Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula a few days ago.

I decided to resurrect my 12 year old DSLR when going for a walk around the neighborhood a few days ago. I used the camera regularly for years before getting a small, mirrorless camera after an accident last year.

I was somewhat shocked to discover that I had forgotten how to use an optical viewfinder. I kept looking for the histogram in the viewfinder. I was also wondering why the image in the viewfinder wasn’t changing when I dialed in exposure compensation.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Return

I had a couple of ideas for the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Return.

I was thinking of some of the locations I have returned to multiple times. There was quite a list between England and Canada. However, that seemed a little obvious and I have written about some of them previously.

Then I thought about last summer when I was testing various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera. There was a couple of local details that I returned to. One of them, some Ivy growing up a tree trunk, I have been photographing with various cameras and lenses for over two years.

Tree trunk detail.

A photo from last summer taken shortly after getting out of rehab after an accident. I was testing a small, light Olympus mirrorless camera with the kit lens due to the condition of my right shoulder and arm.
