in the foreground

My father, who taught me photography from an early age, always said that foregrounds were a Good Thing.   As frames, interest-grabbing things, or where the foreground was the important bit, and the background was blurred or in soft focus.

So bearing all that in mind, I dug out the following shots which I hope will illustrate Carmi's challenge this week of "IN THE FOREGROUND"







Not much framing of pictures there!   I tend to focus on the foreground rather than the background.


But I did find one that acted as a frame.   That's on our cruise ship this year and those islands are part of Mallorca as we sailed towards Palma early in the morning.

I was trying to get some drops on a branch yesterday, but my camera refused to give me the macro focus that I wanted. Love that one, also, the last shot is brilliant.

Come to think of it I have a buddleia shot with 2 butterflies on it that would have met the theme.
that last shot is superb.

These are so beautiful, Gilly. The last one is very good, and the island is cleverly framed. I also really like the white flower against the clouds - stunning!

I particularly like the water-on-the-leaf picture.
