A Photo a Week Challenge: Anything

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Anything where the prompt is left open.

I have resumed testing various lenses adapted to mirrorless cameras, partly because it gave me some variation in my walks around the neighborhood during the Covid-19 shutdown in Ontario.

One of those lenses was my single coated, silvernose OM Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 lens from 1976.

 

Trees in snow, Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

One of my earliest photos with the lens when it was attached to my Olympus OM1 in the mid 1970s.

40+ years later the lens is attached to a Sony mirrorless camera on one of my walks around the neighborhood.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 6th April 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to one of my walks around the neighborhood. On this walk I fitted an ultra wide angle lens to the camera and was using it for some photos of the bare trees.

For this shot I focused on some interesting bark on the trunk of a tree while having a couple of out of focus Paper Birch trees against a cloudless sky in the background.
