Day #3566Title: Hello, New Friend
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: So here we are, a shiny new (to me) motor – a 2014 VW Polo in Red (of course). The old car never really had a name, but this one has insisted I call him Charlie as his registration ends with a C. Who am I to argue? I hope we have as much fun together as I did with my old friend.

Day #3564Title: Goodbye, Old Friend
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s a sad day. My old X-Reg Volkswagen Polo has been rather unreliable over the past few months and has cost me quite a bit recently. So I have decided to trade it in for a newer model. I’ve driven over 150,000 miles in this trusty steed, we’ve had some great adventures together. I take it to the garage today and get my new one tomorrow. There’s a strange pang of loss mixed with excitement at new possibilities…

Notes: Alistair and I walked into Chelmsford today to go to the beer festival. I hadn’t been drinking when I spotted this, but thought it looked like a big orange grin!

Location: Borehamwood, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I spotted this cartoon character adorning the side of a sleek black vehicle in the car park on my way to work this morning. Always ready for action, by the looks of it!

Day #3390Title: Dash Cam
Location: Around Elstree, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was on a late shift today, moving the equipment we need for the Local Elections from our technical stores in Elstree to Millbank in central London. This involved four of us loading up a transit van and dragging it into town, then unloading again. There were multiple delays, including traffic chaos caused by a big fire at Staples Corner – not on our direct route, but the knock-ons of everyone else being diverted put us at least an hour behind schedule. This is my view from the front passenger seat of the van as we were finally on our way. We finished at Millbank at just after 10pm and another delay on the trains meant I didn’t get home until just before midnight. All very tedious!

Day #3375Title: Mirror On The World
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I walked into Chelmsford today to run a few errands. The steely grey sky was a good foil for the aluminium skin on the Sally Army Citadel and tree reflected in the window along Parkway. And then a grey car came along too! Perfect.
