Day #300

Day #300Title: Relaxing With Friends
Location: Upper Beeding
Camera:  Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Gorillapod / Wirelesss Remote
Notes: I spent the day photographing more piers on the south coast (Bognor Regis, Worthing and two in Brighton), making the most of the sunny weather. Then I headed to stay overnight with good friends Ken and Carolyn, rather than driving the long slog home by road. As ever, they were delightful hosts. It’s the first time I’ve seen them in person since my workshop trip to Spain back in March, which they lead. We enjoyed much catch-up chat and a glass or two of the good stuff. And as a milestone day for this year (Day #300) it was nice to share it with folks who “understand” – Ken is one of the few of the original stalwarts who started in our 2008 group and has continued with making a photo a day ever since (we are both fast approaching Day #2500 next week!).

Day #257

Day #257Title: Scotland Decides…
Location: High Gavinburn, Old Kilpatrick
Camera: GoPro Hero 3+ Black
Extras: GoPro Pole / GoPro App
Notes: I treated myself to a new toy today – a GoPro Hero 3+ Black “action camera”. I probably won’t be using it much for video, but it takes great stills as well – with a wide angle lens and waterproof housing, it can go places my bigger cameras can’t. I spent a bit of time playing with it once it had charged. This week’s Radio Times provided a topical addition for the foreground.

Day #68

Day #68Title: Taking Tea With Mum
Location: Wivenhoe, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Mini Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: I spent the day with Mum, having a lovely lunch in Dedham and a walk in the sunshine, while Dad was off chasing steam trains on the north Norfolk coast. After our wander we returned home for a cuppa and to watch the England vs Wales rugby match on the telly. We’re on the edges of our seats…

Day #31

Day #31Title: Art Appreciation
Location: Ingatestone
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Extras: Gorillaod / CamRanger
Notes: I enjoyed a lovely lunch with my friend Ann today; we hadn’t seen each other for a while so we had a lot of catching up to do. I had told her that I’m doing an art appreciation course and she has lots of books on Art History, so I was able to choose a few to borrow and read at home. She’s not keen on being in front of the camera, preferring to hide behind her book on Art Nouveau!
