Past Squares #20

January Squares: Sidelight

January Squares: 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 Words containing Light Squares Month and is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Starting with the Letter – S

This week Patti gave use the prompt Subjects Starting with the Letter – S for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I quickly had a long list of ideas for the challenge and was considering a couple of different themes to build a post around.

When I realised that one set of three photos were taken in different seasons I decided to go with a set of four photos, one from each season.

January Squares: Flashlight

A bit of a cheat, as a Brit I’ve always called them torches but if you say torch to someone in North America they think of mobs with pitchforks and flaming torches.

For day nine of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge I went with a flashlight.

This is a small flashlight clipped to the strap of a camera bag. I keep one clipped to the strap of each of the bags I use regularly. They’re useful for finding my way when heading out an hour or so before sunrise. Then when I get to a location in the dark I can unclip it from the bag if I need to check something in the dark.

January Squares: Christmas-lights

I thought that I should use my Christmas lights square early in the month before we get to far from Christmas.

So here’s day three for Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and my second cheat using a hyphen.
