Variegated Hosta Leaves

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Close Ups prompt.

I spent some time in the summer photographing Hosta leaves growing around the neighborhood with a variety of unusual lenses.

Now and Then

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Now and Then prompt.

It took me a while to come up with an idea for a post in response to the prompt and it doesn’t really show a difference between now and pre Covid-19 days.

I thought about some of the photos taken on my walks around the neighborhood since Ontario went into lockdown in the spring. Particularly the photos of plants and flowers taken with various unusual lenses.

That’s when I realised that I have been using unusual lenses or techniques for an awfully long time.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space

Portrait of a Coneflower growing on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Taken with a fast portrait lens a few months ago and a favourite from the summer.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: One Single Flower

Portrait of a Prairie Lily taken in Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s. I used a long telephoto lens to isolate the flower from the rest of the vegetation growing in the ditch.

Weekly Prompts: Aesthetically Appealing

Portrait of a Fuchsia flower using high speed film and a soft focus filter. Taken in the mid 1980s when I was trying to get calender and greeting card publishers interested in these types of images.

Two Of A Kind #3

Two red Daylilies on the South Bruce Peninsula in the summer. Smaller and more delicate than the orange Daylily that is so popular.

One of my photos from the summer when I was using fast portrait lenses to photograph flowers and plants.

This is my day 22 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.
