This week, Nancy Merrill is looking at depth of field as the subject for the Photo A Week Challenge. I have no clue how I get the results that I do. As I’ve said before, I wouldn’t know an f-stop from a truck stop, but somehow the camera seems to know what I want and every once in a while it cooperates. You say you want bokeh. Okay.

Lovely. You camera definitely knows what it is doing.
Thanks, Gavin! It’s a good job one of us does. Thank goodness for digital cameras!
Yes, but I do miss my 24 shots!
Thank you, Ann-Christine!
Lovely images for the challenge! That gray and white butterfly is my favorite of them all.
Thank you so much!
You’re welcome, Sue!
The camera may do the tech bits but the operator chooses the subject and the composition which together produce these amazing and beautiful photos.
Thanks, Marianne! I appreciate you kind thought.
I liked the butterfly and the building best just for the contrast in scale but the whole set was a treat.
Thanks, Tom! The butterfly/building picture was one of those lucky shots that I didn’t even realize I’d taken until I was going through the photo files sometime later. I was rather pleased that I managed to capture one of Chicago’s landmark buildings as well as the butterfly.
Lovely results of bokeh. The butterfly captures are my favorite. ❤️
That one of the butterfly on the flower with the building in the background is just wonderful.
Lovely bokeh in all pics, Sue!!
Thank you, Indira! Probably more by luck than judgement.
Loved all your photos! I’ve never seen a photo of such a humble looking heron!
Thanks, Liz! The heron was the most cooperative bird I’ve ever seen. It was perched beside the Chicago river and seemed quite unperturbed by all the people walking by. Several photographers stopped to take pictures while I was there and it hardly moved a muscle, even when we got up quite close.
Super set, love the Monarch with the building behind. I think you have this photography thing sorted.
Thank you, Brian!
