Weekly Photo Challenge: FOCUS


pas i ovca_boja

You might have seen this same photo before in black & white, and I’m sorry for showing you the same scene again, but I don’t have a better representative of the depth of field usage among my photos. Β Anyway, sometimes a conversion of coloured to b&w makes a tremendous change, and it can’t be considered as the same picture, can it? The pic shows my toys that are not just collecting dust. As you can see, I do play with them quite often πŸ˜€

Wish you all a pleasant weekend, and to stay focused only on the good stuff!

P.S.S. I must be really tired, I’ve just realised it is not the same pic at all, the hell it is not the same lens :D. Well, at least I am not repeating myself πŸ˜‰

    • Are you referring to my exhaustion? I am not overworked though I worked my ass off this week (which I loved); it is the changing weather, and fits of cold that are killing me – will get better πŸ™‚ I hope you are doing something fun in the fresh air?


      • Lots of rain forecast but I will be walking on the Moors on Monday. Social stuff before then. I will NOT consider the possibility that Autumn is in the air. πŸ™‚
        Relax, enjoy… Paula.


  1. I instantly remembered this photo (even though it wasn’t the same one and this was with another lens! πŸ˜€ ) I prefer the colour version. This weekend will be all about flying, travelling and not having slept enough, so I’m looking forward to Sunday!


  2. Thanks for introducing your toys, Paula. πŸ™‚ Wishing you a relaxing weekend.
    Big hug β™₯


    • I wish I have a real one like Simba, but for the moment this puppy will have to do :D. Have a good rest Sophia and some fun too πŸ™‚ *hugs*


  3. Cool camera work. I can see the blur on the animal in the background. Same way it’s done it on TV. It’s a technical process I never managed. I made a C in photography. I worked so hard in that class.


    • This may very well be your teacher’s fault. Shallow depth of field is achieved with a big aperture and selective focusing. Here I focused on the sheep and left the dog out of focus to accentuate the distance between them as I wanted to convey the feeling of her slipping away. I appreciate your visit and comment. I’ve just stopped by your blog and you strike me as a creative person. Wishing you good luck with your book, Paula


  4. This is such a lovely photo, somehow the sheep looks full of character, and the light and shadows are wonderful. Isn’t it great to play πŸ™‚


    • It is wonderful to play :). You noticed it :). Yes, that sheep is full of character, and is strong-willed too πŸ˜€ Thank you, Seonaid.


    • Wrong, it is not the same pic after all. As I said further on in the text, it wasn’t even the same lens. I first liked the b&w better, now I am more fond of the coloured pic πŸ˜€ Thank you for commenting.


      • Funny how that happens. I’ve got several photos that I have in both color and B&W, and it all depends on my mood as to which I prefer.
