Past Squares #20

January Squares: Sidelight

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 Light Squares Month and is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Getting Back to Basics: A Splash of Colour In the Treetops

A splash of autumn colour in the tree tops on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood with the TTArtisan 17mm lens on a small mirrorless camera.

Light and Shade Under the Maples

Six Word Saturday: Light and Shade Under the Maples

Sometimes it’s just about the light.

In this case the light under a group of Maple trees around Fairy Lake in Southampton, Ontario. I was surprised by how green the leaves were considering that some of the Maple trees in the area had been changing colour for weeks.

A recent walk around Southampton with just a camera and one manual focus prime lens, in this case the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge.

January Squares: Up #2

January Squares: Up #2

Opened Up all the way.

An ongoing experiment photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. In this case a fast portrait lens gave me a nice soft but colourful background.

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.

The Ordinary Maple Leaf

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.
