“I have seen women walk right past a TV set with a football game on and – this always amazes me – not stop to watch, even if the TV is showing replays of what we call a “good hit,” which is a tackle that causes at least one major internal organ to actually fly out of a player’s body.”

– Dave Barry

2009 Challenge 23/365 – Fill The Frame

Day 23 – “Fill the Frame”
342 days to go…

This is an official collegiate game ball – in this case, gold stamped with the University of Wisconsin “Motion W” logo. I used a single overhead lamp for lighting and shot it with my macro lens. The photo is uncropped, in order to be as true as possible to today’s “fill the frame” theme.

HBW – Small Town

A fence lasts three years,
a dog lasts three fences,
a horse lasts three dogs,
and a man lasts three horses

– German Proverb

I regret that I didn’t spend a little more time on this shot. This was one of those scenes where there was some interest present, but I wasn’t too excited about it. I ended up taking a shot for the sake of taking a shot. Looking at it later, I would have composed it differently and used a higher aperture to capture more of the fence posts in the background.

Still, I like the detail in the carved wood fence post, especially with the cracks and weathered paint, and the bokeh turned out kind of nice. So, I’ll keep it, but will probably make a return to this fence to capture it correctly.

What does HBW mean? HBW = Happy Bokeh Wednesday – a term in the Flickr community.

What is Bokeh? According to Wikipedia, Bokeh (derived from Japanese bokeaji ボケ味, “blur”) is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.
