October Squares: Lichen and Lines

Day 6 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.

Lichen and lines in tree bark. Taken a couple of weeks ago. I had worked out that October Squares were going to be lines after a couple of clues from Becky.

I seem to have had a “thing” about photographing Lichen for a while and I found the wet/dry combination of the tree bark interesting.

Weekly Prompts: Sepia Ivy Leaves

This is another contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Sepia which is running throughout August.

Ivy growing up a tree trunk. With the swirling around the edges of the frame you could think that this is an old photo but it was taken this summer with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
