This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Surprise.
Something different from me for a surprise, a post about being surprised by some of the photos I have discovered while digitising my film archives.
When I was digitising some of my black and white negatives I discovered a photo of a camera bag in snow taken in the early 1980s. Shortly after that I was backing up photos on an old tablet and discovered another photo of a camera bag in snow. At that point I realised I had quite a few photos of various camera bags in snow taken over the decades.
I don’t know why I took them unless it was simply a record of the conditions. So a thought a selection of the photos would be a surprising contribution to the challenge.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Opening.
A couple of hours after the challenge was posted I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a camera. Spring has arrived on the South Bruce Peninsula in the past week with lots of leaves opening on many of the local Maple trees.
As a result I decided to go with opening leaves as the theme for my contribution to the challenge.
The different colours almost make the opening leaves look like blossom.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things that are Short.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of my ground pod, a low camera support I use for getting down to eye level with birds and mammals on the ground.
Then I remembered photographing Clover flowers a couple of times when the birds and mammals weren’t cooperating.
