This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New.
I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo taken when I was out with a camera testing my new 7artisans 55mm lens.
I have no idea what the name of this bush is but I’ve been photographing various aspects of it since last winter. The flowers are a new feature.
The remains of seed pods from last year and this year’s new leaves. Photographed earlier this summer with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
The seed pods last winter with my 85mm manual focus prime.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus.
As I have mentioned in some previous posts, I have been making some changes to the equipment I carry when out and about shooting personal work. I have put together a set of three small, manual focus primes and a small mirrorless camera body.
The kit fits in a small camera bag which weighs next to nothing compared to my normal shoulder bag. It’s a lot easier on the shoulder I injured in early spring.
I’m really enjoying getting back to basics with a kit similar to the gear I used as a photography student all those years ago.
Three shots of flowers on the South Bruce Peninsula taken when testing each of the manual focus primes that make up my back to basics kit.
The first was taken with the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open.
The second shot is taken with a Samyang 12mm f/2 lens wide open.
The third shot was taken with the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open.
This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Ignored.
My first thought was of some of the wildlife species that have ignored me when I was photographing them. I thought that idea was to obvious so I watched out for things that are ignored while wandering around Southampton, Ontario, Canada early on Saturday morning.
That was when I noticed people that are probably ignored by a lot of people. Most visitors to the town will never think about people emptying the garbage cans and watering the flower displays.
First there was a council worker emptying the garbage cans on High Street in Southampton.
Then there was another council worker watering the flower displays on High Street in Southampton.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion.
It hadn’t really registered with me until last weekend but there seems to be a new fashion in this part of Ontario, decorating the sides of sheds.
I spotted this shed when out for a walk with the camera on Saturday morning and went back yesterday morning when the light was better. The sun seems to be wondering why it’s sitting in a flotation ring.
