Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Negative Space

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space prompt.

The prompt started me thinking about some of the photos of plants and flowers I have taken using various fast portrait lenses this summer.

That started me thinking about my use of negative space in some of my bird photography.

Monthly Squares

Portrait of Queen Anne’s Lace

This is my day 17 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

We have yet again lost our internet connection, I’m posting this using the cell (mobile) phone as a WiFi hotspot. So I may not be around and posting much but I will try to respond to any comments when I get the chance.

Flowers of Queen Anne’s Lace photographed with a portrait lens to give narrow depth of field and a different perspective on the flowers. Other common English names include Wild Carrot, Bishop’s Lace and Bird’s Nest.
