Patterns, blur

In these not so bright days and with strictly limited daylight time budget for photography, the nearby parks and gardens are a natural choice. Using my primes at wide open f-stops, I always have to translate the image during framing as the viewfinder does not at all show the abstract patterns that get recorded by the sensor. What was first astonishing and then annoying me, has now become a nice exercise in visualizing beyond the image in the viefinder.

And sometimes the pattern of the plant repeats in the flow of the background lines. No, I did not see this before, but I was even happier when discovering it.


  1. From my own experience I believe the dynamics of our creativity is best served when operating beyond our normal comfort zone. To be as a child again and live in wonder at our discoveries — a good situation, yes!? 🙂
