Look closely and the world looks like a different place. A beautiful flower, incredible. At close range, it is otherworldly.
Many people obsess about keeping the subject of their photograph in focus. How every part of the image has to be sharp. How great the bokeh is. And all that stuff. Sometimes, you just have to take a picture that you have in your mind. And if that means the subject is not in focus, then so be it. Is everything sharp? Is that what’s really important? Photography is about light. And a photograph is something that makes you feel something. The sharpest lens on the best camera in the world? No, but I like what I saw through the lens of my camera. Pictures of the setting sun, even when though the sun is not in focus. It makes me appreciate the beauty of the world around us.
Flowers blooming. Birds flying about. And tidal basin traffic. Yes, it definitely looks like spring.
The you realize seeing things in black and white is not necessarily a bad thing. Just ask Edward Weston.
Springtime Flowers. If you look really close, you get distracted by the abstract.
