Focus On Focus
Depth of field and bokeh are my favourite subjects. When I saw David’s challenge yesterday I went back to my archive, and found this Nov 2012 album, all shot with a 50mm f:1.4 lens all around my place in Paris, mostly around the Luxembourg gardens. First, a very sharp shot of the Explorers’ fountain in Port Royal. So much water the scene is blurred by millions of droplets frozen by the high speed of my camera.
Cherubs looking towards the Pantheon in the background.
A bunch of flowers works wonders.
One of them had got stuck in the fence of the park’s tennis courts.
Traffic cones. No, we’re not in England. Mostly used to prevent cars from parking on a film shooting scene as there are so many in the area.
19th century building rue du Faubourg St Jacques.
Great photos Yann 🙂
Thank you kindly Andy. Have a great weekend in beautiful Scotland.
You’re welcome Yann, hope you are having wonderful weather in France 🙂
Indeed we’re very lucky this year. Almost one month of summer like weather unabated. Utmost pleasant.
Sounds wonderful Yann 🙂
great photos – makes me yearn for a visit to Paris. enjoy the weekend.
Thanks Clay, this is very kind. True, there are worst places on Earth. Have a great weekend too!
Lovely. I particularly loved the leaf stuck to the fence and the 19th century building. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much
Thank you kindly.
I am a-swoon over your images, Yann. If bokeh ever could be described as “delicious,” I would certainly apply that term to your work — especially the photo of the two cherubs with the barely recognizable Panthéon in the background. The leaf in the fence and the cones are particularly wonderful too; a reminder that a sharp eye (pardon the pun) can elevate even the mundane to art.
That’s very kind Heide. Still got a lot to learn but indeed that autumn series from Nov 2012 was a success. Went to your blog in search of a sequel but no luck. Hope you have time to get back to blogging soon.
I must compliment you on your persistence in visiting my blog for a sequel — and also thank you for your encouragement, Yann. I began working on the next batch of photos this morning so will hopefully finally find the time to post something soon.
Great series of photos! I enjoyed them…
[…] the Antimuseum in Paris (and beyond) Focus On Focus […]
I like your photographs. It’s curious the subjects you choose to shot the camera…
Thanks. I like eerie subjects.
