Photo Monday – Blurred

Sometimes, it takes everything I’ve got to go out and take pictures. I just have no inspiration so I have to give myself a kick and just go. This time, I had to take V to a birthday party in Cobble Hill. It’s a lovely neighborhood, a 30 minute walk from home. I walked around during the party, looking for something to photograph. I was thinking flowers because there are tons in my neighborhood (Park Slope). They’re a bit harder to find in Cobble Hill though. Park Slope feels a little more open and green somehow. I suppose it might be a little less densely populated.

But I did find flowers! Taking pictures of random flowers in planters and around trees makes me feel a little bit less self-conscious about having a camera hanging around my neck. It was windy. Flowers moving all over the place and no tripod. I had to have a wide aperture and next to no depth of field. I did get some fully sharp pictures that I thought I would like. When I uploaded though, it was the blurry ones that made me happy. It’s so interesting how that works, isn’t it? Even with having an idea of what your pictures look like right away, you still can’t be sure of what you’ll like best.

I also seem to be liking yellow this week. I always have such a hard time getting my yellows to look right so I tend to discard the pictures with a lot of it but this time, I just loved them.

It hit me this week how all these pictures make it look like I was in a dreamy garden when all of these were in teeny areas, surrounded by brick and concrete. Like this (okay, so it’s also pretty in its own right; I told you Cobble Hill was a pretty neighborhood!)

      J’aime beaucoup tes photos!!!! les fleurs jaunes sont éclatantes, on a l’impression de les avoir à portée de mains, c’est lumineux et joyeux mais celles que je préfère  sont les photos  des maisons et immeubles en brique de ton quartier, les facades tellement particulières, tellement ouvragées un vrai plaisir pour moi… je ne m’en lasse pas, j’ai toujours beaucoup aimé ces quartiers tellement pittoresques , tu as choisi un bien bel endroit et y vivre doit y être particulièrement agréable. Je vous embrasse tous les quatre, je suis contente pour vous… Bonne continuation.

    That second photo is just amazing! The blurriness really makes the parts that are in focus stand out.
