The Ordinary Maple Leaf

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Ordinary prompt.

I hadn’t given the prompt much thought when I went for a walk around the neighborhood last Sunday afternoon. I set out with a wide angle lens on the camera and a short telephoto in a pocket. I probably hadn’t walked 100 yards before deciding I had picked the wrong lens and swapped to the telephoto.

I should add that it’s very rare for me to take a second lens on one of my walks but I’m glad I did last Sunday. All the photos in this post are from that walk with the short telephoto on the camera.

Thanks, glad you liked them. It’s been a good year for colour but not for the leaves staying on the trees so I’ve been shooting detail and close-ups rather than the trees.

Glad you liked them. It’s been a strange year with some of the leaves changing colour in summer. There’s some good colour but some of the normally colourful trees in the area have been disappointing this year.

As one who lives in the southern US David, I truly miss the glorious colors of northern autumn (but not what follows it!) . Your images gave me such fond memories, and are so well done I could smell the scent of autumn in the air. Beautifully captured.

Thanks Tina. It’s proving to be as strange an autumn as the rest of the year was. Some nice autumn colour in places but some of traditional colourful locations have been disappointing this year.
