52 Frames ~ Single Focal Point ~ 14/09/2020

I missed last week for various reasons, but back to it this week with the theme of a single point focus, with extra credit for using an aperture of 1.4.

At first I didn’t bother about the extra credit and used my zoom lens on a funny little robin visiting the happy eater tree.

Robin

but then I decided to try messing around with my 35mm which has an aperture of 1.4, and this is the shot I went with in the end.

Counting the ways.

so that’s it for this week.

    1. One of my absolute favourite sonnets, I’ve calligraphied it before but liked it for the photo. Elizabeth Barrett Browning, sonnets from the Portuguese :43.

      1. It’s so lovely! I had this very pretty tea chest and one Christmas when we were short of money I got some parchment-like paper and calligraphied the lines on individual slips of paper with a square of Lindt chocolate in each drawer. I gave it to Tom and he still says it was one of his favorite gifts.😊

  2. It just feels churlish to leave a comment of ‘nope’ on either of these nice pictures.

  4. I don’t understand, but for some reason these posts never show up in the reader for me😒 So…I seek them out myself πŸ˜€ That picture of writing the letter looks amazing, it almost feels like one of those classic movies. Incredibly beautiful! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks Michel, I don’t know why they don’t turn up in the reader, it’s strange as I think they turn up on twitter sometimes. Maybe because the ‘project’ section is different to the blogs. I think there’s a way to follow a project because Pete managed, but not sure about that. It’ll just have to be my secret work!

    2. They don’t turn up in my reader either, so frustrating. I’ll unfollow and then follow again, maybe that helps.

      1. I hope it does😊 It’s strange that only these posts don’t show up for some reason. Typical WordPress problems I guess!πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        1. Apparently it’s because they are like static pages, not intended as blog posts.

          1. If they are static pages you don’t get notifications, that’s true. Oh well, I’m still checking them out regardless πŸ˜€

  5. Gorgorus, Fraggle! Love the Robin and even more teh writing of the sonnet. A poem that begins with the idea of counting, and the desire for description as well as enumeration, that’s wonderful. Have you posted your calligraphied version of the sonnet? If yes, can you please give me the link here? x
