It’s chilly today. Let me qualify that, it’s in the low 50’s, which for me is chilly. I realize that I’ll get no sympathy from those who are bundling up to go out in the snow. When I took a trip to the San Francisco Botanical Garden it was an unseasonably hot day. The Giants were still not hopelessly out of the pennant race and summer vacation was still in the planning stage. Seems like ages ago.
I’m not really an autumn person and I’m REALLY not a winter person so to try to warm myself up a bit here’s a return to the San Francisco Botanical Garden and some intimate shots of some of its beauty.
It was during this photo session that I came to discover that the whole photo doesn’t require sharpness. In fact what’s out of focus can be a colorful attractive focal point.
