Monochrome Monday

Fern Fronds

Monochrome Monday travels back to a walk around the neighborhood yesterday morning.

I was switching between colour and monochrome during the walk depending on the subject matter.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Under the Sun

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Under the Sun prompt.

Portrait of a Fern

This summer I have been continuing my experiments with using unusual lenses for various subjects.

One set of photos is using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants. In this example I used the 7artisans 55mm f/1.4 lens wide open to photograph a Fern frond on a walk around the neighborhood.
