The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #146 – Focusing on the Details

Like all photographers I like to find a subject and get set to take the photograph doing all the usual things which becomes innate after a while. Position of the subject, rule of thirds perhaps, lighting, background noise and all those things that make your photo the fabulous one you want.

One thing I like is after the photo has been taken and you plug the camera in to download and get a surprise to find something else in the image while you were busy focusing on the detail. Lets see what we can find among these photos.

Did you see the insect before or after seeing the Dandelion?

I wonder if you saw the flower buds or the spider or the insects who may not have known the spider was there too first

Was your focus drawn to the flowers detail, the Native Stingless Bees or the tiny jumping spider?

Getting in close to focus on the detail

The yellow Alamanda flower or the Ghost Crab Spider first?

In among the Torch Ginger flower lurks another tiny spider

I was after a photo of the small Billy Bonkers Grevillea flower as the light was so good, I didn’t see the ants

Another ant on a flower that was missed until down loading

Did you see the leaf, verandah boards, butterfly wing or the ant moving the wing?

An ants work is hard going

I didn’t see the Dwarf Eastern Tree Frog as the water lily flower looked so good in the late afternoon light

Who was inside the flower?

I hope you enjoyed trying to find what can be found while you focus on the detail.

Secret

Debbies quotation inspired image photo challenge

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. “                Diane Arbus

I was in a quandary of which photo should I use. I quite like taking photos that aren’t quite right or in focus just to see the resulting image. The photo Debbie used set me on this path so for this post, I am using multiple images as I cannot decide on which one fits the best.

This was my first idea

But when I was looking for the above image I found this taken on the same day191009_blog_challenge_quote_photo_tells_light_sun
Which made me think of some other images like this one170615_blog challenge_focus_leaf shadows
and this one180614_blog challenge_light_water drops

Perhaps I should have stopped at one as the photo challenge is quotation inspired IMAGE

What do you think? Should I have stopped at one? What is your interpretation of the images?

The idea from Debbie at Travel With Intent: Suggestion Only

I love the quote Debbie supplied to inspire –

“To me photography must suggest, not insist or explain.”  – Brassaï

All of these photos are what I saw and they have not been enhanced or changed from the original. I have a folder with quite a few images, some are unintentional and others I have kept because they say a certain something to me.
A footpath. A pity I cannot remember the exact place as I took this in 2012   I like the colours and shapes

This one was deliberately taken. Of course I have one with the ant in focus drinking but kept this photo as it has so much to see
