Every Monday I post a photo that is meant to inspire you, motivate you, cause you to pause and ponder, remind you of your dreams and hopefully entice you to act on whatever your goals may be. Photo inspiration for this Monday, July 9th, is from Portland Oregon at the Hoyt Arboretum.
This is a Japanese Hornbeam (Carpinus japonica.) I took this image several years ago with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 (nifty 50) at f/1.8 so the depth of field (DOF) is very shallow and the bokeh (area not in focus or blurred) is so nice.
When I look at this photo it’s like the leaves are coming out of the bokeh as if from a different dimension.
Whatever you are doing this Monday make it great. Happy Monday!
