Past Squares #20

January Squares: Sidelight

Sidelight

A fallen branch sticking out of the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. An early outing for my then new Sony back to basics kit that consisted of a small mirrorless camera and three smallish manual focus prime lenses.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Light Squares Month and is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

October Squares: Past Squares

Lines on the Snow

Low sun casting shadows of tree trunks on snow. Photographed on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada in late afternoon. The shadows on the snow reminded me of a barcode.

Past Squares #1

July Squares: Trees

Trees #11

Trees in snow. One of my earliest photos dating back to the mid 1970s. Photographed in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

Sometimes cropped to a panoramic format in the past I was a little surprised it worked as a square. Possibly my first photo to be printed and hung on people’s walls.
