Selective Focus Across The Grid

Where do you want the blur kind sir? That’s the question with my new 17mm tilt shift from Canon. It’s a special kind of lens that came from an equally special kind of couple. I was gifted this lens from Jan and Dennis, which I’m beyond grateful for. You could say I was in a state of shock (still reeling from it) when I opened the box. Dennis and I often discuss the ins and outs of photography, philosophy, politics, pizza, Eggplant Parmigiana,* and Bourne. It’s the lingo of life when working around a coffee connoisseur with yours truly. And then it’s working to up my own personal photography game beyond “that’s nice” to “that was a true to form shot.” Expecting what I know to be the truth from within myself, not from others. In other words, not splitting the difference or settling for less.

I decided on posting two photos taken earlier this morning, both with the tilt shift along an obscure creek where my Starbucks ran dry. One is a selfie where the focus was shifted (still toying with it), while the second was opened up for full detail.


Turning my back on graffiti and facing the snag ahead.

Yes, I’ve got my work cut this way and that way for me. Thank you again, Jan and Dennis.


Detail without distortion.

I’m posting this from my phone so if there’s any errors I apologize ahead of time and will fix them later.
