More Photos about Death and Transformation
I set out yesterday to shoot more golden leaves. The Cousins River Marsh on the border between Freeport and Yarmouth has some tremendous foliage and beautiful marsh grasses, and I was hoping to get some photos of that. Alas, I couldn’t figure out how to get to a place where I could shoot. The Interstate has a beautiful view, but stopping there didn’t seem prudent.
I did find a nice old cemetery while I was looking. I went down the bank behind it to get to the marsh, but the views there weren’t the same, and I didn’t have the time or the proper footwear to go mucking about to get better views. So I took some shots in the cemetery instead. There are lots of leaning stones, and a few that have toppled and started to be swallowed by the earth, so it was tough to get a photo with many markers in it. Even the cemetery has a life cycle, it appears.
I was taking photos of leaves using the macro setting on my camera. I decided to try a shot using the macro setting but with nothing to focus on. I liked the result below. We call this “bokeh.”
