Past Squares #20

January Squares: Sidelight

January Squares: Sidelight

A fallen branch sticking out of the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. An early outing for my then new Sony back to basics kit that consisted of a small mirrorless camera and three smallish manual focus prime lenses.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Words containing Light Squares Month and is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Spring Greens

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My green world prompt.

Having returned to winter like weather for the past couple of weeks there’s not a lot of signs of spring in this part of Ontario. So here’s some recent greens but not necessarily signs of spring.

As a side note, the first 3 photos were taken on two walks testing a copy of the TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4 lens. Initial impressions are good but I need more time than two short walks to get a feeling for a lens.

Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

Weekly Prompts: Greenery

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Greenery.

When the challenge was posted on Saturday morning we had had 33 hours of snow and it was still snowing. Various roads in the area are closed as I work on this post.

So I decided to look back at last summer and autumn to see if there was any greenery images I had edited for a blog post and then never used. These are all from my walks around the neighborhood with a camera.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow prompt.

On reading the prompt I decided that whatever the weather I was going to go for a walk around the neighborhood tomorrow.

As it turned out it was sunny but cold with a wind making it feel even colder. I put a short telephoto lens on the camera and went to see what I could find.
