Trees on Solid Ground

Weekly Prompts: Solid

Bedrock on the edge of Berford Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn.

The trees along the shoreline can’t be growing in much soil.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Solid challenge and also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.

Easter Yellow

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Easter Yellow.

Now I’ll admit that I have no idea what makes a shade/tone of yellow an Easter Yellow but I have recently photographed a few yellow objects.

On a New Adventure

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: New.

This is Dave the Rubber Ducktographer, my new photographic companion. He’s sitting on my olive canvas camera bag pretending he’s on an outdoor adventure. He’s lit with my new LED studio lights.

Plastics

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Plastic.

I had a few photos picked out for the challenge before thinking of different types and uses of plastics. As a result the selection changed three or four times before I decided enough was enough and to go with the current selection.

Weekly Prompts: Plastic

Plastic scissor handles photographed with a fast portrait lens for a very shallow depth of field. I found the shapes and colour combination interesting.

One Word Sunday: Plastic

Reusable plastic water bottles. There’s probably three or four types of plastic used in the different parts. I’ve been using these bottles for years.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Switch It Up

An early Cordura camera bag. In the early 1980s there wasn’t a lot of plastic being used in cameras and lenses. But a few years earlier scientists had discovered how to dye the material known as Cordura. This is my original Tenba camera bag. Made from Cordura and other plastics I still have the bag 40 years later.

Fan Of... Old Fashioned Technology

A selection of plastic bubble (spirit) levels. I have had one in each camera bag for years. Used for leveling the camera I still use one as they’re more accurate than the electronic level built into some cameras these days.
