Past Squares #10

July Squares: Trees #27

Trees #27

The South Bank of the River Thames with a mist shrouded Houses of Parliament across the river in the background on a damp Sunday morning.

Photographed in London, England in the very early 1980s when I was a field tester for a new type of black and white film, Ilford XP1.

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 Tree Squares Month and is my day 10 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Reflected in the Bay at Dawn

WWE: Streaking Clouds Reflected in the Bay

A three minute live composite exposure of cloud moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Taken last Sunday with the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens I have been testing.

Going Wide

This is my contribution to Patti’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Going Wide prompt.

A great theme for me as I have been testing two wide angle lenses this summer, a 17mm lens and a 7.5mm fisheye lens. Both by TTArtisan and recent additions to my back to basics kit.

It’s also an ideal prompt for me to use recent photos as I’ve been trying to avoid my archives as much as possible recently.

A variety of clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario over the past few weeks.

Light Painting on the Shoreline

2021: Light Painting the Tree Trunks

Another unplanned experiment with light painting on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently.

For this version I used a small flashlight (torch) to paint the tree trunks in the foreground during the 30 second exposure. Another test of the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.

This is also a contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere photo challenge.
