I dabble a bit in photography. I recently learned that the aspect of photography I enjoy playing around with the most is known as “bokeh” which is the aesthetic quality of the blur that occurs in the areas of the photo that are out of the focal point of the lens (which in this case is everything behind the berries).
I find what I enjoy the most about these sorts of photos is how the out-of-focus areas contrast with the crispness of the in-focus images, however I also actually just really enjoy the aesthetic qualities of the out-of-focus areas as well (particularly in this photo).
I miss Minnesotan winters. Despite how harsh they may have been the winter also brought with it incredibly gorgeous landscapes and sceneries that you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
