Through The Grass
Lens: K 50mm f1.2 Camera: Pentax K5 

Photo shot 'from-the-hip' at a couple of inches off the ground. I did this because I was on lunch break from work and didn't want to lie down on the ground in my 'glad-rags'. This photo was shot with an aperture of probably 1.2 with a +1 or +2 diopter close-up lens attached. The camera was set to Manual and probably to underexpose the image because there was full sun on the subject. This is an image in which the background is the subject while the grass in varying degrees of focus is the background.
