10 on 10: 50 mm

For the past few weeks, I have been without my beloved 100mm macro lens. It is in the camera shop for repairs. It is the lens that almost always stays on my camera, especially when I am at home and do mostly macro work. I have been feeling at a loss. In addition, I have been working long hours at my job and have not been doing much photography at all. I considered skipping the 10 on 10 blog circle this month (see link to the next photographer in the circle at the bottom of this post), but still, I wanted to participate.

So the evening before our posts were due, I found some time and  decided to take a 30 minute walk  in my local park. I would get all my photos at once and with  just my 50 mm lens (the nifty 50). The mosquitoes were biting like crazy so 30 minutes was more than enough (next time bug spray will be in order).

This is what I came up with on my quick walk.


Please follow the 10 on 10 blog circle, starting with the wonderful Kristina Rust.


  1. I'm so glad you decided to participate because I always love seeing your lovely images. You have such a creative eye and I love all the images you found in your quick walk. I especially love the last image with the sun flare. You are so inspiring!

  2. These are all gorgeous, Bonnie! I love all of them but I'm drawn to the black and white stairs! I like the nifty 50 and often forget to use mine. Thanks for participating even when you didn't have a lot of time to do so!! ;)

  3. I'm glad you decided to participate, all images are awesome! A reminder for us to take a 30 min brake and appreciate our surroundings!

  4. Way to push past your creative ho-hum feelings and make something happen! I especially love the shot beneath the stairs - such yummy light and bokeh!

  5. Very nice images, Bonnie...impressive for a quick last 30 minute adventure!
