Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

This is a theme that really appeals to me as I like taking pictures that focus the eye on areas that perhaps aren’t the main subject… here are three very different pictures, but not that different:

Part of the daily post photo challenges.

    It’s one of my faves too. It was taken on the beach in Nice on a warm October early evening. Good memories.

    I like the last one, too, but they’re all good. I think I’m going to do more of this sort of thing. I’m just glad I had a picture that fit.

    Among all the links I’ve clicked to, I believe yours is the first that truly followed the guidelines. Not that the others weren’t beautiful, but I think this is the true essence of the prompt. And they are amazing pictures!

    Wonderful use of shallow depth of field. I love the swimmer most.

    Love them all but I think it’s the analogy between the rocks and the water that makes it happen for the guy gently being spooned by the ocean. Amazing! 🙂

    They are all nice, but the one with stones in the foreground is truly artistic
