Into the blur

I’m learning how to use my new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L USM IS Macro Lens.  I’m not one for reading manuals.  I’d much rather just “get going”…which is exactly what I did the other day.  I went for a walk around the neighborhood and just began to point and shoot, play with ISO, aperture and shutter speed.  I came back with over 100 photos and quickly realized that most were…out of focus.

But that was the beginning of  a beautiful “mistake”.  I love the way these shots turned out.  The colors, light and shape.  The blur feels ethereal to me.  I’m leaning into the blur…

    These are cool Beth. My fav is the dry weeds/grass. I can almost feel the wind blowing through it.
