This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Waiting.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the photos I had taken waiting for various birds and mammals to make an appearance in front of the lens.
The following shots were taken in our yard in 2018 when I was doing my 52 week photo project.
I noticed the way a beam of light was illuminating a patch of Maple leaves.
I set up in the yard to photograph birds in the rain. When the birds weren’t cooperating I photographed rain drops.
Raindrops on a Cedar branch.
Lying in the grass I photographed a Clover flower while waiting for a bird or mammal to appear.
My contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge – Plastic Fantastic.
The challenge got me thinking about what plastics are used for nowadays. That got me thinking about my 12 year old Olympus E-410, a lightweight, plastic bodied DSLR. It was the base model when I purchased it in 2007 but I still use it. I decided to go with a selection of photos taken with it over the past 12 months.

Monochrome Monday goes all the way back to yesterday. I had set up a camera in the yard to photograph the birds and it started raining soon after I set up. The bird’s weren’t cooperating so I started shooting raindrops.
I spotted the lone raindrop on the end of a branch with rain falling around it and took a variety of shots with the plan of a monochrome conversion.
