Day 111 - Poof
The 100mm macro lens and I had a few bonding moments with yesterday's dandelion this afternoon. Scoping out the best poofy head I could find, I spent a little quality time looking for an angle.
Loved the look of the "take-off".
But decided I liked the green background better. Then I discovered while laying on the ground using my elbows for a tripod, that changing the focal point was quite entertaining.
At first I focused on the outside edges.
And then, I took it to the inside. They do remind me somewhat of a sperm commercial. Yuck.
I laid there and played with the same dandelion head for a long time, focusing here, blurring there... until a greyhound discovered that I was laying in the grass.
End of session, this is all that was left of my dandelion beneath the dancing paws.
