Summer Storms

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Weather prompt.

Having had quite a few storms this summer I decided to go with a small selection of storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn and sunrise. At least two of the photos were taken during thunderstorms.

I added some “film grain” when doing the monochrome conversion as it seemed appropriate for the subject.

A Row of Fence Posts

CBWC: Fence Posts

A row of fence posts on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario in monochrome.

Photographed in spring this year on one of the rare outings for my bag of auto-focus zooms. The long end of my telephoto zoom allowed me to compress the perspective of the fence posts.

SITE 5

Smaller than a Bread Bin

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Smaller than a Bread Box or Bread Bin prompt.

The idea for this post came when I was grabbing a camera bag out of the closet.

CBWC: Smaller than a Bread Box or Bread Bin

Back in 2017 I was looking for a smaller camera bag to carry a back to basics kit. A DSLR and three (later four) manual focus prime lenses. This is my Domke F-6 containing my back to basics kit amongst autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula.

In the spring of 2019 I fell off a ladder and messed up my right shoulder. I now needed a smaller and lighter kit. This is my Domke F-5XB hanging from a tripod on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. The bag contains a small mirrorless camera body and three small manual focus prime lenses.

My liking for the Domke F-5XB didn’t last long, the zip closure and lack of a decent sized pocket quickly annoyed me. So I swapped the F-5XB for a Domke F-10 JD seen here in the studio. It contains the same mirrorless camera kit plus spare batteries, memory cards, neutral density filters and one of my quick connect camera straps in the front pocket.

I’m still using the Domke F-10 JD for my small, lightweight kit of three manual focus prime lenses and small mirrorless camera. Here it’s hanging from a tripod on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. That’s snow and ice on the shoreline.

Buff and Black Webbing

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Words starting with B or W prompt.

I was trying to come up with a two word title using B and W while attaching one of my quick connect camera straps to a camera before going for a walk.
