The “Middle Finger” of Photography


When I photograph a cabbage white butterfly on a flower, I know I don’t have much time to focus and get the right light settings before it flitters off. Also on the checklist are merges that interrupt a clear shot. In the example here, the middle of the frame has the distraction of a leaf sticking up. Sometimes processing can minimize the unwanted merge and sometimes, it just is.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
