52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

39. Shallow Depth of Field


The weather has been so beautiful the last few days. We had our first real dip in temperature of the fall season. The humidity dropped and for a couple days I had the slider open during the day enjoying the fresh air. It motivated me to grab my camera and go poke around my back yard to see what theme I could find. I had a lot of “That Reminds Me” moments and loads of “Up Close,” photos because I was playing with my macro lens. I decided to go ahead and use my “Shallow Depth of Field” theme. Sorry, I couldn’t pick just one!

This yellow flower hasn’t bloomed all summer. As soon as we had a couple cool days it just exploded with flowers.
I love this succulent. I had a mini version of it in Panama.
One of my favorite things about living in Florida is having 2 growing seasons for our garden. The cucumber plants are going nuts this year!
The tomato plants are almost as tall as me already! I think fresh tomatoes for Christmas will be pretty amazing.
We have already eaten fresh green and yellow beans twice for dinner!
Yep…. gardening in Florida works for me!

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!
