AN UNEXPECTED FOCUS

A Photo a Week Challenge: Unexpected Focus

I didn’t have the right picture for this yesterday, but this morning, I took some pictures that are (I think) much closer to what you are looking for. My orchids put forth another (third) bloom and I focused on the buds rather than the flowers.

I didn’t think I’d like the pictures, but I must admit, they front focus adds something to the meaning of the picture. With the focus on the buds rather than the flowers, the pictures is more about flowers that will come though flowers are already blooming.

There’s one that means “The light from the sun as filtered through a curtain or leaves on a tree.” Just ONE word ๐ŸŒน
