Roll

Or rather rolls. Various coloured rolls of thread used to make or modify camera straps and camera bag dividers.

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Roll or Role.

Jujubes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Close Up or Macro.

Jujubes (or Ju-jubes or JuJubes, take your pick) photographed with a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless rather than a macro lens. An experiment that didn’t really work out as expected. The lens doesn’t seem to produce the swirly, streaking corners and edges when close focused.

Macro Monday

Jelly Beans

This week sees a return to Macro Monday. Partly due to setting my table top studio back up about a week ago.

I had been keeping a list of items to photograph the next time I set up my table top studio.

On that list was various candies including Jelly Beans.

Curvy Webbing

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Circles and Curves prompt. It is also a continuation of my recent post about my home made sling style camera strap.

Part two gives detail of the webbing loop that forms the strap. This should allow anyone who’s interested to make one for themselves.

This is also my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Sharing as I’m sharing the design with anyone who wants to make one.

CBWC: Circles and Curves

A complete strap in tan cotton webbing. The end of the webbing has been doubled over, sewn and frayed so it can’t pull through the slide adjuster used to adjust the length of the strap.

CBWC: Circles and Curves

A complete strap in black polypropylene webbing. This shows the locking S biner which is used to attach and detach the strap from the camera. The S biner is unlocked.

CBWC: Circles and Curves

Detail of the threading through the slide adjuster on the black polypropylene strap. Rather than double over and sew the end I doubled the webbing back through the slide adjuster. The photo shows the webbing loose so it’s easier to follow. When pulled tight the slide adjuster cannot slide.
