Jujubes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Close Up or Macro.

Jujubes (or Ju-jubes or JuJubes, take your pick) photographed with a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless rather than a macro lens. An experiment that didn’t really work out as expected. The lens doesn’t seem to produce the swirly, streaking corners and edges when close focused.

Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Macro or close up prompt.

Three Maple leaves in the autumn photographed with a cheap 35mm f/1.7 CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I rather like the strange swirly background the lens can produce at times.

Taken on one of my walks around the neighborhood with an unusual lens on the camera.

Ivy in soft afternoon light

This Ivy growing up a tree trunk on the South Bruce Peninsula is a regular subject on my walks around the neighborhood.

Taken on a recent walk when I had a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to the mirrorless camera I was using. I rather like the soft, slightly swirly edges of the frame the lens produces.

Greens and Browns

A fern amongst autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood last Sunday morning.

I was using a 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a small mirrorless camera.

Weekly Prompts: Something New

For 2020 the Weekly Prompts Photo and Word Challenges have been merged into one, the first being Something New.

The something new for me was a different camera late last year. As a long time Olympus user I picked up a small, mirrorless Sony to continue my experimentation and testing of various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.

I’m rather enjoying the camera to the point that if it wasn’t for the bag full of very good Olympus lenses that won’t adapt I would be using it almost exclusively.

Part of the Wiarton Santa Claus parade with the Meike 25mm lens from my lightweight Olympus kit adapted to fit the Sony.
