The Snail

I spotted this little snail lurking on a rosebush.

The Key

Our house, and its attached barns, are well over two hundred years old and appear to have been continuously occupied – or, at the very least, actively utilised – for that entire period. It’s hardly surprising, therefore, that every so often a n ancient and forgotten artefact turns up somewhere.

This old key is one of the latest to appear. If it hasn’t aged well it’s certainly rusted in a visually interesting manner.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Close-ups

Consider The Lily

For this week’s ‘Fun Foto’ Challenege, Cee is looking for a macro or close-up image. Well, here is a look into the heart of a flowering lily. Be sure to keep that pollen off your clothes, because you’ll never get it off.

Macro Moments Challenge #39: Black & White

Macro Moments Challenge #39 looks for something in black & white; or something that is black and white. Either way, I think this fits the bill: a close-up of the characteristic top of one of my small collection (accumulated over a period of more than thirty years) of Mont Blanc Meisterstuck writing instruments.

Like most people, I imagine, my writing nowadays is usually done with a keyboard, but whenever the need or opportunity arises I still like to use an old-fashioned fountain pen. My absolute favourite is the big old Mont Blanc 149 that I bought in 1985. This is a smaller version, sitting in a mug on my desk.

Macro Moments: Week 37 – Water

This unfolding tulip was in a floral display in the town of Confolens that I happened on just after it had rained. As we’re not looking for bokeh this time, I’ve eliminated any background distractions during the editing process.

(I posted a black & white image of the next tulip along as a contribution to Cee’s current Black & White Challenge.)

Nikon D800 with Nikkor 24-70mm ƒ2.8 lens at 70mm. 1/1000 at ƒ2.8 ISO 100. Cropped and edited in Lightroom.
