Friendly Friday: Future

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Future.

This challenge got me thinking about the changes I have made to the camera equipment I use recently. Having had a accident early in the spring that left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm I started looking at smaller and lighter equipment when I got out of rehab.

For a lot of my personal work over the past six months I have been using a small mirrorless camera body and three manual focus primes. I recently added a different mirrorless camera, also small and light. All my manual focus prime lenses will adapt to either camera.

My photo equipment future is smaller and lighter mirrorless cameras and manual focus prime lenses.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Not the Norm!

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Not the Norm!

I spotted this One-eyed Tree Creature on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada at the weekend. After researching the species online I didn’t come up with much information other than that the scientific name for the species is Unumoculus arborcreutair.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion.

It hadn’t really registered with me until last weekend but there seems to be a new fashion in this part of Ontario, decorating the sides of sheds.

I spotted this shed when out for a walk with the camera on Saturday morning and went back yesterday morning when the light was better. The sun seems to be wondering why it’s sitting in a flotation ring.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow.

Having photographed some Black-eyed Susan’s a short time before the challenge was posted I decided that yellow flowers would be to obvious.

As yellow is associated with warmth I thought a winter photo would be interesting. I briefly considered a winter sunrise or sunset before deciding that was also to obvious.

Then I remembered the giant butterfly garden ornaments I photographed on some of my walks last winter. I was surprised that this giant Yellow Butterfly sitting in a patch of sunlight hadn’t headed south for the winter.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Yellow

The new Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge is Yellow.

My first thought was the various species of flora and fauna subjects with yellow in their common English names. I then decided that idea was to obvious before remembering the giant yellow butterfly garden ornament I had photographed on a walk last winter.
