(Mahatma Gandhi)

I’ve started my first ever photography studies. It’s always wonderful and fascinating to study something you are really into. And I think it is never too late for learning. Another weekend ahead, I hope you will have a good one!

      1. Yes it is, now leaves are falling down a lot already… but the colours are amazing. I hope this beauty will still last for a while.

      2. The colours truly are great. Jealous? Shouldn’t you be enjoying your Spring over there 🙂 Guess who is jealous here, a little bit 🙂

  1. Nice photo Elina great bokeh. Good luck on your studies. I originally took a course in the 1970’s and found it interesting, and 40 years later I’m still learning. It’s a never ending process but as you say enjoyable if you are into it. 😀

    1. I think photography has changed so very much since your course, it’s great you have the old school knowledge also. I think nowadays it is so easy to find all information on the internet, just it is always more fun to learn in a group and it’s more interactive. And I couldn’t agree more, it is a never ending process. Thank you for a lovely comment Joe, and sharing your experience. 🙂

  2. A lovely photograph with good use of the limited depth of field. Enjoy your studies – and good luck! I love the quote by Gandhi – and so appropriate in this setting.

    I especially like your photos such as this one, with a very tight focus, and have found myself looking at things and wondering how the photo would look if YOU took it! I’ve even taken a few in ‘your’ style (not posted them though). Perhaps, if you get even better via your studies, I’ll pick up your learnings by osmosis? 😉

    1. I am so glad to hear that you like the shallow focus photos. They are my own favourite too. In fact it was the first thing I checked out how to achieve when I got my DSLR camera 🙂 It’s so wonderful to hear that you have found yourself looking at things through “my lens”. It would be very interesting to see your photos, I hope you will post some one day. I think the osmosis idea for learning is fantastic 🙂 Thank you Elizabeth for a heartwarming comment!

      1. Hi Elizabeth! Somehow I didn’t know you had a second blog for photos. That post and photos are wonderful and you can’t believe how happy and flattered I am for having inspired you 🙂 Thank you so much! I’m excited to follow your photography and get inspired in return 🙂

  4. lovely photo and text, thought it was a dragonfly at a glance.
    best of luck in your photography course, always fun to study something you have an inclination and passion for. wishing you a good week ahead.

    very best regards,
