This week Ann-Christine gives us the prompt Soft for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

My first thought was of some of the photos I had taken last year when I was experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. Mostly fast portrait lenses but also some CCTV lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.

Fun experimenting with lenses – and soft, beautiful results. I love fern fronds, but lean towards the cone flowers…all softly reminding of better times!

Thanks Ann-Christine. I suspect that subconsciously my choice of subjects was because I’m tired of having very limited walking routes due to the snow and ice.

Thanks Patti. I briefly considered doing the whole post using photos of the fern fronds. There was a group of them under trees so the light was usually soft and they were a regular subject for the various lenses I was testing. I decided that a set of fern frond photos would be a bit repetitive.
