  1. Gorgeous picture! I must again ask a technical question: how do you achieve the limited depth of field in your shots like this? Is that some post-editing or done with your camera?

  2. Van: I have all sorts of self-composed rules that I created for myself a long time ago and am a real stickler for keeping everything in-camera. I *sometimes* allow cropping if the photo was taken with a digital camera. I am almost never crop film pictures. These are dumb personal rules that I would never attribute to anyone else but should answer where I am coming from technically.

    Anyways, yes the depth of field is in-camera.

  3. Dud you are so wrong. Your nails make the photo. And awww about the ball moss. I miss seeing it. I miss pecans on the ground too. And giant agave. And chickens.
