More macro, minus the tools

So this morning I thought it would be a great idea to upgrade to the newest version of WordPress.  While it works great, my fancy photo plugin is now broken, so consider this one freestyle.

My friend Charlie has these neighbors.  It’s not so much that they’re crazy, in a medically-diagnosed kinda way, but they sure don’t like throwing things out.  The yard is full of tarp-covered “finds” – it’s all very great depression.  In any case, they also have a great little chain-link fence out front, which they decided to decorate.  With bread tags.  To each his own, right?  Back to the photography.


This one is shot with the same macro lens, but for a different reason.  I really like the blurry look – there is a lot going on in the frame and blurring out most of it makes me happy, which this lens is great at.  The photo snobs call that “bokeh”, which loosely translates from it’s Japanese origins to “some stuff is blurry and some stuff isn’t”.  Anyway, here it is.
