Embrace the Eclectic 6 - Metal, Wood a and Painting

Saturday, a day to myself. No meal preps, time to go the the Farmer's Market. Time to read, to try out different settings on my camera. Time.

DH picked up some metal/wood great junk this weekend.

Cloudy day. Lots of great texture for backgrounds. 

Setting on camera: 50 mm lens, Manual, cloud, ISO changing between 100 to 400, F5.6. What a treat to play around with settings and see different results.

The drill handle screws off - a place to store the bits.

Used a rusted galvanized oval bucket and a worn out table top as display bases. Slaw cutters and a green tin box for background plus house siding. 

Cornbread moulds - corn and perch.

Learning more all the time. 

Vintage cast metal well rusted iron rest.

A few weeks ago DH brought home this very large painting, a view from Queen Elizabeth Gardens towards the North Shore (Vancouver BC). 
Shot indoors, ISO 6400, F5.6, Manual.

Jon Giesbrecht Photopgraphy has a photo view somewhat similar to this painting, from Queen Elizabeth Park toward the North Shore (row 6, last picture).

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Hi Joy,

    Oh, I love your blue painting. Isn’t it fun finding blue?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  2. CLEARLY you are having fun lately between camera, vignettes etc! :) I enjoyed the last round and this is very lovely as well! :)

  3. Such intriguing old tools! Your photos are just awesome.

  4. So much fun to see the beautiful results when you experiment with your camera. I need to make some time to learn 'manual'. Love the rustic stuff ... DH is a good shopper.
