Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Found in the Neighborhood

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Found in the Neighborhood prompt.

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.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

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.

Ivy in soft afternoon light

This Ivy growing up a tree trunk on the South Bruce Peninsula is a regular subject on my walks around the neighborhood.

Taken on a recent walk when I had a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to the mirrorless camera I was using. I rather like the soft, slightly swirly edges of the frame the lens produces.

Red Maple Leaf on Ivy Leaves

This red Maple leaf caught in Ivy growing up a dry stone walk caught my eye on a walk around the neighborhood last weekend.

This was originally going to be a simple quick post but with no internet connection it’s been changed to my contribution to Six Word Saturday.

Sometimes it’s just about the light

Spotted on a recent walk around the neighborhood. Ivy growing over a boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario in some nice light.
