Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World.

My first thought was photos of texture on snow but I decided to expand on that and go with a selection of photos taken on various walks around the neighborhood over the past few months.

Windblown snow.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish.

After a couple of false starts to the challenge I thought about my testing of various lenses adapted to fit a small mirrorless interchangeable lens camera this summer.

With the growing popularity of mirrorless cameras it has become stylish to adapt a wide variety of lenses to these cameras.

Although I was testing the adapted lenses partly because I was putting together a compact, lightweight camera kit after an accident left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down.

I briefly considered going with photos of Woodpeckers and Nuthatches feeding upside down but thought that was rather obvious. Plus they’re doing what comes naturally, there is no upside down to them.

Then I thought about some of the photos where there’s a reflection on water that makes you wonder if the photo is the right way up. At which point I started rotating some photos 180 degrees.

These Black Eyed Susan’s look a little odd.

This coloured section of sidewalk looks slightly strange. It makes me think it’s a ceiling.

This Colpoy’s Bay sunrise looks less odd.

Finally, these variegated Hosta leaves look slightly odd.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Filling the Frame

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Filling the Frame.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of filling the frame with just one thing.

Filling the frame with water at sunrise.

Sunrise waves.

 

Filling the frame with snow.

Tracks in the snow with shadows.

 

Filling the frame with leaves.

Variegated Hosta leaves.

 

Filling the frame with trees.

Autumn tree trunks.
