Inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Focus


Yesterday I went on a walk around a nearby neighborhood. Late afternoon when the light softens and begins filtering in from an angle. Some call it the “golden hour.” My favorite time of day to catch nature at its finest.

Trees lined the quiet streets, interrupted by flower gardens in varyious stages of late summer wilt. Very little breeze to interrupt my focusing attempts.

I took along my (relatively) new camera (thanks Frank, for the tips on venturing into the digital full frame mirrorless mode!) to have more fun with its macro lens. Good thing I don’t have to worry about wasting film.

My contributions for this challenge:

The first few leaves shifting to fall colors, even though it is still technically Summer.

Leaves that jumped past Autumn.

And some caught right in the middle.

  1. Great photos – I don’t know what that setting is (I doubt my old camera has it anyhow), but you did a great job catching bokeh shots!!! The colors are lovely and the backlighting is stunning!! Nice job!
