The Ordinary Maple Leaf

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Ordinary prompt.

I hadn’t given the prompt much thought when I went for a walk around the neighborhood last Sunday afternoon. I set out with a wide angle lens on the camera and a short telephoto in a pocket. I probably hadn’t walked 100 yards before deciding I had picked the wrong lens and swapped to the telephoto.

I should add that it’s very rare for me to take a second lens on one of my walks but I’m glad I did last Sunday. All the photos in this post are from that walk with the short telephoto on the camera.

“It’s All About The Light”

This week Tina gives us the theme It’s All About The Light for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. It’s a phrase that I have used when commenting on photos many times.

A small selection of photos taken on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario over the past months or so.

Out In the Countryside

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Out In the Countryside prompt.

A small selection of photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the weekend after Dale posted the prompt.

By some strange coincidence all the photos were taken with the same camera and lens combination, my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and the TTArtisan 35mm lens.
