Past Squares #10

July Squares: Trees #27

Trees #27

The South Bank of the River Thames with a mist shrouded Houses of Parliament across the river in the background on a damp Sunday morning.

Photographed in London, England in the very early 1980s when I was a field tester for a new type of black and white film, Ilford XP1.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Tree Squares Month and is my day 10 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Eurasian Tree Sparrow

Flora and Fauna Friday: Eurasian Tree Sparrow

My Flora and Fauna Friday subject this week is the Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus). The species is found across most of temperate Europe and Asia.

This individual was photographed emerging from a nest cavity in an apple tree at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England. There is mistletoe growing on the apple tree above the entrance to the nest.

This is also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.

Tree Trunk Details

A couple of close ups spotted on recent walks around the neighborhood.

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

Some lichen growing on tree bark. I liked the way the texture and colour of the lichen almost blends in with the bark.

Ivy growing up a tree trunk. There’s something about ivy growing up a tree trunk that makes me stop and take a couple of photos.

Tree Trunk Details

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: On a Small Scale prompt.

On Sunday morning I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a macro lens on the camera. I quickly found myself concentrating on details of the various tree trunks on the route I picked.
