Photo a Week – Depth of Field

Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week: Depth of Field

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR DEPTH OF FIELD.

 

Before downsizing and moving to a condo, we witnessed the annual arrival of flowers in our yard…a sure sign that warm weather was on the way.

Fun to photograph up close and personal. Depth of field…narrower the better.

First the crocuses, which often poked through the last clumps of snow. Anxious to see the sun. Nestled next to the maple tree. Their purple tips a sure sign of Spring.

Next came the mystery flowers originating from a bag of assorted “no name” bulbs. Which is what happens when you buy from a discount store. Surprise!

And then the wildest of wild…black-eyed susans. So comfortable in our plot of land. Spreading out and popping up in every corner.

Just a small sampling from our previous life…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Field

Here is my entry for this week’s challenge hosted by “Dutch goes the Photo.”

The theme this week is “Field”

As has happened in previous Tuesday photo challenges, one particular photo (35mm) instantly came to mind when I saw the theme. Even after 3 decades, I remember this image. A field of “wild” in the back section of our (fairly new) home’s half acre. We wanted to leave it “as is” for the wildflowers and grasses. It turned out to be the perfect place for a 2 1/2 year old to explore…and collect flowers and, as she called all things growing from the ground, “Natures.”
