Everywhere we went today you could see the moon and it reminded me of the B52’s track “There’s a Moon in the Sky (Called the Moon)”. So much so that I had to listen to it when I arrived home. I had hoped that there’d be some clever way I could tie in the lyrics with this image…there wasn’t 😉

Still, this Morris Minor 1000 we saw near Great Sampford, appears to be looking wistfully to the moon as it waits for the final visit of the AA Relay team.


For those of you not familiar with the whole concept of a 365 project, the idea is that, come rain or shine, I will take and publish at least 1 new photograph per day for a year. You will notice that this is post 001 of 366 – 366, because this year is a leap year so it’s extra special (honest).

The images will be posted here, on my Google+ account and on my Flickr account – you’ll get more here because I will (where appropriate and where taken) include images that didn’t make it to be the pick of the day

So – I wanted a good start and set off this afternoon to capture some of the glories of Essex, as I stepped out of the door the heavens opened…No matter I thought, I’ll go and visit one of the local Churches – I’m sure to find something of interest there. So a visit to Great Canfield Church followed. I dashed out of the car to the entrance of the Church only to find it all locked up…Not to worry, I’ll have a drive round in the pouring rain and see what I find.

I drive through Hatfield Broad Oak most weeks but have never visited the Church so I made my way there – the door was open and in I went. It was dark, very dark. I took some brackets (multiple pictures of the same thing but at different exposures) for HDR purposes and came home, rather wet and not at all sure I’d got anything worth keeping.

So, in true British style, I fell back on a nice cup of tea and a piece of cake. The cake, a Whiskey Dundee Cake was made by my mother for Christmas and is delicious. She told me she had to make it some weeks before Christmas and was worried about it drying out so had added extra whiskey. It hasn’t dried out but it’s not recommended to drive for a few hours after eating a slice 😉
