This week we were challenged to post our interpretation of “Careful.” “A photo taken with care, a person being careful, or a task or detail requiring care.”
This is where I confess that I took a photo a few days ago that I totally wanted to use for this week’s challenge. Which means I was going to manipulate the theme (whatever the theme may have been) to fit my photo.
When I first read the word “careful” I groaned to myself. Careful brings to mind yield signs, closed roads, slippery slopes. Not autumn leaves. But, I kept reading and hit the part that said, “A photo taken with care…” A-ha! My loophole!
This photo was taken with care. I knew that I wanted bokeh. I knew I wanted one particular leaf to be the focus, but the entire photo to be filled with leaves. I knew I would pretty much have to get on my belly to get the shot I wanted. It took a few shots, a few adjustments, but I’m happy with the results.
