This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish.
After a couple of false starts to the challenge I thought about my testing of various lenses adapted to fit a small mirrorless interchangeable lens camera this summer.
With the growing popularity of mirrorless cameras it has become stylish to adapt a wide variety of lenses to these cameras.
Although I was testing the adapted lenses partly because I was putting together a compact, lightweight camera kit after an accident left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Found in a Kitchen.
I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of salt and pepper. For a black and white photo challenge salt and pepper seemed an obvious choice.
Taken with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open at f/1.2 and then heavily edited in Snapseed. I added film grain, some radial blur with a mild vignette centered around the black peppercorns and a Polaroid type border before doing the monochrome conversion where I added some more film grain.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Squares and Rectangles.
Lots of rectangles and a few squares on Berford Street, Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula. After moving to the area 11 years ago the idea of a smoke shop and pool hall combination seemed old fashioned and now there’s a pawn shop next to it.
Honestly, it seems like the town of Wiarton is stuck in a time warp, going backwards in time while the rest of the county moves ahead.
