Photographer's Note

Yesterday afternoon I went to a peaceful village that I started recently due to my job to know and to like: Villeta.

Far from going again to the river shore I started to explore other aspects of this site.

I took many photos that I will be posting in the following days for sure.

As part of the ongoing hunt, one of the themes is Shallow DOF which I still had to contribute. In other words to me was a an open point.

I was attracted almost instantly by the old and rusty barbed wires of a green field where the cows were taking advantage of the green pastures.

When I set my camera to the proper settings, I triggered my thinking about the fact of having a shallow DOF and how by having this you see the farthest objects blurred and fuzzy...

This is supposed to be a good thing and of course a technique to emphasize the attention on a determined object, to focuse on it. I have no objections at all regarding this point. Nothing can be argued here.

Then I compare how we human beings tend to see, think and interpret the world...This also depends of how we "set" our minds to "grab" reality...

I thought then about a "Depth of Mind" concept, which turns to DOM.

- Do I have a shallow DOM?

- Do I see and think only what is nearer?

- Do I prefer the fuziness or the richest details of my complete world?

- Do I have the ability to change "my" settings from a shallow DOM to extend my thinking to wider horizons?

- Even though we "think" something as distinguishable do I prefer not to think about it? Do I prefer the numbness and comfort of my shallow DOM?

Maybe my current DOM impedes me to see better things than what I am focused on now.

Ps.: Set to macro of course. I desaturated a little bit, and I cropped to have a reasonable pic.
