Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Capital

When I read the prompt for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Capital I had a couple of ideas. I hadn’t decided which I was going to go with on Sunday afternoon when I was doing some table top photography.

That was when I noticed just how many brands of photo equipment used capital letters, or is that CAPITAL letters, for their logos. So a quick and dirty photo session later I have a completely different post from anything I had been considering.  In this case dirty actually means that, everything was photographed “as is” rather than being cleaned up, because that’s the way it is in real life.

Thank you, I hadn’t considered it that way but you’re right. I was doing a photo of 44 years of Olympus cameras when I noticed the various brand names in capital letters.

David, my first real camera was a Olympus .. we became a great team – then I moved over to Canon … and Oscar and I … are a great team at times. *smile – Love your take on the topic. Really do.

I was trying for a different take on the prompt which is why I hadn’t decided which idea I was going with when I spotted the logos/brand names.

Thanks Tina. As soon as I spotted the logos/brand names I knew it was going to be a very different take on the challenge.

Thanks Ann-Christine. I thought it may have been a bit too weird for some people but once I spotted the logos I had to go with them.
