This week Ann-Christine gives us the prompt Soft for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
My first thought was of some of the photos I had taken last year when I was experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. Mostly fast portrait lenses but also some CCTV lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.
This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Greenery.
When the challenge was posted on Saturday morning we had had 33 hours of snow and it was still snowing. Various roads in the area are closed as I work on this post.
So I decided to look back at last summer and autumn to see if there was any greenery images I had edited for a blog post and then never used. These are all from my walks around the neighborhood with a camera.
I decided to keep it simple and go with a selection of photos taken on my walks around the neighborhood starting shortly after Ontario had gone into lockdown in the spring.
I then decided to select one photo from the spring, one from the summer and one from autumn.
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky. Taken in the spring after a lot of the world had gone into lockdown. I noticed that the sky seemed bluer, possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
I spent part of the summer experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses when out for my walks around the neighborhood. This fern frond was taken using a fast portrait lens.
