We have a large chrysanthemum plant sitting on the back deck. It must be one of the biggest, of its type, that I can recall seeing. I have been helping my friend Patrick getting a few lenses repaired and so I have more than the usual number sitting around home at the moment, and thought I would do some comparison testing. There are a few examples at each of a number of different focal lengths. One of the series I have done is a close up on the mum. But as you can see, not all of them could focus close enough to produce a normal image. Not to worry, I’m always curious to see how an out-of-focus image looks.
