Yielding control usually helps expand your mind.

As such, this morning about 4 or 5 shots were taken of this flower arrangement. While I had the camera set to auto for shutter speed and ISO, as I was mainly interested in controlling depth of field.

High Command and I had been invited to dinner to our neighbors', and as such, I had bought some flowers a day before as not to arrive empty-handed. My parents taught me better than that!

We had set the flowers in a vase overnight, with some nice crisp water to keep them fresh for the following day. This morning, the light coming through the kitchen windows made for a wonderful play of color and contrast thanks to the cellophane wrapping.

Of course, I had to go get my camera!

HC has taken to teasing me for carrying me the camera wherever I go. Sometimes she even laughs when it's something as simple as taking the camera to the living room while I'm reading.

But... you never know!

Something might be awaiting for you, and I'd rather have my camera handy!

Still, that day produced some other shots, but I kept coming back to this quick series taken that morning.

I hope you've had a wonderful week, and may your weekend be an easy one!

Indeed! I thought I'd be using the f 2.0 a lot more for its weather resistance, but so far it's been pretty sunny! The bokeh on this one was intensified because of the cello wrapping paper I guess... something to keep in mind for later shots!
Thanks as always Peter!
