Focus On You - "Mornings" Inside & Out

By Carol H.

Absolutely stunning “morning” images posted to the Flickr site this week. There were two images in particular, both by the same photographer, Leanne S., that I just fell in love with. Since I couldn’t decide which one to feature here I decided to include them both!

This first image by Leanne is entitled “Wake” and it really took me back to when my son was a young boy. Trying to get him up in the morning was no small chore let me tell you! I love Leanne’s point of view and the fact that she chose to process this as a black & white lends a timeless quality to it. I’m sure this image will be a treasured one in the family album.

This second image really took my breath away. Leanne’s shallow depth of field brings attention to the frost on the leaf and bit of red revealed where parts of the leaf has turned at the edge. And the bokeh, my goodness, this whole leaf is just shimmering.

Leanne has been a Flickr member since May 2011 with 1,087 photos currently in her feed. Her collection of images have an intimate quality about them that puts me right there. Check out her Flickr site HERE.

I have been an admirer of Leanne's photography for several years now and am so happy to have her as a member of our FOL family. I can see why it was hard to choose between these two shots! Leanne's work has always been good but it has been a pleasure to watch her evolve into a true artist. Congrats, Leanne!

Both are such wonderful photos and perfect for the theme! As you say, Carol, the B&W really enhances to top photo. And I love the saturated colors in the second photos, truly a sign of autumn. Congratulations, Leanne! And thanks for playing along.

Yes Leanne always rocks her photos! Both are beautiful, but frost, really? lol I'm just looking forward to temps in the 80's! :)

Congrats Leanne!
