Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Simplicity

When I read the prompt for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Simplicity I had a few ideas for the challenge.

Before I had even started narrowing the ideas down we lost our internet connection for the second time in less than a week. So I forgot about the prompt not knowing when we would be back online.

When I came back to the prompt I ignored my previous ideas after thinking about simplifying some of my camera kit. An accident a year ago left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm and I needed a smaller, lighter kit for my personal work.

So here’s a small selection of photos from the last 10 months taken locally with a small mirrorless camera and three manual focus prime lenses. If I’m going for a walk around the neighborhood I pick a lens and find images with it. If I’m going somewhere in the car I take a small bag with a mirrorless camera, wide angle, standard and telephoto lenses.

Things are a little chaotic at the moment having lost our internet connection twice in the past week. It mysteriously starting to work again the second time it went down so I don’t trust it to keep working.

Thanks John. It was all thrown together in a bit of a rush and then rewritten in the middle of the night and again this morning. We’ve been having problems with the internet connection so I never know if I’m going to have access to the web at the moment.

Thanks Tina. The shoulder is somewhere between 90% and 95% which is probably as good as it’s going to be. There hasn’t been any improvement in mobility since late last year.

Thanks Patti. Our internet connection has been up for two and a half days now so I’m beginning to think whatever the fault was it may be fixed.

Thanks. I was considering using all minimalist images as well but after changing the photo selection at least twice and not knowing if our internet connection would continue working I left it as it was.

Thanks Ann-Christine. I did consider going with just minimalist images but after two rewrites and losing our internet connection twice I decided to publish in case we lost our internet connection again.

I know. At the moment I can’t go into town to use the WiFi as all the hotspots are currently out of bounds so I was out of touch for nearly two days in total.

Back now, it mysteriously starting to work again Sunday evening. As far as I know no one came out to it, they weren’t supposed come out until sometime Monday. It only worked for just over a day after being repaired after it went down the first time. So I won’t really trust it to continue working for a while yet.
