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.
A fallen Maple leaf on a weathered limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.
Not a selective colour treatment, the colour and tones are pretty much as they came out of the camera. I used Snapseed to add a vignette and lens blur around the edges of the frame to focus attention on the leaf.
This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Art prompt.
I had photographed various Maple leaves on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood. It occurred to me that there wasn’t many things more ordinary and everyday in this part of Ontario, especially at this time of year. After all, there’s a red Maple leaf on the Canadian flag.
