My January challenge was to take a photo every day using one of my Lensbaby Sweet optics. The shots are all below. Previously I have struggled with the Sweet 80 but during January, I seemed to use it the most.
I did cheat one day and use the Lensbaby Circular Fisheye lens.
As I was on holiday today I had more time to go for a walk. When the Severn is in Flood it is most dramatic at either end of the village. Today I planned to walk to where I was yesterday, to see how much the river had risen and then along to the other end to see what it was like there. What a difference a day makes !
The river had risen so high that not only could I not get to where I was yesterday but I had to double back on myself and take a different route to get to the other end of the village.
Being stuck in lockdown and not seeing friends, family and colleagues makes getting outside for some fresh air and exercise really important. Occasionally I combine my walk with work calls where I can talk and walk at the same time but today I went out at lunchtime and took my camera. The aim was to get a shot for my Lensbaby 365 project. January is turning into a mini project of 31 days with a Sweet optic. Today I had the sweet 50 optic on my camera.
As we prepare for the next storm to approach and are braced for flooding across the country its amazing how much water was around and how wet and muddy the paths are after some overnight rain. I also came across an interesting old iron gate and an unusual sculpture.
