One Image/One Story

This week Ann-Christine has given us the prompt One Image/One Story for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

After some thought I drew up a shortlist of around ten images/situations. I then whittled the list down to four.

Tuesday Photo Challeng - Number

15 hours down, 9 to go. A dawn pit stop on Sunday morning for Team Bike during the 1982 Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race in France.

Is this the new universal litter? Has the disposable facemask replaced the plastic water bottle as the universal piece of litter? Photographed recently on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline.

Peeping at the photographer. A summer plumage male American Goldfinch peeps around a fence post near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada. The old license plate is being used to stop the fence post splitting further.

On the Hunt for Joy: Put Your Collections on Display

45 years using Olympus cameras. A selection of the Olympus cameras I have owned and used over the years. Having got interested in photography in the mid 1970s I purchased my first Olympus camera in 1976. Taken with a Sony mirrorless camera after I became unhappy with the direction Olympus were taking with their camera design.

Motion and Movement

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Weird and Wonderful prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before realising that two of them involved motion blur and intentional camera movement.

So I decided to go with a small selection of motion blur and intentional camera movement shots.

One Word Sunday: Count

Intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.
