What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was the windmill at Cley next the Sea in Norfolk.

The light was fading rapidly and unfortunately my tripod was packed underneath everything else in the boot of the car so I had to rely on the 18-55’s Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) and a high ISO to get any image at all…

What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

Four years ago it was this sorry specimen… A Ford Thames 300E van seemingly abandoned in a field.

The Ford Thames 300E was derived from the Anglia/Prefect 100E saloon car and shared its 1172cc side valve engine. Almost 197,000 were produced between July 1954 and April 1961, its replacement, the Thames 307E (based on the Anglia 105E saloon) was introduced in the following June.
