Everyday Objects

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #111: Everyday Objects.

I had a couple of ideas for this challenge, one of which stood out. Then when I started picking photos for this post I changed my plan completely.

Some unusual perspectives on everyday objects taken in the last six months.

Creativity in the Time of Covid

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creativity in the Time of Covid prompt.

I decided to keep it simple and go with a small selection of photos taken during my time in lockdown.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Mix Play with Everyday
Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. I used the live composite setting on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. All my sunrise and sunset locations were closed so I set up in a gap in the trees around the yard.
Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula. I was going for regular walks around the neighborhood. Sometimes the sky seemed deeper blue than normal. Possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
Wordless Wednesday: 15th April 2020
Close up of a Pine cone. I set up a table top studio and photographed things that I had picked up on my walks around the neighborhood.
Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge: Close ups or macros
Variegated Hosta leaves in monochrome. I experimented with setting my mirrorless Olympus camera to monochrome.

Unusual Perspective on a Nail Brush

This is my day 6 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

This are the bristles of a used nail brush, the distorted bristles remind me of bacteria seen through a microscope.

Umbrella

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Umbrella.

When I read the prompt I thought of the umbrella on our patio table. We put it in the table in the spring and I don’t think it has been unfurled yet this year.

So I decided to shoot some abstracts of the folded umbrella. I started shooting them in monochrome but quickly switched to colour as I liked the contrast between the blue fabric of the umbrella and the green vegetation in the background.
