Past Squares #1

July Squares: Trees

Trees #11

Trees in snow. One of my earliest photos dating back to the mid 1970s. Photographed in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Sometimes cropped to a panoramic format in the past I was a little surprised it worked as a square. Possibly my first photo to be printed and hung on people’s walls.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Tree Squares Month and is my day 1 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

One Word Sunday

Mobile

I had a few ideas for Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Mobile prompt.

I forgot those ideas when I remembered that it’s the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race in France this weekend.

So a trip to the archives for a photo of Team Bike entering the start/finish straight shortly before midnight during the 1982 Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle endurance race.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 22nd March 2021

My Monochrome Monday post this week is another shot of trees in snow using intentional camera movement.

Taken 10 days ago it will probably be the last of the trees in snow photos as most of the snow has gone after a rapid thaw.

Trees in the Snow

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Hot or Cold Things prompt.

I decided it was going to be an image from my archives. In fact I’m going almost as far back as I can go in my archives.

The original version of this image was taken in the mid 1970s on a Zenit E camera. Those negatives got damaged (or lost, I have forgotten what actually happened to them). So when I got an Olympus OM1 in 1976 I reshot the scene at the first opportunity.

Trees in snow covered farmland in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Whilst Walking

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Whilst Walking prompt.

Taken a few days ago on a walk around the neighborhood. Since then the temperature climbed 15 degrees Celsius and all the snow disappeared.

Paper Birch Bark and Snow

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White or cream colours.

We got up to an inch or so of snow yesterday morning so I had my white. When I went for a walk I noticed the snow stuck to the trunk of a Paper Birch tree. That was my, sort of, cream.

Two and a Half Of A Kind

Two and a half Dandelion seed heads, or clocks as we called them when I was a child.
