Dandelion's Revenge


This photo from last June was taken just before leaving New Brunswick, Canada, after a week-long photo workshop with Andre Gallant and Freeman Patterson. I passed by this field on my first day in New Brunswick 7 days earlier. Then the field was all yellow. I took numerous shots, but I like this one for the bit of mid-ground dialogue between left and right. I'm not sure why, but the house peeping over the treetops makes me giggle. It has hung in my dining room for a few weeks, and I have also come to enjoy the soft focus of the hillside in the far background. At the camera club they complained about both house and background soft focus. They said I should have tilted the camera down and just taken dandilions. Well, I did that too, and I chose this instead.
