The title for this one, The Lid Comes Off, unintentionally reflects how I'm feeling since I took the first batch of photos in many weeks, yesterday afternoon. However, although I was very enthused most were ultimately disappointing. I'd forgotten how unpredictable my camera's focus has become (and I think it's a progressive decline as my admittedly low-end camera ages). What works one time in a particular light on a particular subject, will not work the next time under the same conditions. But I did manage to harvest a few pictures I'm content with and several I will work on later. And it felt quite delightful to work on spanking new photos.

Here's another from yesterday's batch, One Source:

I've noticed, more and more, that I tend to a certain style of cropping, and choice of subject (e.g. flower centers) and colors. So I've been experimenting with other crops, colors, and subjects for a while now. That's how I came to the coloring for "The Lid Comes Off" -- resisting my usual bent for the purple and blue family. (I hasten to add, that I like the dusty pinkish hue.) And though the crop for "One Source" is rather typical of me, in my defense it was the best available given all the picture's givens.
