Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown.

The first thing that came to mind was a small selection of photos from my various walks around the neighborhood during the lockdown in Ontario.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World.

My first thought was photos of texture on snow but I decided to expand on that and go with a selection of photos taken on various walks around the neighborhood over the past few months.

Windblown snow.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Colour My World

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Colour My World.

After abandoning the first couple of ideas for the challenge I decided that I would go with a photo from each season. I then decided to try to use only shots close to home taken on my various walks with a camera over the past year.

Autumn leaves amongst the Ivy leaves at the end of November. Taken with a 50mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a small mirrorless camera.

A group of Coneflowers in the middle of August. Taken with a 12mm lens on a small mirrorless camera. I was testing it to be the wide angle lens in the lightweight kit of three manual focus primes I was putting together.

Colourful Lichen and Moss on a limestone boulder in early June. Taken with a small mirrorless camera and plastic kit lens it came with. I had only been discharged from the rehab unit for about a week and was still on crutches at that point.
