Abstract Ripples

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Art from nature prompt.

The prompt started me thinking about some of my photos of ripples on the local bay at sunrise. I had taken a few since people were allowed back down there after the initial Covid-19 lockdown.

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.

Monochrome Monday: 1st June 2020

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

I was struck by the various shades of green of the newly opened Maple leaves. However, it was a grey, overcast day so rather than blue sky showing through the gaps in the branches it was featureless grey. So I decided to try a monochrome conversion using a red filter which increased the contrast between the various shades of green.

I rather like the way the leaves have become an almost abstract pattern with the branches giving a clue to what you’re looking at.

CFFC: Glasses, Cups or Saucers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Glasses, Cups or Saucers.

Having been on a bit of a table top photography kick recently this was a good challenge for more messing around with unusual viewpoints and adapted lenses.

I thought the pattern of rings on this drinking glass was interesting.
