One Word Sunday


Plus Read.

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Red or Read.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge but kept coming back to this image. It’s the Dollar Store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

I do wonder if anyone ever reads the signs other than the Dollar Store sign.

One Word Sunday: Red
Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 23rd November 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a few days to a walk around the neighborhood.

Most of the leaves have been off the trees for weeks in this part of Ontario so when I spotted a solitary Maple leaf a selective colour treatment came to mind.

A group of backlit Maple leaves

Some backlit Maple leaves and another of my tests using various lenses to photograph flowers and plants. This group of leaves were a regular test subject in the spring and summer.

In this case I was using the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.

Squares Challenge

Portrait of Queen Anne’s Lace

This is my day 17 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

We have yet again lost our internet connection, I’m posting this using the cell (mobile) phone as a WiFi hotspot. So I may not be around and posting much but I will try to respond to any comments when I get the chance.

Flowers of Queen Anne’s Lace photographed with a portrait lens to give narrow depth of field and a different perspective on the flowers. Other common English names include Wild Carrot, Bishop’s Lace and Bird’s Nest.
