How many of you do a weekly (or daily) photo challenge? Here is my submission for this week’s photo challenge from wordpress.

Incidental Imagery

A forming rose bud with a blurred background. A newly planted rose with the background out of focus.

This week’s Photo Challenge asked us to share a picture that is a blur.  I lack appreciation for pictures that are a complete blur, so I thought that perhaps shooting something close-up and in focus with the background intentionally out of focus would suffice.

I have been enjoying the signs of spring in Pennsylvania.  The greenery is a welcome relief from the long period of white and grey during the winter.  This is a shot of the top of a rose bush that I just planted.

The lawn is just starting to turn green, and the trees have yet to bloom.  The cornstalks across the road have long since lost their golden hue.  I love the contrast between the new life of the rose and the dormant surroundings.  I thought the blurred background helped to highlight this.

  1. I like the photo of the “new rose” and the bud. It has meaning to it I think. 😉

  2. I hope you are doing ok Dave! Is everything well? 🙂
