Flowering Currant by jesika

A welcome sign of spring’s early days, the Flowering Currant with its dark buds opening to a softer and more gentle pink.

I’m really trying to move beyond point, click, hope into an understanding of how & why an image looks as it does. In this instance, I wanted the blurred background and dof(?) so used aperture priority with a low f number.

This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Free your mind – and think.
