This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Plastic.
I had a few photos picked out for the challenge before thinking of different types and uses of plastics. As a result the selection changed three or four times before I decided enough was enough and to go with the current selection.
Plastic scissor handles photographed with a fast portrait lens for a very shallow depth of field. I found the shapes and colour combination interesting.
Reusable plastic water bottles. There’s probably three or four types of plastic used in the different parts. I’ve been using these bottles for years.
An early Cordura camera bag. In the early 1980s there wasn’t a lot of plastic being used in cameras and lenses. But a few years earlier scientists had discovered how to dye the material known as Cordura. This is my original Tenba camera bag. Made from Cordura and other plastics I still have the bag 40 years later.
A selection of plastic bubble (spirit) levels. I have had one in each camera bag for years. Used for leveling the camera I still use one as they’re more accurate than the electronic level built into some cameras these days.
