An afternoon walk, 18th June

I have physiotherapy on Tuesday and Friday mornings. As the weather was nice I decided to go for a walk with the camera on Tuesday afternoon to continue exercising my leg and arm.

For the walk I used my oldest lens, an Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 I purchased with an Olympus OM1 in 1976. I also decided to keep the lens set at its maximum aperture, f/1.8, for all the shots.

The lens is one of the early OM system lenses know as silvernose (or silver nose depending on the reference) because they have a shiny brushed aluminium front on the filter mount. They’re often single coated rather than the multi coating used on modern lenses. My copy of the lens has had a hard life over the years, it was once submerged in Georgian Bay and dried out in an oven.

Some interesting variegated Hosta leaves.

A small group of Dandelion seed heads. I didn’t spot the falling seed until I posted the photo on Instagram a day later.

Heed the advice of the physiotherapist and use the cane. Time heals and you must be patient to give it time and not overdo things. I speak from experience thinking I am a heroine of sorts but end up hurting self more and come next month I will need to be back in hospital to sort out my spine. So, do take care and blessings for a speedy recovery 🙂
