This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Silhouettes.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge, the first was a selection of silhouettes spanning the decades followed by a selection of bird silhouettes.
In the end I went with a selection of silhouettes from the South Bruce Peninsula over the past few years.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things Made From Wood.
I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of some photos from the early 1980s. I decided to go with one photo from last summer and one from 36 years ago. Both feature some old, weathered and worn wood.
First, an interior of a ward in a former small pox hospital. I documented the hospital prior to the site being cleared in the early 1980s. The site was being developed to make way for new medical research facilities.
The remains of wood piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay, South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken last year, I couldn’t take the shot this summer as the water level in the bay is up this year. Only the tips of the tallest piles are sticking out of the water at the moment.
This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture.
I gave the challenge a sideways look and decided to go with a natural sculpture and a manmade sculpture that wasn’t planned as a sculpture.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Edit.
Normally I try to do minimal editing. What I mean by minimal editing is that I will tweak the colour balance, saturation and/or contrast if needed. These edits are done on a desktop computer not connected to the Wi-Fi. The edits are then shared with my tablet that I use for everything online.
What then sometimes happens is that I will decided to use one of the lightly edited shots in a blog post and end up re-editing using Snapseed on the tablet and then often adding a border to the photo.
Another time I edit on the tablet is doing monochrome conversions when a post calls for a monochrome image.

My contribution to the Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered.
After thinking of some of my weathered photos it occurred to me that I photographed some weathered wood piles sticking out of Colpoy’s Bay in various conditions last year.
