Usually when I’m commuting around Boston by myself, I have a habit of looking around and seeing what there is to take pictures of. About 99% of the time, I see something and immediately dismiss it for one reason or another. But sometimes, something catches my eye.
The park decided to put up two frames by the lake as a photo op for tourists.
I might have fallen for it. I spent about 10 minutes in front of this frame to try and get this shot. I tried my absolute best to get the frame perfectly straight and parallel with my lens. In hindsight, I wish I took another shot to get the background in focus, and then I could blend the two pictures together in post-processing. But on the other hand, the out of focus bridge and trees make it look exceptionally soft. Almost paint-like.
Sometimes I think I worry too much about what the best shot is.
Sometimes I’m glad I took my time to make it right.
