This lantern adorns the outside parking lot of a traditional and long standing restaurant in Naples - it is a nice contrast to the predominant modern architecture in our locale...and even an interesting difference to the power lines in the background.

We started to explore 'depth of field' and the 'foreground/background' concepts in Photography Club today - a stepping stone to bokeh. This shot portrays that visually as well as conceptually. I like when there is more 'depth' to photographs, but also to other creations, conversations, etc. I like when they make you think - even if there is no answer. And, I like when an image (however ordinary or ornate) makes a statement, thought it may be very personal, not universal. St. George & the Dragon, US 41 E, Naples, FL


  1. Nice one! I like the OOF background and your comment about it - it has inspired an idea for me to shoot when I get some time. Thanks!
