Refocusing can alter one’s perceptions…

On the same theme of yesterday’s post, weeds, the ever present Dandelion caught my childhood attention in the park the other day. Often the autofocus feature on the camera has a different opinion of what the main focus, aka sharpness, should be in the scene. The first image here shows that the camera focused on the interior part of the Dandelion seedhead. This inner focus resulted in an exagerated softness to the already soft, fuzzy seeds.

With a bit of persuasion from me the camera refocused on the other parts of the seedhead, resulting in a more traditional appearance of the both loved and hated Danelion. Like people, one’s opinion and view is all about perception and can be changed. Multiple views are often correct or in err dependant upon so many criteria and experiences and circumstances.
Truth be told, what drew me to spend a few moments observing this Dandelion was the crisply focused shadow falling on a nearby leaf. Sometimes stepping away from a scene provides a new thoughts that yields fresh perspective. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
