Three sips for you... One, Two, Three snaps for me...

There was an old skit, used a few different times but most memorably in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, about divvying something up between two folks...

1 for you... 1 for me...
2 for you... 1, 2 for me...
3 for you... 1, 2, 3 for me...

These images made me think of that because of how they happened...

I had set my camera down from taking photos of birds and such in the backyard...

My wife was having some sangria...

I slid the camera around, left it resting on the table, and tried taking these photos...

But I was a weeeeeee bit too close as we were at our round patio table and I had a Tamron 70-200 on a full-frame Pentax K1...

It went something like this:

One shot...

Nope - too close to focus...

Moved the body back to the edge of the table...

Two shots...

Nope...

Nope...

Stood the sunglasses up...

Moved the body back so it was off the table but the entire lens was still over the table and the hood was resting on the table and tried again...

Three shots...

One...

Slide backward, rotate, and refocus...

Two...

Slide backward and refocus...

Three...

Time for some sangria!

Now for my little photographic observation - an interesting study in how the change in perspective (distance and focal length - orientation) of each shot so drastically impacts the visual relationship between the bokeh'd white in the upper left of the frame in relation to the sunglasses and bottle. The only cropping I did was very slight simply to straighten up the bottle - so just a small fraction around the edge is cropped to accomplish that.
Just a tiny sliver of cropping just to straighten as I was holding the camera a tiny bit crooked as the lens hood balanced on the table.
