August 10, 2006

August 10, 2006

My daughter and I were having lunch
when I mentioned that I sometimes hold my camera
at arm's length to take a self-portrait.
"Oh yeah", she says. "I do that too, with my cell phone. See."
Kids! They make everything seem so easy.

Thursday's Transglobal Challenge: Shallow DOF

My camera has no manual controls,
so I almost did not participate in this challenge.
But it is informal. So, why not?

Other's participating who I am aware of so far:
Chris H
Adrian #1
Adrian #2
Susan L
Lisa Marie
J. Scott
John B
John W
Bob F
Nicky T
Scott B
Tim C
Ann LT

I wasn't expecting a call...
...but if she says it's for me...

Can everybody leave the room so I can take this in private?

Great composition. Like the way the hand actually comes out of the picture! GMV.

Really nicely done. I love that we can see the blurred face that is clearly grinning ear to ear in the background. This shot is loaded with energy. And of course, your post processing is an excellent touch.

Outstanding work Dave. Love the composition, framing and DOF. Brilliant work. GMV

It's like she's saying "Hey - that's me too!" And it just goes to show how people can look so different depending on their mood. I really like this - voted.
