A Harmonious Illusion
My family & I went out for the day, to visit with my in-laws. We were outside most of the day. Every so often I would sneak away, and snap a few photos.
Dusk was creeping up quick, I had only about 30 more minutes left of sunlight. The adults & kids were wrapping up their game of football, and I stepped into the backyard to take a few more photos before we headed home.
I was actually planning on taking a few photos of the garden. I laid down in the grass, and started to adjust the settings on my Nikon. I was being eaten alive by gnats, so I wanted to hurry it up. I snapped a few photos of the garden. Right before I stood up, I decided to snap a couple pictures of the grass right down in front of me.
I was happy with the focus, the lighting, and the bokeh in this
photo. I did some minor editing, and adjusted the colors a bit.
This photograph makes me think, "calm". Yet in this day & age with everything going on in our world, 'calm' is the furthest thing from reality. Which is why I call this Harmonious Illusions.
