Camera

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Words that contains two letter A’s prompt.

The first word I thought of was camera and it was an easy word to build a post around.

In the end I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken using various camera settings and techniques that show something that the human eye cannot normally see.

CMMC: Contains two A
Intentional camera movement of trees in snow using a slow shutter speed and panning the camera upwards.
Travel Tuesday: Colpoy's Bay at night
Star trails and shooting stars over Colpoy’s Bay at night using the cameras live composite setting.
Monochrome Monday: Fern Fronds
Setting a mirrorless camera to monochrome allows you to see in monochrome through the electronic viewfinder.
Clouds moving across Colpoy's Bay at dawn
Setting the camera to time exposure allows a 346 second exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn

Medieval Steps

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Steps or Ladders prompt.

This is the corner of Eastgate Street and Bridge Street in the city of Chester in Cheshire, England. The two sets of steps in this photo originated in medieval times.

The steps around the Chester High Cross are relatively modern due to it being broken up during the English Civil War. The top of the cross was saved and other pieces were discovered in the 19th century and were used in a reconstruction of the cross.

The steps leading up from street level to the first floor take you to the Chester Rows. The Rows are a series of covered walkways giving access to businesses on that level. Dating back to medieval times little is known about them and their origin is subject to much speculation.

Numbers

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

A variety of numbers taken on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood and edited various ways.

CBWC: Numbers
A warning sign on a propane storage tank. The entire sign is bright red but I just gave the flames a selective colour treatment.
CBWC: Numbers
Site 3 sign nailed to a tree on a campground. As the sign is old and faded I edited the photo to accentuate that and make it look like an old film shot.
CBWC: Numbers
5 A reflective civic address number for an empty lot in the bush. Used by emergency services to locate an address.
CBWC: Numbers
Lots of numbers on a utility pole. Anyone familiar with the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will see the answer on this pole.
