A New Lens

This is my contribution to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New prompt.

This is my latest unusual lens. A tiny 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I purchased it to replace one that the focusing mechanism keeps jamming on.

Photographed using a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I used my new LED studio lights with a red filter on one of the lights.

2020: It’s A Small World

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: It’s A Small World prompt.

I’m using the prompt to look back at some of my close up photos from my walks around the neighborhood in 2020.

Wordless Wednesday: 4th March 2020

A Maple leaf on the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood last winter.

One Word Sunday: Fraction

Close up of a Pine cone taken with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. Picked up on a walk around the neighborhood.

Silent Sunday: 9th August 2020

Red Daylilies photographed with a portrait lens wide open. Taken on an early morning walk in the summer.

Friendly Friday: Red and Green

A red Maple leaf amongst green Ivy leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. A sign of autumn on one of my walks.

Jujubes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Close Up or Macro.

Jujubes (or Ju-jubes or JuJubes, take your pick) photographed with a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. An experiment that didn’t really work out as expected. The lens doesn’t seem to produce the swirly, streaking corners and edges when close focused.

Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Macro or close up prompt.

Three Maple leaves in the autumn photographed with a cheap 35mm f/1.7 CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I rather like the strange swirly background the lens can produce at times.

Taken on one of my walks around the neighborhood with an unusual lens on the camera.

Ivy in soft afternoon light

This Ivy growing up a tree trunk on the South Bruce Peninsula is a regular subject on my walks around the neighborhood.

Taken on a recent walk when I had a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to the mirrorless camera I was using. I rather like the soft, slightly swirly edges of the frame the lens produces.
