Photgraphy used to be about lighting, in focus, in contrast, in composition. Enter the digital age. It started with Photoshop. But the learning curve was steep. It moved on to camera phones and a million apps that allow anyone, with a simple click of a button, to change the look drastically or artistically or whatever. 
Lensbaby is that and more. It's still about capturing images in the camera. It's tilt shift which allows the photographer to highlight details that matter most and gives an etheral depth to all the rest. It begins at the center for focus and begins the blur beyond that. The photographer chooses. It immerses you in serendipity. Practice is required but then all good things require that. These are some of my first effort. More to come. Which do you like best?

Mountain High

This is a view I never tire of. It just sucks my breath away. It is really beautiful any time of the day but is spectacular at sunset. It is north facing so it collects all the colors of the setting sun but allows them to migrate and change as the sun move to the west. I had fun interpreting this view in cloth.

Oh what a day!
