Weekly Photography Challenge: Signs

There are signs all over that summer is finished for another year.

One of these signs is the changing colour of my hydrangea.  When the petals turn pink, I know the end of summer is near.  Like the leaves on the trees, they become more saturated as the weather cools.

This is my submission for this week’s photography challenge:  Signs.

Weekly Photography Challenge: An Unusual POV – Flower in a Fencepost

flower-in-a-fencepost

I like to look for different angles when I photograph. I move around until I find a point of view that I like, and more often than not, my favourite shots end up being the ones from an unusual standpoint.

In this one, rather than taking the shot facing the fence, I stood alongside it and used a shallow depth of field to give it that dreamy look that I love.
