Half-Hearted

May 06, 2013  •  2 Comments

Meadowlark 0044-Edit Today's image is another from Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. The leaf was a small emerging leaf on a Redbud tree shot with the Olympus [email protected] macro mode, f6.3, 1/1250s, ISO400. I was drawn to the leaf because of the light falling on it and I positioned the shot to have the tree trunk as background. With the exposure and shallow DOF in macro mode the tree trunk went black. The leaf stem cast a shadow on the leaf dividing it in half and the shallow DOF caused the left half to be in focus and the right half not.

Given my title of half-hearted many different interpretations might be suggested by the image. Next Sunday is Mother's Day. Like most of us I would somehow recognize Mom on Mother's Day. But I will admit I was not always as attentive in that recognition as what I think Mom deserved. Now that she is gone I have remorse about that. Here is my admonition to those of you whose Mom's are still with you, do not be half-hearted this Mother's Day.

Perhaps the heart reaches maturity at a much later age; we know the soul does :)

Great comments, David. Oh, if only...how many times do we think this for both of our parents after they are gone.
I love all the tree pictures you have sent. How lucky you are to have a place to walk through the reserves of the past and how lucky to have a wife that suggests the walks.
