Cultivating Hope

child blowing dandelion

Isn’t summer all about slowing down, plucking dandelions, and then blowing and cultivating hope all over the place?

To get this shot, I really wanted a close up of squishy fingers holding a dandelion with an eager mouth ready to blow. The first images came out darker. Noticing that she was intent on blowing and not moving, I slowed down the shutter speed to get more light. I also wanted to capture as much light (sun was rapidly setting!) and have a soft blurry feel (bokeh) so kept it at f/1.8.

ISO 1250,

50 mm,


1/80 sec
