Friendly Friday: Future

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Future.

This challenge got me thinking about the changes I have made to the camera equipment I use recently. Having had a accident early in the spring that left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm I started looking at smaller and lighter equipment when I got out of rehab.

For a lot of my personal work over the past six months I have been using a small mirrorless camera body and three manual focus primes. I recently added a different mirrorless camera, also small and light. All my manual focus prime lenses will adapt to either camera.

My photo equipment future is smaller and lighter mirrorless cameras and manual focus prime lenses.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting

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

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos I had taken waiting for various birds and mammals to make an appearance in front of the lens.

The following shots were taken in our yard in 2018 when I was doing my 52 week photo project.

I noticed the way a beam of light was illuminating a patch of Maple leaves.

I set up in the yard to photograph birds in the rain. When the birds weren’t cooperating I photographed rain drops.

Simplicity.

Lying in the grass I photographed a Clover flower while waiting for a bird or mammal to appear.
