Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Focus

~~~~~

A glance out the window on this cold damp Sunday afternoon has provided me with inspiration for this week’s contribution to Weekly Photo Challenge…Focus.

~~~~~

Camellia-1_1859

The first two are taken through a window and while not great shots demonstrate how changing the f stop from 4.5 to 18 changes the depth of field.

~~~~~

Camellia-2_1861

Even the shrub a few feet behind the camellia is out of focus at 4.5 f stop.

~~~~~

Camellia-3_1868

I did actually open the front door to take these shots…

~~~~~

Camellia-4_1870

…so there is no window haze as in the others.

~~~~~

Winter_Rose_1853a

The Winter Rose was my inspiration for this set of photos.

The verandah post is in reasonable focus here…

~~~~~

Winter_Rose_1857b

…but just a blur in this shot.

The Winter Rose is one of my favourite plants.

Tough and always puts on a display during the colder times of the year,

provided it is given shelter from hot northerly winds during summer.
