I was out for a photo ride last weekend, looking for “broken” homes. On the drive, we passed by this lone cart in a field. I loved the way it stood there all by itself.
This was taken with the Lensbaby Velvet 56. Now it so happens that I love this little lens. Not your typical Lensbaby. If you’re happy with a 50mm ish (it’s actually 56mm) lens on your camera, you really never need to take this one off. At small apertures, it behaves much like my Nikon 50mm. BUT, open it up to 2 or 1.2 (the widest), and beautiful things happen. Also, at about 5 inches from your subject, it’s an excellent 1:2 macro. Love it!
Anyway, back on topic. I got home and began looking through some of the photos I took. I liked quite a few of them, but this one, without a doubt was my favorite. I pointed it out to my husband. He looked at it for a minute, and I could tell that he was not seeing what I saw. So, okay, that’s fine, but then he did the unthinkable! He reached for his glasses. Yup, I knew what was coming, as he exclaimed, “It’s blurry!!” Now really, what defense did I have?? Well, yes, it’s blurry, but not your normal blurry. It’s a nice blurry. It’s supposed to be blurry, and I happen to REALLY love the blurry in this one!
Happy Valentines Day to each of you, and thank you for being here! xo.
