And away we go again on this shortest, sharpest Dyxum Challenge.
Leading off with the Antipodeans who have a huge time-zone head start on the rest, as well as the luxury of being near our Summer Solstice versus the coldest, shortest days of the Northern Hemisphere.

Looking forward as always to seeing images from around the world taken through an increasingly diverse and exotic set of lenses in their 50s.

The Australians did well to get in before I did . It looks like it will be more of a challenge for me this week than I hoped. We're expecting a lot of rain in Auckland. That's going to hinder a lot of outdoor shots.

I'm already having somewhat similar feelings: I do prefer outdoor photography and the current weather (cloudy and grey) and tomorrow's forecast predicting some rain (and I mean H₂O in liquid rather than more solid form since the temperature is above freezing point) does not look that tempting for outdoor activity, especially as sunrise this time of year here is at 9:16 and sunset at 15:11. And then I have announced that I use various lenses and few of them (LensBaby Composer and Minolta 58 mm f1.2) can be somewhat tricky to shoot... Hope I still figure out something interesting.

@Hezu

Well, I was depending on some natural light for the flowers and there wasn’t much to work with. So the black and white to emphasise the shapes and textures seemed a good fallback.

Hope you get a chance to photograph some outdoor pics this week. Like you, I’m mostly an outdoor photographer and coming up with ideas for indoor shots is a challenge.

First in the northern hemisphere

I also struggle for photographic inspiration when confined indoors and with the rain forecast to arrive before 10:00 and stay all day, I had to get out early. The rest of the week is looking better.

Went out in the morning with the newest acquisition: Meyer-Optik Görlitz 1Q Primotar 2,8/50. My first Meyer lens was the 3.5/50 Primotar and I had been looking for the 2.8 version but only found them available at stupid prices. Yes the lens is rare, but not extraordinary in the optical sense. And so I waited until an affordable one came along and it happened just in time for week 50 2021.

Northern hemisphere weather is always a factor in week 50, as the dark days before Christmas are upon us. At least it was dry while I was out.

Great to see so many enthousiasts this years week 50. Happy shooting you all

I took my chances this morning and cycled for some 70km out the the source of creek Rotte. Plenty of scenic places, but overcast didn't do it justice. Hence, choice is B&W

I've just blown the dust off my Trioplan 50mm f2.9. I'd forgotten how to blow bubbles!

Grey and moist, so the weather was here today. Therefor I´ve chosen as others to go for b/w as there are no colours outside anyhow.

I will use my Sony 1.4/50 mm, Sigma 2.8/50 Macro and the Konica Hexanon AR 1.7/50 mm.

Good light!

However, in my outtakes there is already a B&W-shot.
