As I was processing these, I was thinking how this set of photos represents one of the central themes or motifs of photos on this blog. They are shots of nature with a shallow depth of field with the focus isolating a detail in the foreground, with lovely bokeh in the background, which nonetheless should help with the composition of the photo with blurred shapes and colors. I began to think of this because this sort of photo is one that makes me very happy. These are a little extra dreamy because I had my ISO much lower than I normally shoot at and it was a windy day. I hope you may enjoy them, too. Oh, and keep an eye out for the serendipitous visit from the bee!
Texas is certainly nowhere near as green as Missouri, but the wildflowers go a long way in making up for that. Every highway is lined with bright yellows and oranges and blues and whites, which show up vividly against the drab, brown earth. I hope to take my camera when I am out riding some time, but when I am on my bike I am loathe to stop. These flowers where just beside my brother’s house. And, yes, even there scaredy old me was on the lookout for rattlesnakes.
