85mm f/1.8: Beauty in Decay. Continuing with this weeks theme of images captured at 85mm, f/1.8.
As I was walking through a local park, I noticed this little feather which seemed to beg for attention! At first glance, all I saw was death & decay, I mean really, I think that’s probably everyone’s first thought! The more I looked at it, the more I realized it’s just nature doing what she does, making way for new growth!
Beautiful. The leaves themselves are amazing when you stop and look at them, the beauty in the curves, the tones, the details, all the amazing individual patterns/structure! Beautiful. As for the feather…well, personally, it just looks pretty freaking sweet and adds a certain little something to the image. Okay, in all reality, all the same descriptive qualities of the leaves can certainly be added to the description of the feather. It also made me wonder if this is all I am destined for when it comes to bird shots….molted feathers (for those who don’t know, birds just don’t like me and somehow elude my camera and I). 😀
