Brown leaf

Brown leaf

Sometimes I like to take walks around my neighborhood with the sole purpose of keeping my eyes open for some of the smaller subjects to shoot. Obviously, I love the wide spacious landscapes and attractive architecture, so this serves as a nice exercise in also looking for the small details that I might normally miss when looking to shoot wide. So during these walks I usually just take a 50mm lens with me. It’s lightweight, a great lens with a wide aperture so it’s a very versatile lens that usually serves me quite well in most situations. During this particular walk, I came across this bush and noticed some brown leaves spread across the top of the bush. I decided to focus in on this guy because it seemed so isolated, almost like a lonely boat in the middle of a lake so I focused right on this leaf and took my shot. It’s a fun exercise and something I do quite often. Hopefully I’ll have some more to share from these exercises from here on out.

      Thanks so much onihei! Yes we get a little bit here in L.A. Not as great as other places of course, but it’s something at least. He he. 😉
