Imperfect Bouquet

Highly recommended: Avoid making Macro-shots of hanging-flowers when windy. Pixel-peeping the Featured Image reveals what happens when the breeze blows the vine after the shooter focuses but before he (or she) clicks the shutter. I see but only one petal within the depth of field. Sigh. But the eyes are fooled into seeing sharp-enough photo—long as you don’t zoom-peek.

I used Leica Q2, on Sept. 7, 2020, to capture the photo, which is composed as shot. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/160 sec, 28mm; 9:26 a.m. PDT. Location is somewhere in San Diego’s University Heights neighborhood, West of Park Blvd. The camera sports a Macro mode activated by turning a ring around the lens. The utility is convenient and fantastically functional.
