Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background – Cheating With Flowers & Ivy

1 Background DOF

I admit, I kinda cheated for the Weekly Photo Challenge today. But I’m going to blame it on fighting a bad back and not feel guilty.

The prompt this week:

In a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says In the Background.

This is a picture I took earlier this week and I was playing around with using blur to create depth of field. I was actually looking through my poses at the time when I saw my avatar in this stance from this location and just snapped off a few shots. This photo was destined for the recycle bin, but then when I really didn’t feel like setting up a new shoot today, it came to mind.

I’m not sure if I succeeded, but I do like the way the flowers and the ivy frame the shot.

Please check out the comments of this post to see some much better examples of In the Background.
