Reaching Out (3-14-14 023v2) was just taken yesterday and worked on this morning. It's one of the few in the considerable batch of pix I took that I like. And I've now discovered the disadvantage to a wide angle lens camera. It exaggerates angles at a distance from the central focus of the pic. I also see the advantage when taking landscapes. However, the vast majority of those photos I take are close to at most mid-range shots so this is problematic. I took what would have been a nice shot of the flowers and leaves in "Reaching Out" from a mid-distance, that included the sidewalk, background buildings/windows, and a wall on one side. And due to the wide angle lens, the straight lines of the walk, buildings, windows, and wall were all skewed way out of line. And they would not have been with my Samsung, non-wide angle lens camera. At the very most I might have had to crop the farthest edges and/or tilt the pic a bit. Sigh. Seems I may have to carry both cameras with me. Or just live with this Fujifilm's limitations until I get that smartphone I will inevitably have to get.
Anyway, back to "Reaching Out." For some reason I'm tickled each season by these little blossoms and their leaves, and that "straight laced" grass that grows near them, when they burst forth. There's such a fervid response to the sun, a hunger.
