Day #307

Day #307Title: Tales From The Reading Room
Location: Cambridgeshire
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Extras: Tripod / Wireless Remote
Notes: Today I travelled to Cambridgeshire to stay with one of my oldest friends for a few days. We met aged 11 at secondary school, and have been friends ever since. We don’t see each other that often these days, but when we do (or call on the phone), we pick up the conversation just where we last left off! Victoria is a book lover and writes about literature at her blog, Tales From The Reading Room. Here you can see us relaxing on the new sofa, discussing books, life and other stuff.

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!).

Notes: Today was day 2 of the drive up to our cottage accommodation just outside Glasgow, which myself and four colleagues will call home from home for the next month while we are working on the Scottish Referendum programme.
