View Master

I have a bin with old cameras, lenses, and filters.  I only sort of knew what was in there, having been given a few over the years, and never having had a close look at some of the smaller items.

Yesterday, while trying to find my Gorillapod, I started opening the cases to see what was there.  I was thrilled to find a multi-image filter hidden in the bottom of one of the pockets, opening up whole new possibilities of surreal images.

I wiped away the dust and held the filter in front of my macro lens to see what it would look like.  This is one of the images I made:

I can’t wait until the gardens are in bloom – so many possibilities!

Fun with Filters

While photographing filters for my “Camera Bag” page, I decided I liked the way the light and colour were reflected on the surface I was using.

So I had fun making some abstract shots using filters, a mirror, and the background (a potted plant).

On a rainy day, even photography equipment can make for interesting photographs.
