i almost didn't do a post for...



...but i figured, so many of my photos lately were taken in nature—outside, at forest preserves or lakes or rivers. even in my yard. it's not like i have an excuse—like i don't have plenty of pictures to choose from to use for this post, right?

i purposefully took this shot so that it would be blurry. it looked so much neater this way through the view finder than it did when i focused on it. i'm glad i did. i REALLY like how it turned out. i like the mood. i notice the color more this way.

anywho... happy earth day. i'm so glad there are those working hard to preserve sights just like the one where this was taken—so that i could go and not only photograph beautiful places, but enjoy the fresh air and know that this place will be around for years to come.

Love it. When I don't wear my glasses/contacts that's exactly how the world looks to me: blurry and pretty.

the blur is a truly great effect. i like that you are never scared to break the mould.
