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.
