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.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trail

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trail.

As my walks around the neighborhood involve a selection of trails I thought I would go with a selection of photos taken when walking them rather than photos of the actual trails.

Some Dandelion clocks taken on a walk after the challenge was posted.

Ivy leaves and Lichen.

Some Ivy leaves and Lichen on a tree trunk I spotted on a walk yesterday.

Having been discharged from the rehab unit I’m back at home. I’m on crutches outside the house and have limited movement in the right shoulder but I decided to go for a walk with the camera. It’s been a long time since I had a wander around with a camera.

It was the variety of greens in the leaves and Lichen that caught my eye.

Textures in monochrome

The new Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Textures.

Originally it was the subtle texture of the veins of the Ivy leaves that made me think of this shot. Then I wondered if a monochrome conversion would bring out more texture in the bark of the tree trunk.

The monochrome conversion and border was done in Snapseed which I have had on the tablet for some time but am only just getting around to testing.
