Raindrops

The weather forecast suggests that we’re in for a prolonged dry spell now, but May was very wet, so the foliage was very green and quite often embellished with raindrops.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Focus

Frank’s theme this week is ‘Focus’. We’re all supposed to try and get our images pin-sharp, apparently, but sometimes a little judicious out-of-focus or bokeh seems to make the focus stand out even more.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Quotidian

For this week’s Tuesday Challenge, Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo! has set the theme of ‘quotidian’, in the sense of the normal everyday that could, in photographic terms, repay a closer view or a different perspective.
