You Capture:Depth of Field

I love technical photo challenges, so I was up for this one from You Capture at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

This week is Depth of Field: "depth of field (DOF) is the portion of a scene that appears acceptably sharp in the image. Although a lens can precisely focus at only one distance, the decrease in sharpness is gradual on each side of the focused distance, so that within the DOF, the unsharpness is imperceptible under normal viewing conditions."

Here are some pictures of a toy train we picked up at a garage sale for Remington last weekend. 

 Here's another slight bit of DOF. This first one focused on Landon, the second one on Remington.  Mostly I just love these pictures!

And finally, some flower pictures.

I wanted to tell you about The Happiness Project over at my Blog. It’s simple, every Tuesday you just post a photo of something that makes you wildly happy. It’s been so rewarding to meditate each week on what brings me happiness. I would like to invite you to join and link up to Mr. Linky. I am trying to take over the Blogosphere with happiness!

Here is a link to last weeks round up if you want to check it out!
