MCP Project 52: View From Here

Originally uploaded by Teckelcar
It's the eighth week in MCP Project 52 and the theme was "the view from here."

I spied the first crocus of the season pushing its way through the leaves while weeding in preparation for spring. To capture the idea of "the view from here" I laid down amongst the leaves to get just the right angle. I find it is always worthwhile to get to the same level as your subject. and this time was not the exception.

I put the lens right up to the flowers and set my little point and shoot on Macro, thus creating the lovely bokeh in the background. Laying there I fired off about 15 shots. In the end I got about 3 pictures I liked with this one being the best. I'm fairly pleased with the end result.

It's nice to see signs of Spring. In Kalamazoo everything is covered with ice, then snow. It'll be over a month before we see crocus.
