View attachment 240486 Just to note, I've taken a break from photography briefly due to an incident in my driveway recently. Where I live has slowly become more 'ghetto' with recent arrivals at the end of the street (I live in a body corp currently).
Recently I was using a telephoto lens on some flowers to find some nice bokeh and angered some bogans who thought I was taking photos of their kids. As anyone who does photography would know, depth of field generally renders everything in the background out of focus when focusing on the foreground.
I think the only thing that stopped my gear from being destroyed or myself assaulted was that they could see my porch security camera pointed right at the driveway where 3 of them stood over me and intimidated me. I even flicked through my photos on camera for them, but I think in that moment I couldn't have persuaded them. As such, until I move I'm unlikely to take walks where I live with my camera gear as I don't need that grief and stress.
Here's a flower from that incident though, sorry no feathers. I think it's kangaroo paw?
As a side note, I hate how compression always reduces the sharpness of uploaded images.
