First Shot

Today’s walk was brief, but long enough to say I’d done around forty-five minutes of walking. It was rather breezy and, I’m sorry to say, perfectly sunny. While some want the sun, we photographers aren’t as thrilled about the perfectly blue sky. Funny how that works!

This is a first shot, and I nearly called it “Rose on a Windy Day” as a way of excusing the lack of focus on the complete rose. That would, however, be a lie: at the moment I made this the wind had died down. I was just focussing on the petal in the left quadrant that caught my attention in the first place. Maybe it works. Maybe it doesn’t. It takes me a few days to decide!
