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.

Ivy Leaves in Monochrome

Monochrome Monday travels back to a walk around the neighborhood yesterday morning.

Although I was looking for monochrome images I left the camera set to record colour with the intention of doing a monochrome conversion when editing.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Return

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.


Ivy leaves and Lichen.

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.


Tree trunk detail.

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.


Weekly Prompts: Sepia Ivy Leaves.

A sepia toned monochrome conversion from last summer. I was testing a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a small Olympus mirrorless camera.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown

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.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: At Home

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.
