Day #2023

Day #2023Title: Hole In The Wall – Repainted
Location: Chelmsford
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I last photographed this wall nearly three years ago on Day #1060 – when it showed some interesting patina to the old paint. I’ve noticed over the past few weeks that the owner has been renovating the panels one by one and repainting them in vibrant colours. So I thought this would make a good subject for today’s image.

Day #1917Title: Copper, Iron & Ceramic
Location: Museum Of Power, Langford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I enjoyed a day out at the Museum of Power in Langford, with the Chelmsford Photowalk folks. There was loads of things to see and machines to watch as they whirred and span. I loved the bottle green ceramic tiles behind this shiny copper and iron plumbing.

Day #1853

Day #1853 Title: Curvature III
Location: Oaklands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: I needed some shopping from the town today and as it was sunny, I decided to walk. I’m glad I did – there were queues for the car parks everywhere! So I was feeling rather smug about getting some fresh air, exercise and pictures while all the other lemmings were sat waiting in their metal boxes. My route back went through Oaklands Park, home of Chelmsford Museum, where I rather took a liking to the sunshine playing on the unnecessary but  beautiful Victorian ornamentation on Colonel Crompton’s lamp post. I’ve made a picture from it before (on Day #1665). I love the Victorians’ penchant for over-the-top decoration of purely functional things – just because they could.
