Overcast late afternoon by the time I had a chance to shoot, but inspired by dolmansaxlil to try out my relatively new 50mm lens. Enjoyed the interaction with the natural elements...though my attempts are in need of practice. The sienna post-processing provides an additional dimension that helps to allow the blur and focus to take center stage.

The blur between various entities is often a 'slippery slope' when attempting to define and explain the conditions and the qualifiers of a particular concept. Today's presentations to the sophomore Multimedia classes on copyright and creative commons allows for such blur. The emphasis on shared culture is often at odds with the notions of global competition and economic success. Distinctions are not 'cut and dry' but the efforts to truly understand how those blurred lines overlap often takes 'digging deeper' and experiential opportunities. Fortunately, these particular students will have the entire semester to explore and build upon the blurs. Naples, FL


  1. Nice composition and DOF. The monochrome processing works well too!

  2. I love this photo, so soft in the blurry parts. Almost 3 dimensional.

  3. Interesting combination of blur and focus; kind of like life. I like the post-processing as well.

  4. I really like the post-processing. Lovely soft image.
