Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

Thanks Patti. I was originally planning to go with as wide a variety of images as possible until I started concentrating on getting as many S words in a short caption. That’s how I ended up with 3 bird photos.

Well David, you turned a simple challenge into a stunning set of esses! Beautifully done, loved both the images and their well-thought descriptions.

Thanks Tina. I would have preferred more variety rather than 3 birds but they did allow me to get lots of esses in short captions.

Thanks Amy. My original plan was for a variety of subjects but then I started selecting photos based on how many words starting with S I could get in a short caption.

Thanks John. It was a fun challenge trying to get as many S words in a short caption. A wider range of subjects would have been nice but I hampered myself by going with one photo from each season.

I seem to think that there was 25 S words in the short captions although that may have changed due to me constantly editing them until I posted.

I use a range of lenses collected over 45 years. Mostly I use manual focus prime lenses these days. A mix of old lenses from my film era and modern manual focus lenses designed for digital capture.
