Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of days to a walk around the neighborhood.
With blue sky and some wispy clouds I thought some of the trees, especially the Paper Birch, could make interesting monochrome conversions if I increased the contrast using a coloured filter during the conversion.
I used a yellow filter to darken the sky for this conversion.
Monochrome Monday travels back to Saturday afternoon. I went for a walk with the camera looking for shots that could make interesting monochrome conversions.
I have photographed Paper Birch bark in the past but not with the intention of doing a monochrome conversion so I chose a section of the trunk with a variety of textures and patterns.
This is my contribution to day 17 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.
These are Birch tree branches being used as a window display on Berford Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

Lines on a section of Paper Birch bark. Or lined paper Birch bark if you prefer.
This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is From An Unusual Angle.
I went for a walk on Sunday morning of week 47 and dropped my fisheye lens in a coat pocket. I had the idea of using the fisheye lens to try to find a photo for the challenge. When I reached the turn around point of my walk I swapped from the telephoto I had on the camera to the fisheye lens.
This is a fisheye look at the trunk of a Paper Birch tree. To fill the frame I ended up so close to the trunk I nearly fell over the roots at the base of the trunk and then nearly hit the trunk with the lens.
A photo from last weekend that I was considering for week 10 of my 52 week photo project. The pattern on the bark reminded me of ruled paper.
I picked this shot for week 4 because we haven’t seen much sun or blue sky since I started this 52 week photo project. It was nice seeing the sun shining on a Paper Birch standing out against a blue sky.
