Since we're still in the heart of summer, I thought I would post a summer flower shot.
And, since we're still in the heart of summer, I think a summer rerun may be in order. And it's not because I'm too busy to create a new photo this week.
I mean I am. But that's not the reason.
It's just because I like this shot, and it hasn't appeared on this blog before. It's a photo that I took back in 2012. I wanted to share it with you, my loyal blog readers.
I named this image "Pink Flower #2" (in that artsy way that some artists name their paintings):
I actually liked this shot so much that it made it into my official portfolio - see the "Nature" gallery. (If you're wondering if there was a "Pink Flower #1", the answer is yes, but it didn't make the cut.)
The positioning of the flowers makes this image work. The foreground flower, slightly offset, is in focus. His buddies behind him are progressively out-of-focus (depending on how far away they are). And the greenery in the background is completely out of focus. It gives the image some nice depth.
