This afternoon I drove over to a local park with the goal of photographing evergreens. The park I visited backs right up to a cemetery, and when I stepped out of my car my eye was drawn to this gorgeous American flag.
I was practicing with my Lensbaby Sweet 35, a lens I was not sure I loved initially, but the more I practice with it the more I love it. (That lens has the ability to easily change aperture, which can be a handy thing.) I often struggle with getting the focus correct when I shoot with my Lensbabies, but today I think I did pretty well.
I knew the shot I wanted to capture as soon as I saw it. I shot three or four different angles, but this was my favorite.
