Monochrome Monday: 11th January 2021

Tracks in the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

The photo was monochromatic to begin with but I did a monochrome conversion to see how much different the two versions would look. There wasn’t a lot of different apart from the colour original having a colder colour balance. This is the monochrome version.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: At Home

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: At Home.

As I had been in hospital for two days when the challenge was posted I decided to go with a small selection of photos from my walks around the neighborhood in the past few months.

Old Tracks One Way, Fresh Tracks The Other Way

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of days to a walk around the neighborhood on Saturday afternoon.

I noticed the two sets of parallel tracks in the snow and thought they would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From Above

When I read the Cosmic Photo Challenge: From Above prompt it was rather well timed.

I had recently been for a walk around the neighborhood with a camera and had picked up a pocket full of Pine cones from out of the snow. I had emptied my pocket onto the top of a kitchen cupboard to let the Pine cones dry out.

While on the walk I had spotted this Maple leaf trapped in some tracks in the snow. By the size of the tracks and the stride length either a large dog or a Coyote made the tracks.

To continue the From Above theme, while I had the camera set up above the kitchen cupboard I grabbed the nail brush from by the sink. The bristles make me think of bacteria through an electron microscope.

On the Hunt for Joy: Get Outside

This is my contribution to the new On the Hunt for Joy Challenge started by Cee Neuner. The first challenge is Get Outside.

Having been for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday morning when it was hovering around freezing today the temperature has plummeted. The wind is howling and we’re under a snow squall watch so my contribution to the challenge is from yesterday.

On a photographic note, I used my new Sony mirrorless camera with my silvernose OM Zuiko 50mm lens from 1976 adapted to it.
