Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lock.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Lock.

A simple photo of a lock on doors securing a bank of electricity meters. The sixth shot taken with a Samyang 12mm f/2 lens I purchased used recently. It’s now part of my retro kit of three manual focus primes.

The camera and three lenses all fit in a tiny Domke F-5XB bag and the whole kit weighs next to nothing. Ideal for resting my injured shoulder. It’s nice if I’m feeling like getting back to basics and shooting like I did as a photography student in the late 1970s.

Quite heavily edited in Snapseed including using the grunge tool before adding a blur and vignette around the edges of the frame. I finished off the edit with a simple white border.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Rectangles.

Something a little different from me this week. As some of my regular readers may know, I fell of a ladder in early spring and spent almost two months in various hospitals and a rehab unit. I’m still having physiotherapy and have limited movement in the right shoulder although it is improving.

This is a section of the ceiling in the room I was in at the rehab unit. Having spent time in four rooms in four different hospitals I seem to think that three of them had these rectangular ceiling tiles. The only difference was the tracks crossing the ceilings and the electronics mounted in them.
