Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Around the Neighbourhood

…thanks to Travels and Trifles for hosting this Weekly Photo Challenge

Most of my photos are of the neighbourhood. It’s not the nicest time of year so some of my photos for this post are from various times throughout the year.

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge – Close-up

….thanks to Lens-Artist Photo Challenge for this week’s theme

Yesterday I went to the Toronto Zoo and took my Panasonic Lumix camera with the wide angle lens. I had a little bit of difficulty with the settings but I did manage to get some interesting close-ups of some of the animals.P1070440

Lens Artist Photo Challenge – Action (in the Sky)

….thanks to Pilot Fish for this week’s challenge prompt ‘Action’

I’ve wanted to share more of my photos from the Air Show that I watched from the park at the bottom of my street. It’s nice that I can combine a post that I was going to do with a new challenge.

I found taking photos of soaring jets against a grey sky very tricky. Firstly it was difficult locating the moving planes with my zoom lens and than getting them in the frame was a challenge. Eventually I figured out how to find them and centre them  (enough to crop them later). Most of these shots were the last ones on the camera.fullsizeoutput_712e
