Vancouver Island - May 2011
I was attracted here to the different textures present and was able to separate the background with a fairly shallow depth of field.
I don't find perfection in nature is required for beauty...sometimes it actually detracts.
I was playing here with a borrowed lens, an old Nikkor 50 f1.4, for which my camera can't meter. So in bracketing I got these 2 exposures that both worked for me. It also doesn't autofocus, and with my 47 yr old eyes, that's a problem as you can see.
