And away we go. I'm just hoping for two Covid lock-down related things - that sometime during the month our 5km radius travel limit will be lifted, and that my new Samyang 24mm f3.5 Tilt/Shift lens that arrived in Australia in early August and is stuck somewhere in Queensland at a mail sorting centre, gets delivered in time for me to use it.

I hope it does Joe! Mail sorting centers have been a source of my frustration as well, but nothing worse than somebody shipping to the wrong house number (item delivered, all parties washing hands in innocence). Got the item in the end though....

I hope to take ownership of a pre-WW2 16 mm film lens (C-mount, APSC at best), a much sought after Hugo Meyer 2,5 cm f/1.5 KinoPlasmat. It will then be my second prime. Bargains are to be had during this Corona crisis (aka one mans woe is another man's dough).

I finally received my Laowa 100mm 2x macro lens a few days ago just in time. Unfortunately, I have problems getting my Meike twin flash to fire

Great start everybody, very different images so far which is the joy of these challenges.

September was very nice month weatherwise here.
Now it's a lot of rain and the first dry day according to the current forecast is the 13th , let's hope they've got that wrong, otherwise it's going to be a lot of indoor macro from me.

After three contributions from 'down under' I'm the first contributer from the old world. Weather can be summarised as autumnal as I went out in the drizzle between showers.

happy shooting all

For all those Northern European dwellers during rainy days. Cities are a streetphotographer best friend in the rain. For inspiration read this interview with Rui Palha https://photography.tutsplus.com/articles/rui-palha-geometry-and-street-photography--photo-10250

Yes Maarten, I see your point. Only my little swirler is not particularly suited for that kind of thing.

Great interview, thanks for the link Maarten. Maybe I'll try and catch a tram to Antwerp one of these days and see what it gives. I like how he uses the architecture and pavement patterns in his shots.

It might be interesting to find out what people photograph when it is raining...

Anyway, we are go! Sorry for the late sign-up from me and also please accept my apologies for choosing such a boring lens (classic Sony AF 50/1.4). But, it is small and compact
