ICM (Intentional Camera Movement)

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: You Pick It prompt.

Shortly before Ann-Christine posted the prompt I had been for a walk. One of the things I did on the walk was continue my experiments with intentional camera movement.

As a result I decided to look back at some of the photos from my experiments with intentional camera movement. Specifically the photos of trees on my walks.

Bare trees in the snow in winter. A photo from about six weeks ago when I was limited to certain routes when out for a walk.

Trees in a mixture of leaf litter and patches of snow. A photo from a few weeks ago after a thaw. The mixture of leaf litter and snow on the ground gives the foreground a different appearance.

Bare trees in early spring. Taken last Saturday afternoon and the photo that gave me the idea for this post.

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.

Silent Sunday: 22nd December 2019

One Word Sunday

Empty

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Empty.

Two empty bear resistant garbage cans on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. The signs are to let the garbage truck operator know that they’re empty, not because the local Black Bears can read.

They’re bolted down to concrete pads to stop the bears flipping them over. The orange pole between them is to mark their location so the snow plough operator doesn’t hit them. Although it looks as if the plough has hit them in the past.

Blue-Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Blue-Greens prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of the Common Kingfisher found in Europe and parts of Asia.

The birds plumage varies between blue and green depending on the direction and quality of light falling on it. Here is three photos of the same male photographed at different times and in different light.
