Macro Monday: 29th November 2021

My Macro Monday post this week is detail of an autumn Maple leaf.

At first the pattern reminded me of stained glass windows and then a Roman mosaic. Now for some reason it reminds me of some form of reptile.

Some Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Let’s hear it for the leaves prompt.

Most of the leaves in this part of Ontario have been off the trees for a while now. However, a few weeks ago I started picking up interesting leaves with the intention of doing some table top studio photos using them. The fallen leaves have been buried under snow a few times since I started collecting them.

A Day of My Week

This week Amy has given us the prompt A Day of My Week for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had the idea of putting together a small camera kit and using it for everything I photographed on Sunday.

I put the kit together on Saturday evening only to change my mind and put a different kit together early Sunday morning before heading down to the local bay for the sunrise.

The kit I used was a small mirrorless Sony and four manual focus prime lenses. I decided that the post would be one photo taken with each of the lenses during the day.
