This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Vertiginous.
I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before remembering this photo. Taken approximately 30 years ago, I’m looking over a sandstone escarpment down on the Cheshire plain below. The slope is so steep it used to form the defensive edge of an Iron Age hill fort.
This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Empty.
Two empty bear resistant garbage cans on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. The signs are to let the garbage truck operator know that they’re empty, not because the local Black Bears can read.
They’re bolted down to concrete pads to stop the bears flipping them over. The orange pole between them is to mark their location so the snow plough operator doesn’t hit them. Although it looks as if the plough has hit them in the past.
It’s also a prequel of sorts to my One Word Sunday: Smaller post last week.
Large. The very early 1980s and I have one of the first Tenba Pro Pak bags to arrive in the U.K. I can’t imagine ever needing a larger camera bag.
Larger. A few years later and I am looking for a larger camera bag. This Tenba bag is two sizes larger than the one in the first photo.
Largest. Jump forward to the digital age and now, once again I need a larger bag. Spot the bag sitting unseen in this dawn photo. I had changed position on the shoreline and didn’t realise the bag was in the shot. It was a lot darker than it looks in the photo, this is a 10 second exposure.
Small. Three or four years ago I was looking for a small camera bag for a DSLR and small set of manual focus prime lenses as a way of getting back to the basics of photography.
Smaller. Then after falling off a ladder 22 months ago and messing up my right shoulder I needed a smaller, lighter kit while I got a range of motion and some strength back. A smaller bag containing a small mirrorless camera and three small manual focus prime lenses.
