Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

I couldn’t really think of any really good photos for this challenge….so I’ll just share this one that I took recently.  I’m not sure there is anything really IN focus as I was just shooting the group of birds against the background.  The reason that I kept it was that there is a good contrast between the somewhat focused “flock” and the blurred background.  The other thing that interests me (that was purely unintentional when I took the photo) is – what is going on in over there by the cars?  Friends exchanging gifts?  Drug deal?  What’s your guess……..????

Sandpipers in the sky….what in the parking lot?

    That’s an amazing shot. It looks like your aperture was set perfectly to get sharp birds against a not too blurry background so we can still see it yet it’s blurred enough to make the birds POW! in the foreground. Great capture.
    And yes, what the HELL is going on in the background???
    One of those shots to treasure.
    I’d blow it up and frame it if I was you

  19. Hya Scott – seeing as there hasn’t been an official weekly photo challenge this week, I’m stepping up and throwing down a challenge for anyone who’s interested.
    I’d love you to join in – the more the merrier. Pass it on. xxx
