Portrait of a Fern

This summer I have been continuing my experiments with using unusual lenses for various subjects.

One set of photos is using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants. In this example I used the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open to photograph a Fern frond on a walk around the neighborhood.

Ripples, not a Comet

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #38 Photo Challenge.

Last Saturday I got up in the middle of the night and went down to the local bay to look for the comet Neowise. There was far too much cloud to see the comet but I stayed down there for the sunrise. Then I photographed the ripples around the end of the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay.

Umbrella

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Umbrella.

When I read the prompt I thought of the umbrella on our patio table. We put it in the table in the spring and I don’t think it has been unfurled yet this year.

So I decided to shoot some abstracts of the folded umbrella. I started shooting them in monochrome but quickly switched to colour as I liked the contrast between the blue fabric of the umbrella and the green vegetation in the background.
