Leave-ing

A walk in the woods, as seen through the eyes of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, choosing to heed my call, instead of romping freely through the leaves.

Depth of Field, A Gallery of Favorites

A gallery of my photographs that utilize depth of field to focus on and accentuate the subject.  From macro shots of flowers in bloom, blurring surrounding foliage and contrasting vines into the background, to goldfinch pairs busily attacking a backyard feed, and finally to a hand crafted wind chime, hanging  at the museum in Caguas, […]
