Sometimes nature is just like this – messy, chaotic, decaying. Still, there are hints of life, and colour and texture to be found. Is it enough for a successful image?

Great array of colors and textures, Rare.

Brownie Day:

The very first camera I was ever allowed to use was the family's Kodak Brownie, on a school outing. I'm not sure which Brownie model it was, but it likely had a simple meniscus lens, well-polished by my Dad's tie. I took pictures of anything and everything (all 12 of them). The pictures couldn't have been very good, because I wasn't allowed to use the camera again (processing was expensive). But I remember how excited and joyful I felt taking those pictures. Earlier this year (pandemically-bored) I decided to try recreating that feeling. I put my Olympus in square format, mounted a cheap Chinese lens that, while vastly superior to the meniscus, exhibits edge softness and aberrations aplenty, and walked around our small town to see what I could see.

I had Kodak 126! Good thing because I didn't know what I was doing. Love these, John B. It is interesting that you chose the square format vs cropping toa square. Excellent work.

More excellent autumn images. I could only see scenes like these in the Haliburton or Algonquin Highlands. Three to four hours away!

Snyder's Shipyard. There is a fence and locked gate on the dock that blocks access to a perspective from the front of the sunken boat. So I tried a multi-shot stitched panorama (handheld).

Our local photo club visited a "traditional farm" nearby last Saturday. The weather turned rainy, but the colours were splendid. The farm only allows 20 pre-booked people on site each morning or afternoon, and was well organized for Covid-19 safety.
