Friday shoot my town.

Experimenting with shallow depth of field.

Yes these are from the archives and I must admit I have no idea how I did them.
But I do have them to help me compare what I am trying now.
Trying to learn.

Peeling bark from a riverbirch tree.

Ornamental grass around the pond.

Riverbirch tree in the winter.

Tomato vines.

Go here for more Friday Shoot Out.

Fabulous. The first peeling bark shot is pure pleasure for my eyes. Wonderful color, layout, composition and the depth of field works just perfectly.

The week will be gone before I get to visit everyone this week. Love the peeling bark shot, Peggy. So simple yet so effective. Or maybe so effective because of the simplicity? Either way, it's lovely.
