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 rather than a macro lens. 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.
