Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Big and Small

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Big and Small.

I decided to go with two photos, one of a big subject and one of a small subject.

I thought about some of the bird species that have headed south for the winter and that we won’t be seeing again until next spring. Two of those species are Sandhill Cranes and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. You can’t get a much bigger difference in size.

An hour or so later on the same day I was set up in the yard photographing the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds that arrive for the summer. As this bird lacks the patch of iridescent ruby red feathers on the throat it’s either a female or an immature bird.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Rectangular Prism

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Rectangular Prism.

I thought that I would have some fun with the prompt. Here’s a variety of rectangles with the skeleton of a triangular prism above them.

Actually, it’s a local eyesore, a long abandoned grocery store in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. I tried a monochrome conversion of the shot but the colour version makes it look more of an eyesore.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Grin

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Grin.

Now you may be wondering why a section of a mural featuring two grumpy looking men has to do with the grin challenge. I’ve always found the mural a bit grim, it could do with someone grinning.

The mural is on the side of the laundromat in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I think it depicts some of the history of the town. Maybe the grumpy looking men were two of the founders of the town. But surely, if you’re going to produce a mural to highlight some of the history of the town you could have made the portraits smile or grin.

Oh, and the name of the laundromat with these grumpy images on, Sparkles Laundromat.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Magenta Rose.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Magenta Rose.

This photo dates back to the 1980s. I was experimenting with a grainy, high speed film and soft focus filters. The film was Scotch Chrome 1000, as the name suggests it was 1000 ASA.

I added more grain to this edit of the shot before adding a film type border with Snapseed.
