This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Nostalgic prompt.
It took me a while to come up with a theme for the challenge. Then I thought about my ‘getting back to basics’ project and I had my theme.
A few years ago I put together a kit of manual focus prime lenses to shoot digital the same way I used to shoot film in the 1970s and early 80s. It was a way of getting back to the basics of photography.
Then an accident last year left me with restricted movement in the right shoulder and a weaker right arm and I slimmed the kit down further to three small, manual focus primes and a small mirrorless camera.
One Word Sunday: Pareidolia
A Tree Creature with lopsided ears.
A Rock Creature, being spied on by a Discworld troll?
Being watched by an Ice Creature on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise.
Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s and a pair of Mallard hanging out on the remains of a tree in Hurleston Reservoir near Nantwich.
Another overlooked photo from my slide archives. I find the light rather strange in this photo. The birds and tree stump appear to be front lit while the reflections on the water make me think it’s backlit. I’ve come to the conclusion that the scene is front lit and it’s the angles of the ripples in the water making their reflections appear to be backlit.
