Rows Of A Kind #2

In this case rows of diamonds.

Diamond knurling on a blue anodized aluminum (aluminium) flashlight (torch). The complexities of English English and Canadian English.

This is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

Everyday Objects

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #111: Everyday Objects.

I had a couple of ideas for this challenge, one of which stood out. Then when I started picking photos for this post I changed my plan completely.

Some unusual perspectives on everyday objects taken in the last six months.

Creativity in the Time of Covid

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creativity in the Time of Covid prompt.

I decided to keep it simple and go with a small selection of photos taken during my time in lockdown.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Mix Play with Everyday
Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. I used the live composite setting on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. All my sunrise and sunset locations were closed so I set up in a gap in the trees around the yard.
Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula. I was going for regular walks around the neighborhood. Sometimes the sky seemed deeper blue than normal. Possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
Wordless Wednesday: 15th April 2020
Close up of a Pine cone. I set up a table top studio and photographed things that I had picked up on my walks around the neighborhood.
Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge: Close ups or macros
Variegated Hosta leaves in monochrome. I experimented with setting my mirrorless Olympus camera to monochrome.

Wide Angle Perspective 3

This is my day 27 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my wide angle perspective series.

Looking up at a giant red butterfly garden ornament with a wide angle lens. I like the contrast between the red butterfly and blue sky.

Wide Angle Perspective 2

This is my day 23 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the second in my wide angle perspective series.

Bare trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Although it was the wispy clouds as much as the blue sky that attracted me to the scene.

Perspective on a Giant Blue Butterfly

This is my day 4 contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Perspective.

This giant blue butterfly garden ornament is one of three on trees I walk past on one my walking routes.
