This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Candid.
I considered the more obvious candid shots of humans before deciding to go in a completely different direction.
An American Red Squirrel on the South Bruce Peninsula. One of the squirrels in the area that are so used to me being around that they ignore me allowing me to take candid portraits as they go about their business.
An Eastern Chipmunk ignoring the photographer.
A Racoon that wandered into the yard. It’s more interested in the bird feeders than the photographer.
Day 6 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.
Lichen and lines in tree bark. Taken a couple of weeks ago. I had worked out that October Squares were going to be lines after a couple of clues from Becky.
I seem to have had a “thing” about photographing Lichen for a while and I found the wet/dry combination of the tree bark interesting.
This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Alternative Version.
The prompt got me thinking about some of the photos I have taken when I gave an editor alternative versions. That made me think of one shoot in particular.
In the early 1980s I developed a process that allowed me to produce false colour photos from a monochrome original. Somehow the editor of a book on Influenza research saw some of these and commissioned me to produce one for the book cover.
This is one of the false colour versions I produced from a monochrome original.
And this is a colour shot of the Influenza virus model produced by putting coloured gels on the studio lights.
This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Grin.
Now you may be wondering why a section of a mural featuring two grumpy looking men has to do with the grin challenge. I’ve always found the mural a bit grim, it could do with someone grinning.
The mural is on the side of the laundromat in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I think it depicts some of the history of the town. Maybe the grumpy looking men were two of the founders of the town. But surely, if you’re going to produce a mural to highlight some of the history of the town you could have made the portraits smile or grin.
Oh, and the name of the laundromat with these grumpy images on, Sparkles Laundromat.
This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Stacked.
It’s that time of year when people are stacking firewood ready for the winter although this is campfire wood.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pens, Pencils, Crayons, Markers.
I’m classing sidewalk chalk as crayons.
Spotted in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula a few weeks ago when I was taking shots for another challenge.
