Life Finds a Way

Since I haven't had any commissioned work lately, I've been editing photos from a month or so ago. Last month, I took out my camera to our patio. There is a small fire pit there that we've stopped using since it began to rust over and collect trash. This fall, we noticed that life found a way in between the beer cans and cigarette butts.

The selective focus was achieved by putting both my camera and my lens at peril with the "free-lensing" technique, which produces the tilt effect.
