Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

A Few Minutes In The Garden

Due to other work and a rebuilding project at home, I haven’t been able to get to far from home lately.  But I was able to spend a few minutes enjoying the flowers in the garden.

Playing In The Park

I had some time while waiting for a family member and, as usual, I had a camera with me. Since I was near Leif Erickson Park and the Duluth Rose Garden, two popular parks in Duluth, I took time to wander around and see what would catch my eye.  The roses are not yet in bloom, but other flowers were and there were other subjects that caught my attention.  I used three different lenses and once again experimented with depth of field and framing.
Later, when examining the images, I decided that next time I will try expanding my focus points to allow more of certain subjects to be in focus.  Some of the flower shots could have benefited from more overall focus.  However, the bokeh is pleasing in some and I want to improve upon the selective focus used in a couple of others.
