foggy trip to the longwood gardens (lensbaby monthly project)

These were shot with the lensbaby, which is a manual-focus lens that creates a deliberate blur. While it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I am a big fan of this effect. I would love to learn to use this lens well (yes, there is a steep learning curve), and committed to a monthly lensbaby project with some other fellow photographers. As a result, we are participating in a blog circle – please be sure to check out some of the gorgeous images from this month (link below the images) created by others. Thank you for looking!

this final one is a building at the cemetery next to our house. beautiful, and totally creepy!
