I had a couple of ideas for the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Return.
I was thinking of some of the locations I have returned to multiple times. There was quite a list between England and Canada. However, that seemed a little obvious and I have written about some of them previously.
Then I thought about last summer when I was testing various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera. There was a couple of local details that I returned to. One of them, some Ivy growing up a tree trunk, I have been photographing with various cameras and lenses for over two years.
A patch of evening sunlight illuminates a section of the Ivy. A photo from the summer of 2018 and part of the 52 week photo project I did that year.
A photo from last summer taken shortly after getting out of rehab after an accident. I was testing a small, light Olympus mirrorless camera with the kit lens due to the condition of my right shoulder and arm.
A sepia toned monochrome conversion from last summer. I was testing a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a small Olympus mirrorless camera.
A photo from last winter. I was testing my Rokinon 85mm lens on a Sony mirrorless camera.
A photo from a couple of weeks ago. I used my 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens on a small Olympus mirrorless camera.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown.
The first thing that came to mind was a small selection of photos from my various walks around the neighborhood during the lockdown in Ontario.
Late March and the sky is already noticeably bluer with so little air traffic.
Some colourful moss and lichen growing on a limestone boulder.
Ivy growing up a tree trunk.
A sign of spring, new leaves starting to unfurl two days ago.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: At Home.
As I had been in hospital for two days when the challenge was posted I decided to go with a small selection of photos from my walks around the neighborhood in the past few months.
Ivy leaves and snow on a tree trunk.
A solitary autumn leaf.
A Pine cone in the snow.
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky.
Old tracks one way, fresh tracks the other way.

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.
