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!

Weekly Photography Challenge: An Unusual POV – Flower in a Fencepost

flower-in-a-fencepost

I like to look for different angles when I photograph. I move around until I find a point of view that I like, and more often than not, my favourite shots end up being the ones from an unusual standpoint.

In this one, rather than taking the shot facing the fence, I stood alongside it and used a shallow depth of field to give it that dreamy look that I love.
