoat
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I woke up this morning to see we had had a respectable amount of snow fall overnight. I managed to persuade myself to don my thermals and take a wintry walk to Galleywood Common this afternoon. But I wasn’t going anywhere in the car today – however I still liked the splash of red poking out from under its white overcoat.
