In Focus | Muffed Target 19

Thursday, March 24, 2011

It seems like ages, since the last time I participated in a photo meme. It feels good to join some fun again. Last night, I actually had another shot in mind. But when I took a batch of shots this morning, the following photo appeared to be a perfect fit in contrast to Thom's submitted 'tree' photo this week. I say both of us gotta learn more how to get in focus, even though mother nature can be hard to beat. LOL

Mr. Hubby had bought me a telephoto zoom lens for my Canon on my birthday, and I had almost no chance to try it out in the hectic circumstances we have been going through these weeks. Therefore it was a nice change to ease my mind, when I went on a little photo hunt around the house.

I saw the man on his bike approaching my position, so I stood in anticipation toward the street to wait for a right moment. But, I totally forgot that I was standing under our Indonesian cherry tree. The naughty wind decided to play with me and began to blow at the same time I triggered my camera button. Getting leaves of a branch right in front of the man's features as result. I definitely would prefer to have less of the tree in focus, while Thom wanted to have more tree in his focus. Well, there you have our contrast.

OMG what a contrast this is. I tell ya we do need to learn to focus better. I love how your tree is prominent and mine isn't because of that dang road in mine. This is just wonderful. :) Mahalo my friend for playing along. Much appreciated. :) xoxoxox

I thought I was alone this week! You are right,it would have been a great shot aside from the leaves... by the way what is the man on the bike carrying?
