On the Hunt for Joy: Put Your Collections on Display

I have collected various things over the years so when I read Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Your Collections on Display prompt I had several ideas for a post.

Then I got thinking of a recent blog post about my 44 years of using Olympus cameras. Which then got me thinking about the collection of manual focus prime lenses I have built up over those 44 years.

 

On the Hunt for Joy: Put Your Collections on Display

44 years of Olympus cameras ranging from the OM1 I purchased in 1976 to the OM-D E-M10 Mark II I purchased last year.

44 years of manual focus prime lenses ranging from the silvernose OM Zuiko 50mm lens that went with the OM1 in 1976 to the 7artisans 55mm lens I added to my lightweight kit of three manual focus primes last year. This is a little over half of the collection, my table top set up isn’t big enough for everything.

Monochrome Monday

Old Tracks One Way, Fresh Tracks The Other Way

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of days to a walk around the neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.

I noticed the two sets of parallel tracks in the snow and thought they would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Set in Stone

I had a couple of ideas for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Set in Stone.

Then on Sunday morning I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise and forgot the ideas I had been considering. I discovered that some of the boulders along the shoreline were heavily encrusted in ice from the waves breaking over them.

So rather than Set in Stone these are Stones Set in Ice.

I didn’t notice the two black eyes and little button nose until I was editing the photo.
