I had just received a new lens with a wonderfully shallow depth of field and it was pouring with rain. I was so determined to make the first image with the lens so I decided to stand on one spot on my deck and find that darned image! As I looked around I saw this beautiful daisy growing on the other side of the transparent, corrugated roof, over our deck. Perfect! I opened the aperture to f1.2 and this is what I found. The rain helped. So, a reminder that photographs can be made anywhere. I was glad I had not done the weeding the previous weekend and noted never to weed again …. On a different level, this daisy showed me tenacity, it thrives in the gutter and shines through no matter how grim the weather. I like those qualities.
