This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Stylish.
After a couple of false starts to the challenge I thought about my testing of various lenses adapted to fit a small mirrorless interchangeable lens camera this summer.
With the growing popularity of mirrorless cameras it has become stylish to adapt a wide variety of lenses to these cameras.
Although I was testing the adapted lenses partly because I was putting together a compact, lightweight camera kit after an accident left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Open Topic.
I chose this photo because it sums up this autumn for me. This has been a good autumn for colour but with weather or locations that have hindered me getting shots.
This tree was almost glowing in the half light of dawn on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. Unfortunately it’s location is such that it was impossible to photograph the whole tree without including an ugly, distracting background.
So once the sun came up I put the telephoto zoom on the camera and started isolating sections of colour where I could control the background.
This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs.
There used to be a giant Foodland sign on the front of this abandoned grocery store along with a variety of signs in the windows and on the walls.
Now there are Private Property, No Trespassing signs on the building and utility pole. They were put up because some local kids were using the empty parking lot to skateboard on.

This is my sideways look at the A Photo a Week Challenge: Hands.
Having watched a variety of Squirrels, Ground Squirrels and Chipmunks feeding it often makes me think of humans eating corn on the cob.
