Wisteria when you’re near

A macro photograph of a freshly bloomed wisteria flowering plant. The shallow depth of field and deep vignetting evoke a moody feel among the flowers.
Wisteria when you’re near — 100mm | f/4 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/640

I made some time with my camera yesterday albeit it brief. A steady wind backed by strong gusts made for futile macro conditions. Or so I thought. Having just uploaded my shots into Lightroom I quickly saw there were some winners in the set—in fact there were several. Luck was on my side, I somehow managed to snag some interesting selective focus with a shallow depth of field as blossoms erratically moved about the frame. Sometimes you gotta just go with it, right?

Bonus points if you get the lyrically inspired play on words in the title.

    Oh yes, love the lyrical reference. It is music to my ears – like one hand with a stick banging a drum slowly.

    As a little dude growing up in the 80s, Def Leppard was my first favorite band.
