Summer Oasis – Excerpt from a Photo Shoot

Desert Oasis

Desert Oasis

I wanted to share a shot I took on the run if you will. I was in Cave Creek, Arizona for a Father’s Day lunch with my oldest, her husband and my wife. Since I never travel without my camera, no one was surprised when I said I would be right back. A half hour and 70 photographs later, I resurfaced. While the group went shopping, I got a number of “Old West” type shots and then found this courtyard with the trees and plants. The lesson learned here is that I knew my time was limited and the amount of things I kept seeing to take pictures of made me rush. This shot is one of three and they all turned out slightly out of focus on the Bougainville. I remember taking my reading glasses off and on…must have been off at this point…lesson learned! I will probably end up using this as a a basis for a watercolor. I like the color and composition. I was able to get some really great shots that I will be sharing over the next few weeks. Thoughts?

    I love the ‘interest’ of the photo, rushed or not. Such a variety of shapes and colors. I recently started wearing multi focal glasses and contacts. Glad to not be fiddling with the reading glasses. 🙂

        Same with my husband who has now ordered glasses that are progressive but clear at the top. He’s going to give that a try. 🙂

        I did give in and get “computer glasses” which are progressive reading at bottom…computer distance in the middle and clear on top…work great with my time behind the computer screen.

        Yes that sounds similar. At least it will help him at his work. 🙂 At home we have the decor of the middle aged empty nesters with a pair of readers on most pieces of furniture.
